Mystery Monday: #3, Part 4

Good morning, again! By now, I am actually on vacation. I wrote this two weeks ahead of time to make sure it went out as scheduled instead of being late because I was away.

Originally, I put these together as all HSTs. Before I sewed it all together, I realized I was wrong – there are four Flying Geese units and eight HSTs. So, these instructions have been rewritten from the original intent.

Materials Needed (remember to double this block if you want to do the LARGE quilt):

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

Draw a single diagonal line on the back of the (4) Blue 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″, the (4) Red#2 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and (4) White 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ to use for creating the HSTs.

Create the following HSTs:

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

The (4) Red #1/White HSTs are in the four corners. The four blue HSTs are in the middle.

Take the (4) white 3 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ and the (4) Blue 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and attach the blues as shown.

Trim a quarter inch, iron open and then attach the (4) Red#2 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ as shown.

Trim a quarter inch past the sewn line, iron open.

Assemble the star. The (4) Red #1/White HSTs are in the four outer corners with the red facing the outside. For the small version, make one. For the large version, make two.

We are now going to assemble our first row. If you are making the large quilt, you’ll create two of this first row.

Set out your blocks: 1, 2, 3, 4 :on the design board. Cut from Red #1 (4) 12 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ strips for the small quilt, (8) for the large quilt to make two rows.

This picture shows my two rows as: 1, 2, 3, 4 and the row below it is 4, 3, 2, 1. Don’t worry. I was playing around. Sew the blocks together using the Red #1 strips.

From Red #1, cut/create (1) 54 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ strip for the bottom of the first row. Do this twice for the large quilt.

That’s it for this week. We’ve created our first four blocks and set them together in a row (in order!) with the sashing below it. As always, any questions, please let me know! I may not be around a computer but I can use my phone to help quite a bit.
