Nana thank you so much for doing this. I am sure it is a big project. However, I am getting a little frustrated. The initial directions call for 378, 84 and 84 hst, them it was corrected to 336 and now a confirmation was made that it is 378. Would you mind making a formal post to confirm what we are to have?   Thanks so much again Nana

First, there was this correction:

Nana:

Everyone

After reading over the step 2 I realized that I left some of the instructions out or  assumed that you knew what I was doing.   So very sorry.

Take 168 background 3 7/8" squares and combine them with 168 3 7/8" fab #1 squares to make 336  3 1/2 HST squares.   You can do this by drawing a line and sewing on each side.  Or use any other method you prefer.

Take 42 3 7/8" background squares and combine with 42 fabric #2 squares.

Take 42 fabric #1 and combine with 42 Fabric #2 to form 84 HST squares.

I hope this helps....   also your HST squares should be 3 1/2" to finish at 3".

Nana:

 

THEN on a later post, this was said:

ls2116:

I don't want to get more confused on everyones math.  I'm not using tube method.  Is the ultimate goal of step 2 as written with the numbers 378, 84, 84?

Is, that is correct.

Nana, I'm with Penny. Which number is correct? Thanks so much for everything.

Nana,

You've made the post that this quilt can be made smaller, can it also be made larger?

thanks,  Lisa C.

Hi,  I am new to the Mystery Quilt.  I was going to use Thangles, so I am going to use the size that finishes up to a 3" square.  Is that correct?  Thanks!  Jan

Now that I have confused everyone.... including myself.   I have checked my math for the fourth or fifth time or maybe even the hundredth time.  The above posted update is correct.336 fab #1 / background     84   fab #2/ background     84  fab #1/ fab #2

I am so sorry that this got so confusing.   I think when I answered IS's question I was thinking about something else.   Again I am sorry for the mix up.   The above instructions are correct.

Yes it can be made larger.  You will just need to have more fabric and make more blocks.   Or add borders to increase the size.   I am going to do a pieced border to finish my top once I have some time to work on it.   Once I get the borders added my quilt will be approximately 98 x 110.

It wasn't your fault that I got confused and gave the wrong info.  Some days my brain is in a fog and this weekend it has been really bad.   Unfortunately brain fog is something I have to deal with .... it is part of the autoimmune issues that I have.  Most of the time I can answer questions without problems.   The last day or so hasn't been one of my better moments....LOL>

really hoping to keep mine smaller. I know of at least one border I want to do and I may have to add another to make it all work. But I really really want to keep it from becoming a monster. I want to be able to quilt and wrap it up quick and mail it to my sis for her b day. so wish me luck

Your fabric order looks right to me.  This is going to be really pretty.
