Carrousel Mystery

November signals the start of a new mystery by Françoise Maarsse from the excellent quilt shop De Quilterij in Den Bosch. Having finished two mysteries already I know how this works. The pattern also includes a mini mystery each month. More fun!
Home sweet home


Now, I was busy and could not start the assigned blocks immediately. That did not sit right with me. I wanted to get started. The fabric was almost jumping out of the box, couldn't wait to get sliced in to little pieces....and who am I to say no!

So, in the midst of everything going on here I was fondling fabric, taking my time to choose the right combination, marvelling in the colours and designs.....aaaahhh heaven! Eventually I managed to get the blocks for the big mystery done. That includes 8 x 18 triangles I had to cut...no idea why but no doubt I'll find out next year!
Block 1 - times 8
 Just in time, because on Thursday the new pattern will be in the mail and we start all over again!

All the little pieces.....
Lots of love,


  1. Het is een mooie zeshoek! Leuke kleurencombinatie! Was nog een hele klus vind je niet om alle driehoekjes te snijden. Nog een paar dagen en dan mogen we weer met deel twee beginnen. Groetjes, Annemarie
