It is time for the final installment of Mystery Quilt 2014! The mystery of the quilt’s design is unveiled and quilt along members may discover what they have been making! For those of you following along on Notions:
Part 1 & Part 2 had lots of cutting and piecing. Part 3 has minimal cutting (only the Gs) but lots of piecing with many points to keep sharp and some diagonal lines to keep straight between blocks. Just for fun, four diagonal lines come together when blocks are joined. Sound familiar? These were skills that were addressed in the Perfect Points Sampler Quilt Along two years ago. I would recommend reviewing the Perfect Points and the Positioning Pin Tutorial on the CT website or download the PDF in the Quick Links section below. The Part 3 Notes provide some additional instructional notes and photos, a discussion of secondary patterns, and images of the quilt in a dozen other colorations.
