Mosaic Mystery QAL - November blocks

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)!

I'm also downsizing the quilt.  How?  I take the finished size of the block in the clue and make a block half that size.  For example, this month's units were to be 6 1/2'' unfinished or 6'' finished.  Therefore, I've made mine so they finish at 3'' or 3 1/2'' unfinished. 

I put together a quick paper pieced pattern to help with overall accuracy of those compound HST units - that FPP pattern is 2" square!  I did the same thing for last month's square in a square units.

I'm loving my blocks so far!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Awesome! I love that you created a PP pattern. I really need to learn how to use my EQ8.

  2. Such pretty blocks--I like that down-sizing idea a lot...hugs, Julierose

  3. It's always fun to watch your mini versions come together.


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