    HI, Although this is a log cabin using 2 1/2 inch strips and the construction is fairly basic, it becomes a little bit more complicated when you mix up the color placements. This one you will also have to follow the construction directions 100% or the quilt will not turn out as designed. The quilt is also set on point. Setting on point is easy and if you have never done it before, I will walk you through the steps and when you are done, you will say "why was I so scared of setting on point?" LOL

    I would rate this quilt at a very confident beginner. As long as you can follow the placement of the fabrics, you should be fine.

    This is not your mothers log cabin by any means!!

    ** DESIGNER UPDATE **
    I will be putting updates as I construct this quilt. As you read in the opening instructions, this is an UNTESTED pattern put together quickly so we would have something to do as a Mystery on SBS.

    As I am cutting, I am finding that my calculations are off by 2 strips. I just cut the background and had used the exact number listed. (9) Remember to start cutting your pieces from the strips from the SALVAGE edge because the left over FOLD will need to be opened, pressed and then trimmed to complete the piece count. I cut in this order, 6 1/2, 8 1/2, 4 1/2 and used the remaining fabric from the 8 1/2 cut and the folds from the 6 1/2 to complete the count for the 4 1/2. (I don't like to waste fabric at $12/yard!)
    ** BUT **I forgot to cut two (2) strips for step 1a. So, if you would, add an additional 2 strips to your count for the background and 1 for the other two colors. We will still fine on yardage, I gave you more for just this oversite.

    ** DESIGNER UPDATE **There are a total of 22 blocks in this quilt, the instructions say to cut the sewn strips into 30 pieces. Now how I came up with 30 is beyond me! IF you have not sewn and cut in clue 1a, WAIT, give me time to test out the blocks and give you an exact count on centers we need.....Guess this is what I get for trying to do these calculations in a boring meeting and then doing the instructions on a Sunday evening.. forgive me and bear with me. Everything will be fixed by the time you get to Clue #2 (I HOPE!)

    **** DESIGNER UPDATE *****

    If you have printed out clue #1, TRASH IT!

    If you have not started to cut - DON'T CUT YET!

    Check in with me later - - - - -

    I may still have hair by then, but who knows, maybe not!!

    yep you do need time to test your patterns if you have not done them before. hang in there and i can send you a virtual tube of super glue if you like.

    i decided that i would designate this quilt my super bowl sunday quilt project and use a 10-pc fat quarter pack and white muslin all from my stash. i know i can get this done in one day. this soon to be completed top will be another tick mark off my quilt to do list.

    Oh, It's my fault for trying to rush this. Good note is, I did block one and they came out square and at the correct measurements, so at least I can cut and sew straight! LOL

    I took down Clue #1 to make corrections, so if you have printed or saved it, delete it. It will be back up in a couple of hours all corrected as I am almost finished putting the blocks together. I will make a final count of everything, correct the Clue and then re-post.

    We are starting at 8am MST on 2/5/2012

    Wow, lots of people answer to the name of Fabric! LOL

    Sharon, Indiana has 2 time zones, so I am not sure where you fall. Check out this link and it should tell you for sure. http://www.timetemperature.com/tzus/time_zone.shtml

    Ok, I have created all of the blocks and redone the cutting requirements to be just what is needed and nothing more.

    Clue #1 has been corrected and re-posted in both .doc and .pdf format. The version that you should have will have a time stamp uploaded at 4:39/4:40

    Fabriclovr,
    you are doing a wonderful job under a very short time frame. Don't be hard on yourself - you have stepped up to the plate to help others. I have never done anything like this before. It sounds like a lot of fun and you are doing this for us. I don't think anyone was trying to intrude on your design/instructions. I know I was trying to help a board member to be able to access the document. I do apologize for this. I had no idea! Thank you for doing this.

    Hugs and stress free quilting!!

    If you click on Thread Tools on the right hand side, above the first post, you will see several options in a popup box. Click on Subscribe to this Thread. Then you will be taken to a page where you can choose which kind notification you want by clicking on Notification Type. I choose Instant email Notification for the few threads that I follow. Be sure to click on Add Subscription after you have made your choice. You can also place the URL in a folder, but I prefer the notification by email.

    I checked out the Quiltbug Super Bowl Mystery out of curiosity. A couple of things needed are 4 3/4" squares and 2 packages of fusible web. I am not into doing a quilt with this much fusible web, but some people might be interested.
