At the bottom of this post will be a link box. Please link up to your blog post or photo showing your project with all the clues so far completed. A drawing will be held on Thursday for the winner of a Stash Pack from Vicki’s Etsy shop. Thanks again, Vicki, for sponsoring this mystery and the gifts!
Your center should be made now.
Clue #4, Step 1:
Fabric 2 – Cut 4 – 2-1/2″ strips.
Cut two strips to 32-1/2″ and attach to the sides of the center. Cut two strips 36-1/2″ and attach to the top and bottom of the center. Your top should now measure 36-1/2″ x 36-1/2″.
Clue #4, Step 2:
This is the block we will be making for the pieced border, which is Border #2. The blocks will be 4″ finished or 4-1/2″ unfinished.
NOTE: If you use Electric Quilt and would rather paper piece these blocks, this is called “Economy Patch”. If you are cutting and piecing the traditional way, please follow these directions:
Fabric 6 – Cut 20 – 2-1/2″ squares.
Fabric 4 – Cut 20 – 3-1/2″ squares. Cut these on the diagonal twice so you get 4 triangles from each square or a total of 80 triangles.
Fabric 3 – Cut 40 – 2-7/8″ squares. cut these on the diagonal once so you get 2 triangles from each square or a total of 80 triangles.
Sew the Fabric 4 triangles to opposite sides of the Fabric 6 square. Press, and sew the fabric 4 triangle to the remaining sides. Press and then do the same thing using Fabric 3 triangles.
