Mystery Quilt Project -- Second Installment Done

A few days ago I showed you the fabrics I purchased for Myra's Mystery Quilt Project called Criss-Cross Applesauce. Well, I have finished the second set of instructions which tell how to cut up the fabric. See what I have...

Mystery Quilt Fabric CutIt sure doesn't look like much now that it's all cut up. I found the cutting instructions very clear once I numbered the fabrics listed in the first installment. So I numbered them like this:
  1. #1 Border print and binding (red paisley)
  2. #2 Background print (light tan leaves)
  3. #3 Tone-on-tone print (green leaves)
  4. #4 Tone-on-tone print (gold)
Then I printed out the October 11th post from Blue Meadow Designs which has the cutting instructions. The background fabric is listed first here so I numbered that with a big 2 so that I would be sure to use the correct fabric for that cutting instruction. Next is the cutting instruction for the border print fabric so that got a big 1 next to it. The first tone-on-tone was next so it got a big 3 and the other tone-on-tone was numbered 4.

I did all the cutting as instructed based on my numbering system to keep the fabrics straight. Then I moved on to the third installment in which Myra shows how to assemble a Nine Patch Block and a Border Block. She even has really cool illustrations to make it easier.

Next time, I'll show you how my blocks turned out and share some more helpful hints on how I kept track of what fabric went where.

Happy Stitching!
