2014 NYE Mystery Quilt-A-Long – Pre-Sewing Instructions Correction

on 2014/12/29

Fabric Stack

Hello to One and All!

Slight clarification.  Part 2 Unit A 1.5″ x 5″ rectangle is a background rectangle.

Here’s the pre – mystery sewing directions. They are clues #1 & #2 of the mystery. So since I’ll be posting the mystery starting at 3am PT and there will be only 8 clues that we will be posted on NYE, the 10th clue (last clue) will be posted at 10am. This will allow for some nap time before the festivities. After clue #3 is posted on NYE, which will be out first clue of the day, I will post all of the designer’s instructions up to that point. Then I will post clue #4 at 4 am. Clue #5 at 5 and so on. I will also add an album to the groups for everyone to post their quilt pictures and on my blog.

Three Quilt Sizes
This quilt pattern is available in three sizes:
Comfort – 77” x 77”, Twin Quilt – 77” x 98” and Full Quilt – 98” x 98”

You should have 10 plastic bags labeled A through J with little bit of fabric in them. Now to begin the pre – mystery sewing.

Sewing instructions….

Make the following Units

These pieces are small.

Press to the dark.

I recommend finger pressing these small squares rather than pressing with the iron. Less distortion.

Plus you can finger press while you take a break.

It is critical that your seam is ¼ “.

Please sew a couple of each unit and make sure that it measures correctly before continuing.
