Two Step QAL - Clues 1 & 2

Two Step Mystery Quilt Along
February 2017
In January, when I saw a mystery quilt along featuring scraps, I decided to participate. On Sunday, I pulled red and blue scraps out my scrap bins for 2.5, 4.5, 5, 6.5 inch pieces and astonishingly found enough for the Two Step Mystery quilt. Other than resizing the 6.5 inch squares into 5.75 inch squares, no fabric (other than the white background) required cutting.

January Clue #1
48 strip sets
(24 blue/white; 24 red/white)
Clue #1 was easy and fast with chain-stitching.

February Clue #2
making hour glass blocks
February's clue was more involved, requiring marking and careful stitching, cutting, and squaring.

February Clue #2
48 hour-glass blocks
Two Step Mystery Quilt Along
Clues #1 & 2 complete
It's not too late to join in the fun. Clues #1 and 2 can easily be completed before the next clue is released on the third Friday of March.

  1. Yikes! That's a lot of pieces (like the other one - lol). I looked up The Drift by the way (saw your comment on Kathy's blog) and I think I can watch it on my Tablet!!

  2. This is going to be so pretty in red, white and blue. I printed the PDF instructions for this so far, but may have to just enjoy your finish before I can actually get started.

  5. I've been watching the progress on Two Step but I am trying not to start new projects until I finish some UFOs. I should have another quilt bound soon. Then time to get another top quilted.

  6. What a great idea to make this a QOV and what a fun surprise that you were able to collect enough fabrics in the required sizes!
