  1. Donna - March 26, 2014

    I am a little confussed on with fabrics we use for Part 2. Can anyone explain it to me? I must be missing something becasue if I used my Fabric numbers for the numbers on Part 2 I do not have enough fabric. Example Fabric 1 I have 1 yd and I used it on Part 1 but on Part 2 it calls for 1 1/4 yds of Fabric 1. and so on for the other fabrics.

  2. Ann - March 26, 2014

    Hi Donna, the yardages stayed the same for all the fabrics in Part 1 and Part 2. You finished cutting all of Fabric 1 in Part 1 and do not need to cut anymore. The grayed out text in the cutting instructions and the grayed out pieces on the Cutting Suggestions cutting diagram were from Part 1 and do not need to be cut again. Fabric 2 is 2-1/4 yds but you only need to cut Fs this time. Please let me know if this does not help and you have further questions. I will watch for your reply to see if you need more help.

    • Donna - March 26, 2014

      Thank you for your reply but I am still a little confussed. On Part 2 Directions Fabrics numbered 1-4 which fabrics are they from the original list of 1-6. You said we used all of Fabric 1 on Part one but on Part 2 Fabric marked as 1 says to cut 32 3-7/8 squares?

      • Ann - March 26, 2014

        Donna,in Part 1 you cut: Fabric 1 A & B; Fabric 2 C, D, & E;and Fabric 3 H. Those are finished and do not need to be cut again.

        In Part 2 you need to cut Fabric 2 F, Fabric 3 J, Fabric 4 K & L, Fabric 5 M and Fabric 6 Binding.

        There will very little to cut in Part 3.

        Hopefully this helps – You may benefit from following along as part of Mystery Quilt 2014 Quilt Along on Quilt with us (links above in blog posting). The members of the group are very supportive, I answer questions there, and people are starting to post photos.

        • Donna - March 26, 2014

          I am sorry to be a pain however, (and I will follow along with the Quilt Along) on Part 2 Directions Number 1 calls for 32 3-7/8 squares which I have not cut yet and were not in Part 1 what fabric is this? And on fabric number 2 I need 8 6-1/2 squares same thing what fabric? Maybe I am over thinking this but I just cannot figure it out, I am sorry.

          • Ann - March 26, 2014

            Donna, there are no 3-7/8″ squares anywhere in this pattern. It may be that you are rereading Part 1 again where there were thirty-two 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ units of Fabric 2.

            In Part 2, on page 4, Step 7 there are instructions to fussy cut (optional) four 6-1/2″ squares and twelve 4-1/2″ squares…nowhere does it say eight squares.

            Please check that you are using Mystery Quilt 2014 Part 2 and start on Step 6 which provides an alternate method for making HSTs.

            I would like for you to follow along on Quilt with Us. That is where questions like these are answered by myself and other members. It is a very supportive group!

          • Donna - March 26, 2014

            I went back and reprinted the pdf and realized the first one that downloaded was the wrong pattern, it was Part 2 Directions but not for the quilt. I am so sorry for all the confussion, I now have the right document and am good to go. Again sorry and thank you very much for your patience with me.

          • Ann - March 26, 2014

            Oh good! I figured something like that happened. Hope you enjoy Part 2 and the quilt along group.

  3. Bea - March 26, 2014

    Can’t wait to start clue2 waited a FEW hours this morning- guess you’re not east coast 😉

    • Ann - March 26, 2014

      Bea, sorry for the delay. I had set the blog to be posted at 6:00 am PST but started a new blog system and had a glitch. Hopefully you can see the blog posting just fine now. Enjoy!

  4. Nancy Latham - March 26, 2014

    I ready for part 2. Got all of part 1 done yesterday. I decided to use red/white and blues and a gold for a Quilt of Valor. That’s what I do for most of the mystery’s I do. Thanks for doing this for us.

  5. Janie Scoggin - March 26, 2014

    I too, like Donna, got the wrong directions this morning.. I wasted a quarter yard of fabric before I figured it out. I now have the right directions and am anxious to get started on the right track in the morning.

  6. Ann - March 27, 2014

    Welcome to Janie and Nancy!

    Janie, I am not sure how you and Donna could download the wrong directions. Would you please provide more information?

    • Janie Scoggin - March 28, 2014

      I do not know what I did wrong. I clicked on Part 2 and received instructions for part 2 of a different quilt. It also included a tutorial on making flying geese. It only had four fabrics.

  7. Meg - March 27, 2014

    I’m going to try this out and jump in at part 2. Looking forward to it!

  8. Ann - March 27, 2014

    Welcome Meg! It is not too late. Hope you enjoy it!

  9. Janie - March 28, 2014

    I have finished part 2 and can hardly wait for the final piece of the puzzle!

  10. Judy - March 31, 2014

    The link to Part 2 Notes isn’t working. I am unable to find this document

    • Judy - April 1, 2014

      Found it on the other site

  11. Ann - April 1, 2014

    Judy, thanks for letting me know. I “fixed” some things yesterday but looks like I caused another problem…okay now I think. Glad you found the notes on QWU.
