Nine-Patch Mystery Quilt

Spoiler Alert if you are participating in the LFQG 9-Patch Mystery Quilt!
Step one: buy 2 light and dark fabrics. I bought these last year in Elk Rapids.

Step 2: make lots of these, squares, rail fence, hour glass, half square triangles

Step 3: make 20x 9-patches in the designated colour for the month and trade with the other participants. We did this at our guild meeting each month.

Step 4: Now start putting them together in this formation:

 and more strips according to the diagram:

Step 5: arrange in a pleasing fashion:

Step 6: sew together...ok not quite there yet! still having fun arranging them in a pleasing fashion!

I think I have kept it sufficiently vague as I do not have the right to publish the instructions for this mystery quilt, but if you think your guild might want to try this mystery quilt contact Cathy at Eagles Wings Quilts.  It was a lot of fun, quite a bit of work as completed it will make a full size quilt!
