A Quiltville Mystery Quilt!

I hope everyone is ready to sew! You sure sound anxious by the emails I've received and the chatter on the Quiltvillechat list! Believe me, I'm anxious to share this quilt with you! It has been a fun one to design and I love the results! Are you ready to SEW?! Let's GO!

Step 1:

The intro page told you we are going to need 2" strips in light and dark! Start sewing your light strips to your dark strips in any order, any arrangement. This is the first very scrappy part.

We are making...TADA!! 150 4-patches! Does that sound a bit daunting?

It really does go fast, and you can do them a batch at a time until you have enough. Match 2" light strips with 2" dark toned strips with right sides together. If one strip was shorter than the other, I just matched a new strip up to the long one and kept sewing in one continuous chain until I had about a mile of strips piled behind my machine! Trim between the pairs and take them to the ironing board. Press the seam allowance towards the darker fabric.
