Scrap Dance Pachanga Mystery QAL

I have taken the plunge and am participating in the Scrap Dance Pachanga Mystery Quilt Along

hosted by Carole ~ From My Carolina Home ~ https://frommycarolinahome.com/2021/01/08/scrap-dance-pachanga-mystery-quilt-along/

The idea is that this is a mystery and I have no idea what pattern I will be making. Who doesn’t love a great mystery? Twice a month, on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. Carole will post a new direction for the construction of the quilt. No deviating or changing the directions 🙂

The first direction was the size choices and cutting directions. I was delighted to see the table topper option. Since this is my first mystery quilt along and I have 3 panel quilts and a log cabin quilt in progress I was worried about taking on to much. This will be perfect to test my wings in addition this will be hand pieced and quilted.

Saturday I cut out my pattern pieces and Sunday I picked out my material choices and cutout the required pattern pieces.

My first choice for the background was the light pink material but after rereading the directions and suggestions for fabric choices and what would work best, I went back to my fabric stash and chose this deep bright blue fabric for the background. Much brighter and more of a contrast.

Ready for the next step on the 4th Friday of this month 🙂

      I had to really think about was I taking on a little bit too much – but I thought a little mystery was perfect to spice things up. Hope you can pull some fabric together and jump in Kathy 🙂
