Design Wall Monday

It's a boring design wall today. This is the first sewing step in the Meadow Mist Designs most recent free mystery quilt called "Morewood Mystery". 
Mystery steps are posted once a month which is a workable pace for me to keep working on lots of other projects and not fall behind with this one. 

This photo shows how huge the blocks are - about the size of one of my miniature quilts! It feels like I am working with giant pieces to make these 6" squares!

All of my fabrics for this project were found in my stash. It was an easy pattern to pull fabrics for - a background (black on white) and 4 colours (orange, pink, green and yellow) that won't touch each other. Easy.

It was a lot of cutting to do, and I don't usually cut the fabric for a whole quilt at once, but I do for Cheryl's mysteries. Most of the cutting was done during a "zoom cutting party" with my friend Debby who is also sewing this mystery using her collection of Tula fabrics. I looking forward to working on it each month over the fall and winter.
Linking up to Small Quilts.

Those blocks are huge compared to your mini quilts! A new mystery is always fun. Say hi to Debbie for me.

That is a funny shot of the giant HSTs! Will they maybe be cut up smaller later? I have to do Zoom for the first time tonight and am not really looking forward to trying to see everyone on my tablet!
