Three clues down, four clues to go for the Project QUILTING Mystery Quilt Along!
Each day for seven days I’ll be posting a new clue at noon CST. By the end of the week you’ll have all the clues needed to create a cute little mini quilt that will inspire you through the 11th season of Project QUILTING.
I have decided to choose fabrics that have somewhat of a “stripe” to them. They don’t have to be a super obvious stripes but I think once this is all put together you’ll understand why I chose to use these fabrics. Also, at this point try to choose fabrics that have approximately the same value as your first blocks. So if your first blocks are reading “light” then stick with that for this block, if they’re reading “dark” stick with that as well.
Fabric G (Tula striped dots): (2) 5.0″ x 5.0″
Fabric H (stripes): (2) 5.0″ x 5.0″squares
Fabric I (seahorses): (4) 2.5″ x 2.5″ squares
Fabric J (fish bone stripes): (4) 2.5″ x 2.5″ squares
Pair Fabric G and H to make four HST blocks using the method from clue 1. Trim to 4.5″ squares.
Draw a diagonal on the wrong side of Fabric I and Fabric J and place onto the HST blocks. Stitch right on the drawn line. Trim to the outside and press towards Fabric I and Fabric J.
Make four blocks.
Stitch the four blocks together in a line to make the 4th block of this mystery quilt. The block should measure 8.5″ x 8.5″.

Did anyone else have difficulty getting stripes go the same direction? Horizontal in the picture.
Mine is done … but my stripes aren’t right!
it’ll be fine! The stripe thing was just a suggestion – not a requirement!
