Quiltville Mystry Quilt Allietare Part !

I posted awhile back that I decided to do this Mystery Quilt that Bonnie Hunter does every year.  I posted here about the material and colors I chose to use this year. The first clue came out the day after Thanksgiving and I was able to get all the required pieces cut out and all organized into units of 10.  This helps to keep track of the amount you need for this clue, which is 294 pieces!

I have three cardboard sheets holding 10 sets of 10 units for a total of 300 units.  This way I can a few extras if needed.

It took most of the week to get this part done, completing them this morning. Here is the finished results:

I then laid another piece of cardboard on top of this top sheet and rubber band all four sheets together, which holds the pieces in place until I am ready to use them to make bigger units down the road in future parts.  I like this better than using paper plates.  Once the pieces are used, I just file the cardboard sheets away until the next project.

If interested in doing this project, finding out more information, or seeing what others are doing with this mystery quilt, you can go here and it will take it you to Bonnie's blog, Quiltville and the tab Allietare Mystery Quilt.

I will be participating on her blog in her weekly linky party for Part 1, and I will be back in a couple of days to post about Part 2, as it came out yesterday.

That's a good way of doing it! I salvaged some belt boxes (a bit like pizza boxes in size) and used them for project pieces. As they were assembled from flat (with notches not glue) I undid them and reassembled inside out so they are plain n the outside

Great start to the mystery, and a good way of keeping everything in place.
