Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
MQN Mystery Qult - Step 4 Piecing Instructions

Here is the next step in the series on a mystery quilt.

Clue to the pattern:

The woman from the previous clue was the editor of a magazine that was important for providing women’s fashion and etiquette of the day.

Step 4 Piecing Instructions:

We are now moving on to piecing together two rows of the block.

1)      Go back to Clue #2 baggie and take out the light 2-1/2 inch squares.

2)      Go to Clue #4 baggie and take out the pieced HST sections that look like flying geese. These sections have a cool color triangle in the center.

3)      Place a light 2-1/2 inch square on either side of the geese section and stitch. Complete this process with all of the light squares and cool color #1 triangle sections.

4)      Press seams toward the light squares. This is the first completed row of the block.

5)      Go back to Clue #1 baggie and take out the pieced light and dark 2-1/2 inch square sections.

6)      Go to Clue #3 baggie and take out the pieced HST sections that look like flying geese. These are sections with a warm color triangle in the center and two different cool colors on the sides. Choose the warm color triangle sections with the cool color #2 triangle sections. Place the cool color #1 triangle sections back into the Clue baggie #3.

7)      Place a dark/light section on either side of the HST geese section, with the light square on the outside and the dark square next to the HST section; stitch. Complete this process with all of the light/dark sections and cool color #2 sections.

8)      Press seams toward the dark squares. This is the second completed row of the block.

Have you been researching the clues to find out the quilt block pattern? The next steps will put together the final row of the block, so that the pattern will emerge. I’m looking forward to the reveal.

 

Happy Stitching!
