Mystery Quilt - Clue 1: Cutting the Fabric

For those of us doing the Mystery Quilt project, it's time for the first "clue."  This month we will cut the fabric to get ready for sewing.  Cut the fabric as follows:


First Cut   5 strips 6 ½ X 40”

From those strips cut  30 squares 6 ½ X 6 ½”


First Cut  4 strips 2 ½ X 40”

  and 4 strips 6 ½ X 40”

From the strips cut  60 squares 2 ½ X 2 ½”

  and 60 rectangles 2 ½ X 6 ½”


First Cut  4 strips 2 ½ X 40”

  4 strips 6 ½ X 40”

From the strips cut  60 squares 2 ½ X 2 ½”

  60 rectangles 2 ½ X 6 ½”

Our next meet-up is scheduled for June 26 at 6:00 pm.  I am checking with the Donelson Branch of the Nashville Public Library to reserve a room for our meetings.  We can meet for a while and chat and share and then those who want to can head out to dinner together.  (Having a regular meeting room will give us space to have lessons and learn new tricks from each other.)

Hope you can all make it to the next Meet-Up!!  I'll have the next Clue available to hand out that night!!  Even if you've decided not to participate in the Mystery Quilt, we sincerely hope you will come and hang out with us anyway!!

      So I just now saw this. Sorry!! It's been kind-of crazy at work and home the last few weeks. The meet-up is on the FOURTH Thursday of the month, not the third. So, it's NEXT Thursday July 24.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
