Sorry for the late review, I had some unexpected family things to take care.  This week's Clue reveals a new to the series Block, Wind Does Blow, which is made up of Split Rects and Four-Patches.

Both of which you have mastered over the last few weeks, so this should be pretty easy.  I have a couple reminders and tips below.  New Pattern - Twisted TwineSpeaking of the Split Rects, I've paired it up with the newer Studio 180 Design Corner Pop III in my latest release Twisted Twine!
Twisted Twine is a fun, quick and easy pattern, designed to use those fabulous medium-to-large scale prints for the Twisted Stars.   There are four sizes included: Baby 52” x 52”, Throw 69” x 69”, Queen 86” x 103”, King 103” x 120”The Twine Sashing comes together to create the alternate block of spinning Twine.

It is StashBUSTER Tuesday!   Once again, I've partnered up with some fabulous quilt designers for Quilt Block Mania!   I have a bunch to share today; new pattern that is launching, a new class, and a free Block download!NEW PATTERN RELEASEI adore this month's Stashbuster Quilt, Turning Up Pumpkins.  You can make this fabulous quilt with stash, scraps, or new fabric.   The pumpkins are made with 10-11 Fat Quarters. I selected Moda's Fig Tree's All Hallow Eve and then supplemented with a few older Moda Fat Quarters.  The setting blocks are made with yardage; 1 yards darker gray and 1/2 yard lighter gray.  Add 2 yards Background and a fabulous border and you are all set!This is the perfect Fall pattern design, you can use similar-in-color Fat Quarters to make up your Pumpkins (or even Apples) .  You could even go with Halloween theme fabric and make this more of a Halloween quilt.    You don't have to use gray for your setting, as black fabric or brown fabric would wo…

Well you have made it to Clue #11!  You should be very proud of yourselves.  This is probably the toughest Mystery I've done to date.  I'm so proud and thrilled with all the photos of completed Blocks and Center being posted in the Holiday Solstice Facebook group.  This week's block, is slightly easier....  We are still dealing with little units but not as intricate.  Hear the Bells is made up of V Block Units and Square Squared Units.  
I have a few reminders and tips below, but first I want to remind you of a few things I have going on.  Now that summer is wrapping up, many of you may find yourself looking for fall projects.  I wanted to remind you about my Timeless with a Twist, Technique Building Series.
