Default Cuts and Bolts NYE2022 mystery

For those of you who follow the New Year's Eve mystery from Sherrie at Cuts and Bolts, she just posted the fabric requirement and initial cutting instructions for this year's quilt. There is a small and large option. I never finish in her time frame but usually really like her quilts. The mysteries are only on FB: https://www.facebook.com/groups/376851042875618/.
I haven't finished a quilt in over a year, so have decided to make this one and Bonnie Hunter's to jumpstart myself.

Sounds like fun but I like to know what I'm making, mystery quilts are not my thing.

So I requested to join and was accepted, but I'm having trouble getting information. There is a PDF link for the larger quilt at the top of the Facebook page, but I can't find directions to the smaller quilt.

Edit

It looks the the pieces are enormous!

Edit 2

Never mind, I found the info in the Files!

Compared to the Bonnie Hunter quilts, most of the pieces are large, but her designs are usually interesting enough that the quilt looks quite intricate. Here's the one I did a few years ago and just got it quilted. The original had 12 blocks but I accidentally used one of the fabrics in another project so had to cut it to 9 blocks plus an extra border top and bottom to make it a rectangle. My version measures around 54 x 66". I think the original small was supposed to be 76 x 96". All her mysteries are in the files section on the FB page so you can look to see what she has done in the past.

That is a very appealing quilt, Belfrybat. I love your fabric choices!

Thanks for the link. I requested to join. I’m not sure I’ll be able to participate in real time, but will keep track of the clues. And follow here too to see what everyone creates.

I put the first (very simple) blocks together wrong so am ripping them out and resewing. Anyone who is doing the mystery, don't make my mistake on the diamond blocks and put the same colour triangle opposite each other. They need to be next to each other. Pits!

I think I'm the only one on the board doing this mystery and realised I hadn't posted my fabrics and first cuts.
