This quilt, offered by Temecula Quilt Co. on their blog as a free Block of the Day mystery, was very fun to make.  I was able to use one charm pack for the quilt.

As each block was presented, the number of the day corresponded to the number of patches in the block. So block one has one patch and block twelve has twelve patches.  I took the pattern one step further – there are no repeating fabrics in the quilt blocks – each block has completely different fabrics.

I did not set the quilt blocks according to the pattern.  Since there were so many quilts in blog-land with the same pattern, I wanted to set it in an original setting.  In the end, I chose a simple 3 x 4 layout with sashing.  The border is ½” finished squares.

This was a fun quilt to make and I looked forward to the new pattern each day to see what the mystery quilt would turn out to be.
