The Summer Mystery has now finished and the instructions have been removed. However I have left the tutorial here for you as there are a lot of good tips and tricks in the last 10 posts – just use the category to find all posts. You can now download the full pattern as a working Quizzle from here.
Today we are going to start putting all those little bits and pieces together so get them all out and arrange in piles.
First we join a Fabric D small triangle to both ends of two sashing blocks. (the ones you can see in the middle here)
now the triangles are longer than the ends of the sashing blocks so you need to have the flat ends even - the point will hang over a bit
your stitching line should pass through the junction of the last two stitching lines
so that you get perfect points on the front
press the seam allowances towards the Fabric D triangles (green spot)
Next you need to join the following
a triangle, sashing block, Fabric D square, sashing block, square, sashing block, triangle. Do this twice to make two strips. Press all seams towards the Fabric D pieces.
Next step is to join the following
a Fabric A quarter square triangle,(the larger of your triangles) sashing block, floral block, sashing block, quarter square triangle. Do this twice. Press seams towards the triangles and floral blocks.
Lastly we join the following:
one of the smaller Fabric A triangles, sashing, floral,sashing, floral, sashing, floral, sashing, triangle. Do this just once. Press seams towards triangles and florals.
Okay, you have probably worked out now that you have a quilt in strips. We will finish this bit next time!
