Secret Santa Update

Step #3 - Nine Patch blocks


Are you following along with the Temecula Christmas mystery? It is a lot of sewing! So far we have sewn 176 blocks in a month.

My favourite blocks are these little 9 patches. 
I found some novelty fabrics in the scrap bin and fussy cut angels, Santa faces and stars for some of the centre squares that finish at 3/4"... very cute!





Here is my bin of finished parts. I have not yet finished the 48 four patch units, but they are underway and will be finished in time for the reveal of step #5 today... can't wait to see what we are making next. 
Hop over to Temecula Quilts to see what the next step is! Have I mentioned that I love mystery quilts?!?!

It seems you are always making mystery quilts! I can never get into them as I like to see what a quilt will look like when finished before I start it. I think your small blocks though

Such tiny little squares...wow! Mystery quilts scare me a bit because I have to visual what's going on. This looks like it will be amazing when it is done!

Teeny tiny!! Have fun playing in the scraps. Love the cute fussy-cutting.

Very fun fussy-cut centers. :)
Now that you have seen what all these parts make, what do you think?

I love these small mysteries the best. Although I am saving the patterns...no times at present to do yet another new start!!! Loving your fuzzy cutting!

Your blocks look great so far! I was really, really tempted but am too far behind now to make this quilt as a mystery. But I'm saving the instructions to maybe make it later, perhaps in non-holiday colors. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying yours very much :)
