Mystery Quilt 2014 - Part 3 Comes Next Week!
The Mystery Quilt 2014 - Part 3 will be posted next Wednesday, April 2nd. The mystery of the quilt’s design will be unveiled and quilt along members will discover what they have been making! There will be a Photo Page up and running by the time Part 3 is posted so finished quilt photos can go there and not on the Comment Wall. That way, those who are not finished can continue to work without knowing the final design.
Mystery Quilt 2014 - Conclusion
The last quilt along blog posting will be on Wednesday, April 9th. However, people will still be able to join and add comments/questions for many months after that.
I am confused about which way to press the seams on the Part 2, step 6...the notes say to press the HST seam away from the background fabric...wouldn't that be to press towards the F, rather than press towards the J???
I just noticed this group but every time I try to download Part 2 I get Part 1 again. Anyone else have this problem?
Hi Florence -Were able to download Part 2 okay yet? When I click on either of the Part 2 PDF links above it seems to work. You can also try the Quick Links section on the Mystery Quilt 2014 group page. Please let me know if you continue to have a problem.
OK, I deleted my download for Part 1 then I was able to get it. Thank you.
Sorry I missed your question here... Yes, you press to F which is the background. The Notes say that in Part 1, Step 5 to press away from the background but in Part 2, Step 6 to press to the background so the HSTs will nest later. I hesitated to say the lighter fabric in case someone switched the colors values and had dark background. Hope you were able to figure it out okay.
