Mystery Step 7

I'm so excited to share with you this next step! We are putting things together and the mystery will be solved very soon! I know some of you may have already figured it out, and I want to thank each of you for you enthusiastic support of this little mystery. It's been so much fun so far, and I hope you are excited to be in the final stages!

Step 7

This step will require the units made in step 1, step 3 and step 6.
We will be sewing the blocks together on this step.
Each block will require four step 1 (four patches), one step 3 ( 3 1/2" square piece of fabric) and four step 6 (units made of two focus and one background fabrics)

Lay out the four patches in the corners making sure the accent fabric is in the outer most corner.
Lay out the fabric square in the center.
Lay out the step 6 units on the sides of the center piece.

If you are using all one fabric for your focus fabric your block will look like a star. If you are using scrappy or a contrasting fabric in the center, your block may look more like a flower. It is important that your four patches be turned exactly as shown in the photo. It will be important in the next step.

Smaller quilt: make 12 blocks
Larger quilt: make 25 blocks

I know this sounds like a lot of work, but really you are just sewing nine patches!
Enjoy every stitch!


**I will be away from my computer through the weekend, but will answer all questions as soon as I return on Monday!
