I have been having a lot of fun over the last 4 weeks participating in a mystery quilt project created by Deb Heatherly, the creator of some wonderful Creative Grids rulers. It is a free quilt-a-long for the Grids Girls Facebook Group. It is a private group, but if you are interested, you can request to join. If you are a Creative Grids junkie like me you might want to check it out!
This quilt requires the Pineapple Trim Tool, the Strippy Stars Tool, the Cat's Cradle Tool, and the Ultimate Flying Geese Tool, all from Creative Grids USA. These are specialty rulers, but they all have the ability to help you create many different sizes of quilt block units.
The fabrics that I am using are from my batik stash. I did have to purchase a light background and a dark contrasting constant fabric.
First clue was to make some of these units with the Strippy Stars tool. It's too soon to tell how these will be used yet!
Here are some long rows of Flying Geese. I think I'm going to like this.
There are 4 blocks like this made using the Pineapple Trim Tool. This isn't the usual pineapple block but a variation of it. The top picture is the 4 blocks put together, but this probably isn't how it is going to be. I love a good mystery!
The last unit is the cat's cradle, made using the Cat's Cradle Tool, of course. How do you think this piece of the puzzle might fit in?
In 4 more weeks the mystery will be solved, and I get more curious each week. This isn't genuinely a quilting finish, but I have completed all of the clues. I'll definitely share the real finish with you when it happens! For now I'll link up at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday.
Deb Heatherly has some awesome patterns to accompany the rulers she has created. You can check them out at her site here.
Thanks for stopping by :-)
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
