Mystery Monday: #3, Part 2

Hi! This is Part Three of our latest mystery quilt. I’m writing this rather late on Monday night. I actually started this early this morning but I got sidetracked while prepping the pictures. I spent the rest of the day actually going through and sorting pictures. I am only just now sitting down with the intent of NOT getting sidetracked but actually finishing this post.

I did do this week, next week and the week after that. Parts 3, 4 and 5 are being written tonight. I am going on vacation and can’t promise that I’ll be able to post a reminder on Facebook. I suggest signing up with email to receive updates when I post. By doing this, when my scheduled post comes out, you’ll be notified, even if I can’t post a reminder on Facebook. Parts 4 and 5 will be auto-released over the next two Mondays.

Today’s block needs are listed below. Keep in mind, if you are doing the LARGE quilt with me, you will double what is listed to make two blocks. If you are doing the small quilt, you’ll only need the following one time to make one block. These are all pieces we pick up out of our pile cut a few weeks back.

Materials List:

  • Red #1: (2) 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″
  • Red #2: (4) 6 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
  • White: (2) 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and (8) 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and (1) 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″
  • Blue: (4) 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″

Draw a diagonal line one time on each of the following fabrics. You will use these for creating HSTs, Flying Geese and the blue around the white.

  • White: (2) 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and (8) 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
  • Blue: (4) 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″

Using (2) Red #1 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and (2) White 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″, create the FOUR HSTs required for the four corners of this block. I am showing it doubled, to create two of the current block. Don’t forget to trim them after ironing them! This is very important for assembly of the block.

Take (4) Red #2 6 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and (8) White 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ to create FOUR Flying Geese.

Place these Flying Geese into the square as shown above.

The final step is to take the (1) White 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ and (4) Blue 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and sew the blue to the four corners of the white.

Place it inside the block being created and sew the entire thing together as shown above.

Blocks 1 and 2 are very similar but, by turning just the outside corners, it gives it a completely different look. Here, I don’t have the second block completely sewn together but I’m sure you see what I mean.

That’s it for now. Enjoy and we’ll get back together next week!
