Mystery Quilt 2020 - Clue 6

This is it! I’d ask for a drum roll, but, to be honest, I’m not showing the complete picture until we get through these last clues. Today, we will connect the four sections to make a block, and then sew together the blocks into the finished top. So without further ado, let’s get started.


The Block


1. Sew Section 2 to the right side of Section 1 with right sides together.


2. Press the seams towards Section 2.


BEFORE


AFTER


3. Sew Section 3 below the Section 1 and Section 2 unit with right sides together, pressing the seams toward the Section 1 and Section 2 unit.


BEFORE


AFTER


4. Sew Section 4 below Section 3 with right sides together. Press the seams toward Section 3.


BEFORE


AFTER


4. Trim if necessary to 12 ½” x 12 ½”.


5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 until you have 36 blocks.


The Pattern Block


You have probably gotten a pretty good idea of what this will look like now, and this will confirm your suspicions.


1. Sew the Blocks in pairs so that Fabric 4 is side-by-side in each pair. You will have 18 pairs when finished.


BEFORE


AFTER

2. Sew the pair’s together, again placing Fabric 4 side-by-side for your Pattern Block. You will have nine blocks when finished.


BEFORE


AFTER


The Quilt Top


This is the moment of truth! Let’s continue…


Sew the Pattern Blocks together into three rows of three blocks, and Voila! You have it – your finished Mystery Quilt.



What’s left to do is building your quilt sandwich, basting, quilting and binding. If you aren’t sure how to complete these steps, check with a quilting buddy or google it on the internet.


So what do you think? Do you like the pattern? Do you like the fabrics you chose? Do you think it would look better, or just different in other fabrics? If you get a chance, please post pictures on our Facebook page.


Quilts can be displayed at our December meeting for a chance to win a “Viewer’s Choice” award!


And I want to give credit where credit is due. The pattern is from Stacey Day Quilts (https://staceyinstitches.wordpress.com/) and it is called Linked In, from Craftsy (http://www.craftsy.com) as a free pattern. I got the pattern from; Barb Bergquist who owns “A Block Away Quilt Shop”. A dedicated quilter with more than 25 years of experience, she is now actively sharing her love of quilting through the work in her shop.


I hope you enjoyed this journey to make a quilt which you don’t know what it will look like until you complete it.


Until we meet again, May you always be happy when quilting! Full clue schedule can be found in the "Mystery Quilt Project 2020" post.
