Four Star Square Mystery Quilt
a free mystery quilt pattern
So Far? In Part Five you started sewing groups of blocks together. In this Part you will put more blocks in groups:
1. You will be assembling a lot of pairs from combinations of 2 blocks:
The Fabric D (striped) block with corners attached and the Fabric C (plaid) with corners at opposite corners.
This Fabric D block
This Fabric C Block
You will sew these two blocks together
in two different orientations:
Your fabrics may vary from these,
but the orientations shown below
as A and B below will hold true for your blocks, too.
Make 12 pairs in the Orientation A.
Your corners should line up better than I show in this pair of blocks above. My graphics aren't drawn completely to scale. I suggest you put a pin in the center where the corners meet and then line up the edges to sew.
Make 16 pairs in Orientation B.
2. Now you will sew two other blocks
together and make four pairs (corners):
Now take the 4 "Corner Blocks" that look like this ( and have only one corner triangle):
And sew FOUR pairs with the Fabric D blocks used above in this
Put these 4 corner Blocks back into a baggie
labeled CORNER BLOCKS
3. Combining 3 pairs each of
Orientation A and B pairs from #1 above:
Pull out 3 each of Orientation A and Orientation B block pairs from #1 above.
Sew first into pairs of 1 A + 1 B so that they look like this:
You will now have 3 of the above A + B combinations.
Combine these 3 into a strip that looks like this:
Make three more of these
so you will have a total of 4 strips looking like the above in orientation.
