Ready for Clue Three? I am, so here we go!
I hope your bobbins are wound and you have a sharp blade in that rotary cutter!! We will be cutting and sewing each clue, I will let you know which fabric we are working with, remember: measure twice, cut once! Also, these instructions are for the lap size. Just a hint, the larger the quilt, the better the pattern. I can make any bed size instructions available, in the time being, you could make more of each unit to start. We’re taking it easy with this clue—let’s get started! Finished size (with a small border) is approximately 56 x 68 inches. Look back to the fabric requirements for the bed sizes I have ready for you.
Cut (4) 4-1/4” strips, sub cut to (20) 4-1/4” squares. These squares will be cut on the diagonal twice to form 80 quarter square triangles. OR, you can use 2-3/4” strips and your easy angle to cut the desired 80 triangles. If using the 2-3/4” strip and easy angle, you may want to mirror image these to make it easier to sew them together.
Cut (3) x 2-5/8” strips, sub cut to (40) 2-5/8” squares.
We will be making a larger triangle from these three pieces. Using your light triangles, sew a triangle to adjacent sides of the medium square.
Here’s what your final units for this clue will look like.
Be sure you take a look back at Clue #2 whenever you are ready. Clue #4 will appear in two weeks on June 1st!
