MOSAIC MYSTERY A8 CLUE #2



Clue #2
For this clue you will need your Dark #1 – Red in my Example and your Light – White in mine


From your Dark #1 Cut
1 – 3 inch strip Width of Fabric ( WOF)
                Sub Cut into 12  - 3 inch squares
12 – 1 ¾ inch Strips
                Sub cut into: 12  1 ¾ x 8 inch strips
                                   :  24 1 ¾ x 9 ¼ inch strips
                                                                                                                : 12  1 3/4 x 10 ½ inch strips

I don’t like to waste fabric – so on 3 strips I cut the 4 - 8 inch strips – and the leftover was 10 ½ inches – but check your strip length to make the  best use of your fabrics.

From your Light Cut:
5 – 1 ¾ inch width of fabric strips
                Subcut into:     12  - 1 ¾ x 5 ½ inch strips
                                             24   - 1 ¾ inch x 4 ¼ inch strips
                                                12 – 1 ¾ inch by 3 inch strips
I started with the 5 ½ inch sizes and worked my way down. If you original wof strip is smaller you may need 6 strips

STEP 1:
Sew a 1 ¾ inch  x 3 inch Light strip to your 3 inch Dark #1 – Press
I press to the dark side




  


STEP #2

Sew a 1 ¾ inch x 4 inch Light to the piece you made in Step #1

Press

STEP #3
Sew 1 ¾ inch x 4 inch to  the  piece you made in Step 2.





















STEP #4  -
Sew the 1 ¾ inch by 5 ½ inch piece to the final edge:











And your final for this clue should look like:


Save the other red Strips – I promise you will need them soon!!

A pretty easy way to make a square in a square. Can't wait to see what's next.
