I’m loving the concept of the ‘mystery quilt’ & challenged myself to complete it.
Who did you have in mind for this challenge? Experienced quilters? Beginners? Both? Not all members of 2Q are able to attend your regular meetings, and I saw this as a brilliant exercise to have more people involved in the grass-roots of what 2Q is all about… learning new skills from the more experienced members.
One thing I would appreciate in the notes/instructions is ‘tips and tricks’ for new players. I presume each block is designed with a particular skill /technique in mind. Is there a ‘best way’ to achieve the desired results? Are there pitfalls to avoid? Experienced quilters could gloss over them – those wanting to learn more would absorb them.January 13, 2020 at 3:47 am #684IsabellParticipant
Yes, I second this. I am not a total beginner but I am not that good with ‘complicated’ block patterns yet (I love my squares!!). So tips for new players ‘best ways to do’ and how to avoid pitfalls would be great.January 13, 2020 at 6:23 am #698adminKeymaster
I am now adding Tips’n’Hints to each of the blocks.
I have pulled each block apart, to show you how I would stitch the pieces together.
You might have noticed that the later blocks so far are a little more complicated than the earlier couple.May 13, 2020 at 7:27 am #1366DalbyParticipant
Hi Can you tell me they allow a 1/4 inch seam allowance on their measurements – I don’t want to waste material in case I run out – yet to start first block – I am a beginnerMay 13, 2020 at 11:43 am #1367adminKeymaster
Yes, there is a 1/4″ seam allowance included in the measurements.
