Mosaic Mystery Quilt

Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs has started another mystery quilt and of course I have to play along. I really enjoyed making her Magnolia Mystery and can't wait to get started on another one of her wonderful designs.

**resistance is futile when you have no will power**

You only need 4 fabrics for this quilt, so it's easy to pull them from your stash. I scavenged some of my fabrics from a kit I had bought to make a paper pieced tablerunner. I love the fabrics, but wasn't loving the pattern, and this new mystery project works well with these fabrics plus a few FQ additions from the general stash.
Because I get bored easily sewing with yardage, I'm doing a slightly scrappy version. When the instructions say you need 1 yard of Fabric B, I'm using 4 fat quarters of the colour instead of yardage.

Here are my pieces cut and ready to sew. Of course I ran out of the cute background so will try to obtain more.

If you want to join us, fabric requirements are here, and the first link up to s
ee the fabrics people are using is here. There are already over 80 quilters linked up sharing their fabric photos. I enjoyed seeing all the resourceful systems that quilters have developed to keep their quilt pieces organized using clips, stickers, pins, baggies, and baskets.

Love your fabric choices. I too will be using fat quarter s as for the 3 colors.

Your ability to tackle and finish so many SALs never ceases to amaze me.
Such a fresh and pretty color selection.

Resistance works when I have other quilty deadlines and no extra days to Play. Fair and Quilt Festival coming right up. Enjoy the Mystery. I will wait for Quiltville's to start on Black Friday.

Your fabrics are beautiful! The background is darling & that border will be fantastic! I'm resisting this SAL...for now.

I really like the colors your have chosen for this little quilt. I wish I had some of the background fabric to offer you. It is very cute.
