Design Wall Monday

On my design wall today are some of the blocks from step #1 of the Quiltmaker mystery. Not very exciting.
Step #2 is out so I have peaked ahead and see that there is a lot more sewing for this step. These are my fabrics for the mystery. 
I usually don't use directional prints in mysteries, because you don't have any idea how they will work together in the blocks. But I really like these fabrics, so I plan to be fine with however they work out in the overall quilt design.
To visit other quilty blogs and get some design wall inspiration, hop over to Patchwork Times.

I used a directional print in the only mystery I ever did and it worked out fine. I like your selections! Have fun.

Looks like it will be lovely--I love prints with words on them, and I like your colors you've chosen.

I'm impressed with the mystery. It looks great so far. I'm a bit mysteried out now. I realize I've made mostly mystery quilts over the last few years so decided to take a break and do other stuff.

Your Hexagon Honeycomb is darling. How about putting half hexagons in the spaces if you want even edges or just bind the "jagged" edges for a different look. Way cool beginning though. Bonnie

Won't it be fun to see how these beautiful fabrics develop into a beautiful quilt. Have fun with it. I love you Heaser.
