QAL with solids

I really enjoy quilting with solids and are using AMB Solids in two different mystery QALs with new clues each month!

The first is one sponsored by American Made Brand called My Land.  Block 6 is called Canyon Lands.

(Colors are much richer in person than I'm able to capture in this photo.)  

And here are my six blocks.  I am downsizing each of these to a 6'' block and turning them - when feasible - into a paper pieced block.

Next up with the Meadow Mystery QAL from Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs.   For this mystery QAL, all I had to get started were really excellent directions on which fabric should be light / medium / dark and some advise on what fabrics would sit next to another fabric so you could validate contrast.

I've downsized such that these HST are 2 1/2 '' unfinished.  (The pattern calls for 4 1/2 ''.)   Here are the September and October blocks.

Have a wonderful day! Patty

  1. You just keep downsizing everything. It's awesome! But how do you figure out what size to make the smaller blocks?


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
