I woke up at 6am - without my "alarm" a.k.a. my husband. :D He's pretty worn out from the first week of school. Getting up at 5:30am again is a bit of a shock. :P But I started to work on Ann's mystery. First she had us do 4-patches, then HSTs.
We put them together to make this unit.
This was at clue 7, and there were eight clues. The beauty of this block is that you have NO idea how it's gonna look in the end. So many different ways to arrange and play with them. So I'm on my toes waiting for clue 8... and Ann surprises me with giving us 7 different options for arranging the blocks. Talk about a mystery til the end! :)
I picked option 1, arranging the blocks all in one direction.
If you look, you can see pink slanted stars. It's a beautiful baby quilt size, maybe even lap size? I'm planning to put a small teal green border around it, then bind it with the pink.
Ann also suggested making the blocks into a Jewel Box, but I already did that last year.
Another successful mystery from Ann! :)
