Foothills Mystery Quilt - Square in a Square Blocks

Foothills Mystery Quilt {Square in a Square}

We just rolled our calendars over to October, which means another set of instructions have been posted for the Foothills Mystery Quilt hosted by Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs. You can check out my previous history in the Mystery Quilt series in these posts:

  1. Foothills Mystery Quilt {Fabric Selection} (July 2014)
  2. Foothills Mystery Quilt {Fabric Cutting} (August 2014)
  3. Foothills Mystery Quilt {HSTs} (September 2014)

This month, we are to make (12) 6.5″ Square in a Square blocks. After last month’s 144 HSTs (that I even helped my mother prepare), I was glad for a little lighter work load. I spent right at 1 hour and 15 minutes making my 12 blocks.

In completely unrelated news, I noticed I had missed a FaceTime chat request with my brother when I went to snap a picture of these blocks to post on Instagram. I had a quick chat with him, during which my darling little niece hung up on me. Haha! 🙂

    very nice. I love what I’m seeing on the mystery quilt, but I just can’t make myself do one, I like knowing where I’m headed too much. 🙂

    Those blocks look great. Seems a long time to wait till November to see some more progress though now. I think I’m maybe not good with mysteries, if I were doing it myself it might drive me a little potty!

  6. They are turning out great… loving this! It is slowly coming together…

    This is looking great. I’ve never done a mystery quilt before, so it’s fun watching how yours is progressing. Keeps the mystery alive!

    I can’t believe how many blog posts I’ve missed! I made sure to follow you on Blog Lovin’ so that doesn’t happen again.

    I love these blocks. So simple, but they look so amazing together. And your fabric choices are fantastic. I can’t wait to see what this mystery quilt looks like finished! Great work!!
