COSMOS Puzzle Mystery Quilt :: August Block

I was very excited when I received an email asking if I'd like to participate in a Mystery Puzzle Quilt Blog Hop, and after receiving my August clue I was even more excited! 
A little background first!  Each month, one of us will assemble a Puzzle Mystery Quilt clue.  At the end of the 9 month project, Cotton Cuts will finish the quilt and raffle it off, with all the proceeds going to Valley Industries.  Valley Industries is a sheltered workshop for disabled individuals that Cotton Cuts uses for their box fulfillment process.  You can enter the raffle for the quilt here: Cotton Cuts Mystery Quilt Raffle.

When I received my clue of fabric I couldn't wait to get started!  First of all, all the pieces are precut!  That means I don't have to worry about cutting and I could get right down to business!

Not only do you receive detailed easy to follow instructions for the mystery block and precut pieces, but you also get a this handy fabric chart.  I referred back to it often while putting my blocks together.


I needed to make four (4) of one block.  Each section went together quite fast.  

Have I mentioned how much I love that the pieces are precut?!

I feel like I flew through each section because I could just grab and go with the pieces.  Plus, I love the colorway we got to work with!

This is the finished block!  I'm so curious how this quilt will look in the end!  The mystery is killing me!

Since I have no clue about the layout, I took my four finished blocks and played with a few layouts.  

It isn't how they will be in the finished quilt I'm sure, but I had to satisfy my curiosity somehow!

All in all, this was a fun little project and I'm so grateful to have been a part of it!  You can get all the details about this quilt at: Cool Cottons Puzzle Mystery Quilt.

  1. It looks great! I never thought of the "X" layout in your last picture. This is going to be a fun mystery. I'm doing a similar colorway - Erika, for my daughter.

    1. The piecing couldn’t have gone better with the precut pieces! It just makes it so much easier!

  2. Great block and a great concept --- mystery BOM sent in precuts, very cool!

    1. I thought the concept was great with the precuts. It would make a BOM so much less stressful!

  3. Very bright and fun fabrics. I love a good mystery quilt along!

    1. I’ve never done a precut BOM or a mystery BOM, but I love the idea of precuts for the entire quilt!

  4. That is a cool project!! and I really like your block!!!

  5. Love your block Jayne. Cutting is my least favorite step - I like to get right to the sewing!

  6. Your blocks are amazeballs, Jayne! xoxo

  7. Oh, how fun, when all you have to do is sew! What a fun project!
