We’re over half way through the Project QUILTING Mystery Quilt Along! Have you figured out what this is going to be yet? I’m guessing not. This one’s a little sneakier than last year.
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. 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 M (bunnies):
(1) 4.5″ x 4.5″ square
(12) 2.5″ x 2.5″ squares
Fabric N (stripes):
(10) 2.5″ x 4.5″squares
Pair Fabric M and N to make six flying geese blocks using the method from clue 3.
Lay the flying geese, rectangles and square out in the way shown above.
Stitch the blocks together in a line to make the 5th block of this mystery quilt. The block should measure 8.5″ x 12.5″.
That is it for Clue #5! Be sure to post your progress on instagram and tag me @persimondreams and use the hashtag #PQMysteryQAL2
Tune in at noon, Wisconsin time tomorrow for Clue #6!
Miss the first clues?

This is so much fun! Thank you for hosting this Mystery.
Love this block too!

Any chance that you will give the yardage needed for Clue 7 with Clue 6? You said that 1 – 6 will be scrappy, but nothing about clue 7. I’m on my way out the door for a weekend trip and need to know what kind and how much fabric to take along!
