I know I’ve said it before, but can I just tell you how absolutely thrilled I was with the success of Gypsy Queen, our very first Mystery Quilt Along. So thrilled, in fact, that I’ve already put together our 2016 project! Introducing ….
A little bit about this Mystery QAL:
- Like Gypsy Queen, the Beguiling Mystery QAL is a FREE Quilt Along running from the end of February to the end of July.
- This year’s quilt finishes at 80″ square. It has a fresh, summery-yet-sophisticated feel and we’ve picked a gorgeous palette of blues an golds to work with!
- Yes! We’re re-using a few of those fabulous Artisan Fabrics by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics from Gypsy Queen – mainly because I’m obsessed with these colors right now … and this quilt will be living next to Gypsy Queen in my own living room, so I wanted them to get along. 🙂 We’ve also thrown in some gorgeous blues from Pat’s latest line, Dare. Don’t they play well together?
- The difficulty level for this pattern is somewhere between a Very Confident Beginner and Intermediate. The pattern uses Half-Square-Triangle and Half-Rectangle blocks, Flying Geese blocks, some traditional piecing, and some “Stitch, Trim, & Flip” type blocks. No applique, templates, or special rulers required. It’s very straight-forward construction, but there are lots of tiny blocks, so accurate cutting and piecing skills are a must!
- If you’ve liked our Aspen Glow and Gypsy Queen Quilts, then chances are, you’ll love this one too!
