Mystery Block Fabrics

I'm teaching a Mystery Block class at my LQS starting next month. I can't show you the blocks I've made so far because that would spoil the mystery. I can show you the fabrics though.

There will be 12 blocks, one each month for the next year. Each block will use one of the fabrics in the top and row and some or all three of the fabrics in the bottom row. The pieces for each block are cut using our new Accuquilt Studio Cutter. Prior to starting this project, I had only used the cutter for strips or squares. All of the mystery blocks use triangles, diamonds and squares. I have been impressed with how easily these blocks are going together when cut so precisely. Everything lines up so nicely!

Kits will be available or students can choose their own fabrics and learn to use the cutter as part of the class.

I left a note on your other blog. I love these fabrics and those brights will look stunning with that Gray Swirl. Wish I lived closer so I could join the fun.

Looks awesome! I'm so excited you are getting to use that Studio cutter. I really need to use mine more! (Mine's a baby though)
