Back from my trip to Italy. Had a wonderful time but always good to be back although a bit of a cloud over our return is that my suitcase appears to have been left behind in London (lost?) and since it is 4 days now I am not that hopeful that I will get it back. Of course it has all my favorite summer clothes, shoes, cosmetics and gifts for family.

Fabric that I managed to find was "interesting". All I can say from my minor knowledge is thank goodness I am not a quilter in Spain or Italy. Of course I probably wasn't looking in the right areas but what I saw was extremely expensive (Eur16 per meter seemed average, about $22) although saw some for as much as Eur80 per meter and it wasn't even very nice!

I am suffering withdrawal symptoms from not quilting for so long and can't wait to get started on the next part of the MQ2013!

Jill - Awesome! I'm glad it worked out for you. Enjoy your trip!

Of course you were right Bonny. Made the blocks today and everything went fine. Lots of trimming but I don't mind, hopefully that helped to make them more accurate. I haven't put the stars together yet and I doubt whether I will be able to before we leave on Thursday. But I will be looking forward to starting Part 3 when I get back. Happy Quilting everyone.

Well, Diane in Indiana, I can relate to sidetracked!  Unfortunately, I didn't get sidetracked in the sewing room.  However, I managed to get 2 MQ completely cut out, so they are in neat marked stacks waiting to go under the needle!  I'm hoping to get to them for an hour or so today after I catch up a bit on errands.  Will try to post some pictures later in the week.

I got a little sidetracked this week. I was zooming right along, and suddenly decided I had to finish some other projects. Go figure, the life of a quilter! Well I did finish two other projects and now I'm back to the mystery quilt! I have all the blocks assembled and I laid them out to look at. this quilt is going to be awesome! How is everyone else doing? I haven't seen too many pictures lately.

OK thanks Bonny - I so appreciate you taking the time to get me out of this fix. I don't really see how it will work but I will try it tomorrow on one and I am sure it will become clearer once I see what I end up with. It seemed at first glance that if I put the two 4" squares on top of the 7 1/4" square I ended up with too much seam allowance in the center but maybe that is what I will have to trim. 

Comment by Bonny Peters on May 12, 2014 at 6:20pm

Jill - The 7 1/4" is the right size for the block. You may need to trim the edges of your blocks when you get done so that they are 3-1/2" x 6-1/2". The extra 1/8" may or may not be there to trim. It depends on how your seams were sewn.

Hope this helps. The bottom line is that you should be fine and not need to recut any pieces but you may need to trim some.

Help....I have made an error. I decided to do what Ann suggested and cut my Part 2 squares 4" instead of 3 7/8", thinking to trim them later. However, I forgot that I would have to increase the size of the 7 1/4" block as well. Should I re-cut the 7 1/4' block and to what size? I can't bear the thought of trimming two sides of 32 blocks by 1/8". Any suggestions most gratefully received! Thanks

Hi Jody,

Thanks so much for the tip. I found it amongst the discussion under the Perfect Points Quilt-along so you were right.

Jill I think this is what you are talking about I think this link will work but if not I found it on the mystery quilt 2014 under quick links pdf.
