Sunbonnet Sleuth Week #2

Are you ready to start sewing? This mystery quilt is going to be so fast and easy to make. That's the appeal of modern quilting. Lots of straight seams, little or no triangles. Bold colors, oversize prints if you like them or solid fabrics if you prefer.

Sew....let's get started with the first set of blocks for the quilt.


The white in the quilt would most often be a solid white for the modern quilter. The teal can be solid or one of those oversize modern prints. Your choice, have fun!

Remember, leave a comment on this week's installation of the mystery to put your name in the "hat" to win a copy of my new book: Log Cabin Quilts, the Basics and Beyond. The winner will be annouced afte the mystery is completed.

  3. Hi Jean Ann, Is this #2 for the Dotty Do-Little quilt? There is no teal fabric in the first week instruction. I am easily confused.
    Can't wait to see you Thursday.

    Thank you!!
    (I'm going with the large scale print, too! That's really "jumping into the deep end of the pool" for me! LOL! Thanks for the encouragement/opportunity to take the dive!)
    Taking a deep breath!....

  10. Thank you Trish.... thought I was losing my mind for a minute... I will wait for clarification before cutting (looks like they should both be longer)

    2. my take on this is that the teal is the aqua. and, that the white measurements should be 10 1/2 for the first part, and 10 1/2 for the second part too? it would yield a 10 1/2 by 14 1/2 rectangle. hoping for some clarification. i cut my large print already to the 8 6 1/2 by 10 1/2 so am going to go ahead and sash them.

  15. I reviewed Week #2 and the cutting for the white side strips was wrong. I have corrected the clue and the correction is posted. If you cut them wrong, please email me at jeanannquilts@gmail.com
