Clue 1 done.   48 of these little beggars! 

I loved the colourful strip sets more before I  added the black background pieces, but I'm hoping that once the mostly yellow #6 gets added in,  it will spark it up.  It's just difficult to know since the quilt's a mystery!  Time will tell.   0_0

16 of these completed.  I'm not over enthusiastic at the moment.  Think perhaps my 3 & 4 are too pale but we will see.

Well just finished sewing and squaring my blocks, not sure if it's my measuring or my seams or a bit of both but I have had to square them to 8" but they are all 8" and hopefully it will be ok. I now know my unpicking skills are excellent  0_0 after changing number 1

You put me to shame, Lowena.  Your fabrics look lovely.

I am STILL working on clue 1 and catching up on The Archers.  It's January in Ambridge.

Note for teacher
Please excuse Pearl from this weeks task as she has been very busy making the blocks for Iminei's Sewing Place mysteryquilt  ;)

Here is my offering for clue 2 .....  I'm happy with them but can see that fabric 6 (which I haven't decided on yet) is going to be key.  The red is actually a nice pinky red - it comes out a bit brown on the screen

Ta da!

 Apologies to Lowie....I'm sorry...I know, I know, green...I can see you wincing all the way from here! And if I am too be completely honest Lowie, you brought a little smile to my face when I pounced on these fabrics in the remnant bin.....just where I reckon you'd turf 'em!!!!
The greens in my fabric 2 are actually quite vibrant...they've washed out a bit with the phone pic and fabric 1 (my background) is a very soft lemon with a swirl in it.
