Cotton Cuts Mystery Quilt

Cotton Cuts Piazza Puzzle Mystery Quilt Clue #3

Get ready to assemble the Cotton Cuts Piazza puzzle mystery quilt clue #3 with me. There are 2 sections to this month’s clue and both of them are gorgeous. In fact the first section has me very intrigued and I’m thinking about an entire quilt designed around that look. The second section is a good looking and traditional block that would look great with all kinds of scrap fabrics if you wanted to repeat it.

I am really loving the fabric I chose this time. I am doing the small version of the Maggiore colorway. It is a festive combination of red, white and blue fabrics that are from the Spangled by Wishwell collection for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. The pattern was written by Sheila Christensen of Sheila Christensen Quilts.

Join me as I assemble clue number 3 of the Piazza puzzle mystery quilt!

As with my last mystery quilt called Sew Sweet, I will be doing a video tutorial to help you out. I find that helpful for folks if they are stuck on one particular section.

Puzzle Mystery Tips

Here are a couple of tips that I have learned after doing these quilts.

  1. Take a picture of the color/fabric chart on the back of your pamphlet. If you lose it, that photo will come in very handy.
  2. Label the sections when you are done with a particular clue. I forgot to do that with one month of the other quilt I am making and it took a while to find out which section was which. You’ll be glad you did when you are trying to assemble the quilt at the end of the 10 months.
  3. Follow the pressing directions on the pattern. The pattern writers have really good pressing directions. If you press as indicated by the arrows you should have no problem with assembly.
  4. There is a facebook group for all of the mystery quilters. I suggest joining it because it is a great place to ask questions and see other people’s work. You can also show off your own progress.

I’d love to know what colorway you are working on. Say hi in the comments and let me know. If you have any questions about the piazza puzzle mystery quilt, I’ll be happy to answer them.

Happy Quilting! – Claudia
