Mystery Quilt Reveal

 
TA DA!!! The mystery quilt is a mystery no more! I am pretty sure that most of you figured it out after making the blocks last month, but for those of you who are strict rule followers and waited, I hope you like it! Once the blocks are assembled it's just a matter of using the strip sets for sashing and the nine patches for cornerstones.

 
Now do you see why it was so important to have your four patches turned the right direction? If your four patches don't line up with your nine patches, your chains won't link properly.

 
I do hope that you enjoyed this little mystery of ours and are ready to get it all put together. Feel free to add borders if you like. I chose not to. I decided just to layer, baste, quilt and bind! So it is DONE!
 
If you missed any of the steps, or would like to make this quilt, the pattern is found at the top of the blog by clicking on the word Mystery Quilt. This free pattern will be available for a limited time, so be sure to get started soon!

 
And look how nice it looks hanging on my back fence? This photo was taken at midday but is dark because a huge storm is brewing. I had to get the photo quick before the bad weather arrives.
 
If you are making this quilt, or have finished it, please send me a photo! I can't wait to see how they turn out! Email me at butterflythreadsquilting@gmail.com and I will post your photos (unless you ask me not to) and we can see how much variety one pattern can offer.
 
Thanks again for playing along, I hope you had as much fun as I did!
 
Enjoy every stitch!
Diane

    1. Oh probably six months. I will try to create a printer friendly version before then (once I learn how!) And I'll be sure give a warning before it's gone. So don't panic yet!
