Mosaic Mystery QAL

While most of the quilts I make are my original design, I still really love participating in QALs.  It is fun to be sewing along with other people.  Plus it is nice to just sit and sew without thinking too much!

The Mosaic Mystery QAL is being hosted by Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs.  I've done her mysteries in the past - in fact for this years quilt, I'm using the leftovers from the 2017 QAL (see that quilt)!

Fabric is Painter's Palette solids and the colors are Frolic, Cadet, and Aluminum.

The September blocks were the little 'house' blocks shown above.

For October, the clue was to make some Square in a Square blocks.  I had fun playing with possible layouts below.

As always, I am downsizing the blocks to end up with a wall hanging instead of a larger quilt.  Because my version of the SiaS block needed to be 3 1/2'', I actually paper pieced them for greater accuracy and less frustration!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. You've made really good progress on your blocks. Cheryl's mystery quilts are always fun and she makes it easy to pick out fabrics that will work in the final quilt. I'm using a mix of left overs and stash fabrics. It's my rule for starting a mystery, it has to use up stash. Your guess would make for a very fun quilt.

  2. Great colors, used wonderfully!


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