Hooray, the Wednesday Block-of-the-Month club at Ruth's Stitchery is doing a mystery quilt this year! And it's by my favorite mystery quilt designer, Debbie Caffrey.
This quilt requires only four fabrics. I'm using batiks from my stash:
Ginny advised us to put a tiny snippet of each fabric in order on our instruction sheet, as it is easy to get confused as the project progresses. What a smart idea! (Umm, yeah, name of quilt covered up by request of designer. Don't want to spoil the mystery for other quilters.)
Debbie advises, "make a sample to ensure your 1/4" seam is really really 1/4". Here's mine, perfect!
And here is step one, completed.
