Pat Sloan's Mystery Quilt Block 1 and 2 in Another Color Plus Squares and My Original Blue Tiny Print Quilt Blocks!

I was telling my friend, Linda, that I am doing Pat Sloan's Mystery Quilt. Pat shares one block a month. Linda told me she made Pat Sloan's 2014 Mystery Quilt and she liked it so much that she made it in two color ways! I told her I am only going to make it in my favorite tiny blue prints... But I loved the first quilt block so much, I wanted to make it again. 

I had these cool blue/purple/greenish print scraps. It wasn't enough for a quilt and it did not match my tiny prints. So I told myself, I am going to just make one more of the first block and use it for a place mat or pillow topper.

I made the quilt block and then Pat shared her hip to be square challenge and I cut the scraps into tiny 1 1/2 inch squares and added a little more fabric and a couple borders and it just kept growing! See the next couple photos...

I love it!  Thanks Pat for the inspiration!

It would make a great pillow top! I love all the colors of the tiny squares!

Pat Sloan shared Quilt Block 2 - Toes in the Sand. I made it in my tiny blue prints and then I made it again in the batik fabrics. 

What am I doing making 2 color ways ? ? ?

I love my tiny blue prints with the splash of blue batiks, but I am loving my bright batik mixtures too!

I had to pull from my stash. I combined prints and batiks and some dye print fabrics.

There were a few pieces of fabric left from quilt block one.

I found a nice assortment of colors in blues and purples and bit of green.

I stitched up the cut aways and made some little pinwheel blocks.

Now I have Quilt Block 1 and 2 and Hip to be Square Block and some extra small quilt blocks.

I pulled all the fabric from my stash.  I am ready for next month's quilt block.  I packed it all into a tote with my instruction sheets from the PDF's from Pat Sloan. 

At this point, I am inspired to make 2 quilt tops in both color ways.

I love the tiny blue prints!

and I love the Toes in the Sand Quilt Block.

I pulled a few tiny blue print fabrics from my blue stash ...

... But I am only going to put this one in a small tote, as I can not put all my blue tiny print fabric in one box.

Yes I am blessed to have a ton of blue fabric - mostly in tiny prints.

I made some pinwheel blocks from the cut aways from the tiny print too.

Thanks Pat Sloan for all of your inspiration!

These are both great colorways but I especially like the second one with the purple and green added to the blue! Good job with using your leftovers.
