Hi Sandy,

 

Thank you for putting up with all the questions.  I don't know if you can (or will) answer this question.  I am getting ready to sew the 4 1/2" squares together.  I'm thinking that since I am planning to make this quilt large than the stated size, that I should leave the plain 4 1/2" squares off the specified rows until I see how these are used.  Would that be an intelligent guess or can you even say?  Thank you and thanks again for doing this.

 

 

Yes, Penny, wait until we reach the final step then you'll be able to figure out how many blocks you will need to add to these rows.

So, I just now have read that the original fabric requirements were incorrect.....and I just purchased the 2 yards and cut back when originally posted.  So, will there be any alternate recommendations for any others like myself that is unable to purchase additional fabric and is now finding myself short?  I was so excited for this mystery quilt but am a bit disappointed now.

Hi Lynn,

I'm sorry you did not see the corrected fabric requirements before you purchased material.  Since this is a scrappy quilt, you should be able to substitute a fabric that is similar in color to the backgroound fabric you have.  You could use the new fabric for the background squares needed for Step 3.  These squares are for a border and would lend a different but interesting twist on the original pattern.   Or, you could wait until you have the rest of the top completed then pick a different fabric that would give the border and the finished quilt a whole different look from the original pattern. 

I'm sorry about the confusion and look forward to seeing what you decide to do.

You will not need any more 4.5 background squares.

Are you girls trying to figure out the pattern?!    :-)

I don't think we will need more squares, but if you have extra's just hang on to them for now.
