New Mystery Block Plus a Free Class

Hi everyone!

***Spoiler Alert*** In this post, I’m going to share my solution to a paper pieced mystery block. If you are working on this quilt block by Paper Panache and do not wish to see my solution, then click away now! I will post pictures and more about the mystery below.

I wanted to let everyone know about a free quilting class being offered at Craftsy this week. The class is called “Piece, Patch, Quilt: Basic Quiltmaking Skills” presented by Gail Kessler. This class has 11 lessons centered around basic quilting skills from cutting your fabric to finishing your quilt by adding the binding and label.

This month, I am participating in a paper pieced mystery block by Linda of Paper Panache. Linda has some wonderful and intricate paper pieced patterns on her site so go check it out! I’ve got my eye on her snow globe pattern as it would make such an adorable addition to my holiday decor.

I just finished mystery block #70 and will be posting my solution below. I followed the fabric color recommendations pretty closely, but did stick to fabrics already in my stash.

Here’s a close-up of the delicious treat:

The mystery block finishes at 8-inches by 8-inches. I decided to add a 1-1/2 inch border from dark blue fabric to the sides and the top of the block. For the bottom, I added a 3-inch border and hand-embroidered the name of the object presented in this mystery block.

Finally, I made a little quilt sandwich and did some free-motion quilting on my domestic machine.

Doesn’t that pumpkin pie look delicious? I can’t wait for Thanksgiving to arrive so I can enjoy some homemade pie.

I’m linking this paper pieced block up at Quiet Play’s Paper Piecing Party today.

Happy quilting!
