    Marcellelee, this is also my first Mystery Quilt. It's been really easy so far, so I hope it doesn't get more difficult as we get further into it.

    making 9-patch blocks

    Now is the time to decide how to use your E and F fabrics. Look at the square triangles you made from the directions posted on 10/13 and 10/21. Now, choose your color combinations from your E and F fabrics, or at this point you may decide you want to use something different for E and F.

    I wanted to get the most contrast from my E and F colors. As you can see from the top picture, I laid the black and white on the sq triangle blocks, and I liked the contrast of the white (now called E) with the A-B blocks, and the black (now called F) with the C-D blocks.

    Cut all strips 2-” wide, WOF. Use accurate ” seams to sew your strips together to make 6-” wide strip sets as shown in the pictures and described in next paragraphs. Adjust needle position if needed, strip sets must be 6-” wide. When pressing, press to the dark, turn over and make sure to press out any little “wrinkle” at the fold to make sure your strip set is 6-” wide

    Your blocks will measure 6-1/2" square when finished.

    FIRST:
    From A, cut 3 strips each 2-” wide. Cut one of these strips in half, and set one of these pieces aside.
    From E, cut three 2-” strips. Cut one of these strips in half.

    Make strip sets as shown in photos.

    Using the two half pieces of A and the half piece of F , put together A-E-A and sew to make a one half-sized strip set; cut into six 2-” wide strips.

    Sew together 2-” strips of E-A-E and sew one make a strip set. Cut your strips sets into 2-” wide segments. Cut 12 pieces 2-” wide. Sew into six 9-patch blocks as shown in photo.

    SECOND:
    From C, the darker of the C and D fabrics, cut 3 WOF strips each 2-” wide. Cut one of these strips in half, set one of the pieces aside.

    From F cut three WOF 2-” strips. Cut one of these strips in half.


    As shown in photo, put together the half strips of C-F-C and sew to make a strip set approx. 20-22“ long.
    Put together WOF pieces F-C-F and sew to make a strip set .
    Cut your strips sets into 2-” wide segments. Sew into six 9-patch blocks as shown

    I am confused now. what's wrong with pix #5. are the strips in the wrong order??? Are the lights supposed to be on each corner??? Maybe I'm making this more difficult, but the more I read, the more confused I get. Help please ??
