Magical Mystery/RSC18: March - green

This week's Magical Mystery clue used up the remaining parts we had cut, resulting in these little 4ps.

We have quite a collection of sub-units assembled now.  I've done enough to make 36 8" blocks.  I'm probably going to pull out a few more fabric pairs and increase my block count to 48 to end up with a more useful-size quilt. 

Libby will reveal the solution on Monday, but meanwhile she encouraged participants to try out various arrangements with their parts.  Each fabric pair's worth of parts will yield four blocks.  I'm thinking we'll end up with something like this:

That's an interesting arrangement! Just not the right answer. BUT it points out what I want youall to see -- that some of the simplest shapes can be combines into very complex looking blocks.

It seems like you’re having too much fun playing with the block arrangement! But how can you go wrong with those cute fabrics? I grew up in So Cal, close to Big Bear (Covina).

I like what you came up with there! I have my parts all made - now just need to play around with them a bit!

Cathy said...

I like the arrangement you came up with. I have all my parts finished but I'm not a player-arounder so will just wait to see the mystery solved.

I was happy to get my block parts sewn. No time to play with arrangements. It looks like you are going to have enough blocks to actually MAKE something!! I went the 2 FQ route, just to play along.

Very fun mystery!
