Default Fabric cut & waiting

Just finished cutting my pieces for the New Year's Day mystery quilt from Merry Mayhem. Haven't made any of her patterns before but the pieces are nice & big so thought I'd give it a go. Is anyone else doing it?

Love your focus fabric - the other fabrics coordinate perfectly.

Looks like fun! I love the birds. I thought about doing her Mystery...but I think I'm going to be buried by Bonnie Hunters!

I'm doing it-- but I thought her instructions said to cut squares. You've cut triangles. Am I missing something? She did say to pencil draw a line diagonally on the lightest color squares... I cut out my squares for the twin size, and since she indicates she did the quilt sizes to allow for a border if wanted, I'll probably make a border after the reveal. If I like the pattern I might make another, but with fabric I like better. I chose some older fabric that I don't mind using for a charity quilt. If there will be large pieces (I'm guessing that too, else how can you sew it in only one day?) then I might not want to keep it. I don't usually sew with large pieces. :-) My darkest print is a crazy patch cheater print. I'm hoping that will give some interest!

I have done one before and was very pleased. I might join in also but I have not picked out my fabric yet.
