Mystery Step 5
You've gotten all caught up and are anxiously awaiting this next step aren't you? I have gotten several emails and comments asking about this step, so here goes...
If you are using one fabric for your background you will simply cut rectangles from your background fabric. This will be the last time we use this fabric. You will cut 5" x 9 1/2" rectangles. For the smaller size quilt you will need 31, and if you are making the larger version you will need 60.
If you are using scrappy fabrics for your background you have a little bit more work to do, but it's not hard! You will be making strip units that will measure 5" x 9 1/2" when you are done. For the smaller size quilt you will need 31 units, and if you are making the larger version you will need 60 units. This is how you will cut and assemble each unit:
Cut 2" x 9 1/2" strips from your background fabrics. (93 for the small quilt, 180 for the large)
Sew these strips together lengthwise in sets of 3 to make your units.
This completes all the steps needed using your background fabrics! We're are getting very close to assembly! Now get busy, so you are ready for the next step!
Enjoy every stitch!
