How much of each fabric would be needed for the smaller version?

I would go with half measurements just to be sure you have enough

 

Thanks Jen. I plan to make a smaller quilt, but will make all the blocks as described. Then I can make it any size I want and may have enough for a smaller quilt, maybe baby size. I'm off to the fabric store today. I have enough of dark and focus but need white on white. I have huge amounts of cream and tan. But my selection requires the light to be close to white.

By the way, I hope to meet up with fellow QCA member Sue, who has been traveling this summer. She's here in Bellingham. If we can make it work, we'll meet (where else) at our local quilt shop!

Someone may have already asked this but I can't read 125 posts even though would like to. Like others, I usually buy 1, 1.5, and 2 yards of each fabric at a time to add to my stash. I guess my quilt will be a little scrappy. I have loads of Batiks and precuts so I may wait til I see the pattern to decide what fabric to use. Also, guess I can add extra rows or border, depending, to make a king.

So very exciting!  I love these QCA Mystery Quilts!  Looking excitedly forward to participating in another one!  Time to dig through my stash to see if I can find fabrics that will work.  My New Year's Resolution for 2014 was to buy as little fabric as possible, and try to use up fabrics from my huge stash.  So far I'm doing good...LOL!

Shelley:
I can't bear to use only three fabrics on a quilt, so here is my scrappy stacks of civil war fabrics.   The pinks will be the accent.  If I run low, I will just toss in a few more fabrics.

Shelley I love your choices. I think your quilt will be lovely.

OK, those who want to make a smaller quilt can do it with either 8 of each block, or 6 of each block depending on the size you want....you'll need at least 2 1/4 yds. DARK, 1 1/4 yds. LIGHT and 1yd. ACCENT.....the people who want to do kingsize will need .....5 7/8 yds. DARK,  4 5/8 LIGHT and 2 5/8 yds ACCENT

Wow Jen!   You are really going above and beyond.   How nice for you to provide different size requirements!   I'll just cut and sew what you tell me too.   Thanks for the hard work everyone.   Ready for those directions, haha

Well I'll keep trying to print it right.  I'm wondering if a large print would work with this one or if I should do solids.

I'm a sucker for mystery quilts so I'm in. I'll be shopping my stash - no time to go to the store so I hope I have something appropriate.

DebbiCT:

Just a note on how I do it... I copy the instructions and paste them into Microsoft Word, then I can print and save them as a Word document.  It's the easiest method that I, personally have been able to come up with.  (Just thought I'd share in case it's something you wanna try for yourself too).

DebbiCT, you highlight the area of the instructions, copy and then paste into Word (or you could use any text type document). This way, I can save it and have it forever. Also, I can make notes right on the instruction page so I remember any special things or instructions.

I would take the second one because I absolutely love the middle fabric.  However, as mentioned, both are nice.

ALSO...I just got home so can't think.  I would make this out of my stash as well, if I have enough of one color.  Love the new lines for Fall but can't afford them.
