    I've begun! Better late than never, supposedly. We have had 4 deaths in 5 days. Only one relative, but friends and a son of a friend. This is helping me calm down and concentrate on something other than grimness. Right now, I'll just do a few of clue 1 and 2. Name:  IMG_4227.JPG

    Coopah: Very nice 4 patches.
    My deepest sympathies on your losses. I can't imagine losing 4 people in 5 days.

    Hope this is right. Nyquil Severe Cold & Flu makes it rather difficult to concentrate!

    Delphina, the 1st posting gives ideas for the fabrics you pick. If you go thru the posts, it kind of helps you decide on your fabrics. Then on Jan. 14th, post #143 is the 1st clue, and Jan. 21st, post #255 is the 2nd clue. Depending on how you have your settings set, those should be or close to the post numbers. Hope this helps.. Paintmejudy will answer any questions you have about fabrics or anything else. Have fun, these are so fun.

    I think the soft green would be pretty. If you chose the red, do you think it would register as your dark color?

    Before I post the clue, I want to make a comment on NanaKathy's post -- don't worry about your medium, one of your fabrics will sort of jump out at you and scream PICK ME next week. You will know exactly what will be perfect with your beautiful 4-patch. Ok, off to post the next clue, back in 5 minutes.

    Week 4

    So, I am going to change things up a bit. I was originally thinking this would end on 2/11 but it will end next week. And you will complete one major part of your quilt this week.

    Make 6 of the 6-1/2 blocks as shown on the right side of the top picture below. To do this, you will need 19 of the dark-light-dark strip set labeled as set A . And you will need 23 of the light-dark-light strip set labeled set B. The extra allows you to square up your strip set before cutting and to square off the last segment.

    For the A set, cut two 2 wide pieces of dark each measuring 19 long. Cut one piece of light measuring 3-1/2 wide and 19 long. Sew 2 wide pieces of dark to each side of the 3-1/2 light. Press to the dark. This strip set will measure 6-1/2 wide. Make sure the width is correct. Slice this set into 12 segments as shown; they will measure 2 wide by 6-1/2.

    For the B set, cut two 2 wide pieces of light each measuring 25 long. And one piece of the dark measuring 3-1/2 wide by 25 long. Sew and press as you did for the A set. Cut 6 of these segments that will be 3-1/2 wide by 6-1/2 long.

    From the light, cut 24 pieces that measure 3-1/2 by 6-1/2. Use these rectangles with your newly make 6-1/2 blocks and the 4-patch made in week 2, layout the pieces and sew as shown. For the strips with the two 4-patch and the 3-1/2 x 6-1/2 press the seams to the center. Assemble the middle section and press seams to the outside. When sewn together, press the seams toward the middle. You will have six 12-1/2 square blocks.

    So, we have fabric left over, a few odd ball pieces and lots to make to get to the 36 x 48 size! And it will all come together next week, I promise.

    Looking forward to seeing your new blocks!
