Cotton Cuts Mystery Quilt

Piazza Puzzle Mystery Quilt – Clue #8

It won’t be too much longer until we are done with the Piazza puzzle mystery quilt from Cotton Cuts! It’s time for clue number 8. This has been so much fun and I can’t wait to see the final quilt! As a reminder, I am doing the small version in the Maggiore colorway. It is a bright and patriotic combination of red, white and blue fabrics the collection is from the Spangled by Wishwell collection for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. The quilt pattern was written by Sheila Christensen of Sheila Christensen Quilts.

Join me as I assemble clue number 8 of the Piazza puzzle mystery quilt and pay attention this month because even though it is an easier month to put together there is a bit of a tricky part.

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.
