Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery is well under way. On Friday morning, she announced clue three: four-patches! In her quilt, they are light and dark purples. I went with blue and very dark grey for mine.
I played around with different ways to make them, and I decided I'm happiest sewing them one square at a time. Strip piecing is marginally faster, but I enjoy the process more when I do it this way. I also find that everything comes out just a little bit more accurately when I'm working with individual pieces.
Once I finished the clue, I was ready to experiment with layouts. I pulled out last week's tri-recs units and played with different ways of arranging them with the four-patches. I really like how the golden yellow stands out against the darker fabrics.
I am joining Bonnie's Mystery Monday Link-Up. Head on over to her blog to see what other people have been making.
