Surprise! The fifth step is coming a bit early this week as I have something to attend to today. I'm sure none of you will be complaining that the step came early in the afternoon! As with every step, a Word document and PDF file can be downloaded containing the instructions for this step.

Step 5 - Four Patch Block Assembly

 

Lay out 4 Two-Color Four Patch Units, 4 Three-Color Four Patch Units, and 8 (3-1/2”) squares. Join into rows; join rows to complete 1 Four Patch Block. Make 17 Four Patch Blocks.

 

 

Enjoy!

QCA Rachel

Yeah!!  and I thought I was really up a creek - 3 of my 4 sewing machines are not working properly so need to go into the shop and then took one yesterday to church for  quilting bee and then couldn't find the cord when I set it back up at home.  looking everywhere and 2 of the ladies looked thru their stuff as well.

well, while printing out these instructions, I thought I'll look thru my car one more time and lo and behold, I find it laying on the garage floor, right outside the door into the house from the garage. Hadn't thought to look there.  

WOOHOO, got a binding to sew on one quilt we tied yesterday, then these instructions and the instructions for the next step on QB's MQ.  

think I'll go sew!

How many to make for the smaller qults? I'm guessing 6 & 8 (same as the last step?)

No biggie....any extras I'll just work into in the back.

 

Thanks!

Rachel, could you clarify something for me please? Are quilts that don't follow the layout exactly, or use a unique border, still eligible to enter the contest? In the past, mystery quilts often had some individuality, especially in the borders.

Thanks.

Oh, I really like this block.  Can't wait to get it made up and play with it and the stars.  Thank you!

Looks good and now I should try and get all the 4 patches done so I can put these together too.  I'm guessing for the smaller quilt you will need one less than the stars that you made.  So if you made 8 blocks you'll need 7 of the block from step 5.  BUT I'm only guessing so wait for the powers that be to say.
