I joined a mystery paper-pieced quilt along in September 2015, created and organized by my sister, Tonya. She makes really fun designs and I couldn't wait to see how this came out! She introduces the Mystahhhhry Shindig HERE where you can find links to the paper pieces and even a Facebook group to share your progress on. You can also find all the links and information on fabric and such right HERE. I plan to make the full sized version that will measure 62.5" from point to point.
Clue 1 is to make 12 large diamonds. I chose this fun sewing fabric which has all kinds of buttons, sewing machines, scissors, etc on it. Cutting out a large diamond window allowed me to see where I wanted to fussy cut my large diamonds. 6 of the large diamonds were then sewn into a star for the center of the quilt.
Clue 2 is all about getting down to business on basting the large 3" triangles. These will be used throughout the quilt design and it's easier to make them in a batch like this.
This backpack was created for a customer headed to Hawaii on vacation. She wanted something easily recognizable and was able to pick the fabrics she wanted. She loved it and it was exactly what she needed for the trip!
