Mystery Quilt clue #2

Here is clue #2.

If you haven’t already started the Red Rooster Quilts Mystery Quilt, it’s not too late. Just pick up the January/February issue of The Ohio Country Register. Or you can get Clue #1 from our blog at You can call the store for a kit for $69.95.

Cut 4 – 1 ½” x width of fabric strips from Fabric B (or 1 from each of 4 different fabrics if making scrappy)
Cut 4– 1 ½” x width of fabric strips from Fabric C

Sew one Fabric B strip to one Fabric C strip along the long edge. Press toward the dark. You will have 4 strip sets.

Cut 84 – 1 ½” slices from the 4 strip sets. Sew two together to make a four-patch that is 2 ½” x 2 ½”. You will have 42 square four patch blocks.

From Fabric C:
Cut 2 – 4 ½” x width of fabric strips. Sub cut into 25 – 2 ½” x 4 ½” rectangles.
Cut 5 – 2 ½” squares from the remaining 4 ½” strip.

Make 5 blocks that look like the picture on the upper left (#1). Make 5 blocks that look like the picture on the upper right side (#2).
Put them in separate zip lock bags labeled block #1 & #2
Finished size will be 4 ½” x 6 ½” of #1. Finished size will be 6 ½” x 8 ½” of #2.
