Week 4, Sunbonnet Sleuth Mystery

Here is the 4th week clue for the Back To School Mystery. This week completes the blocks for the quilt. Next week you will get the scheme for the quilt layout so you can finish your quilt over the Labor Day weekend. I will be going to Art On The Square in old Marietta. It is a lovely weekend event and I plan to buy some new earrings from one of my favorite artist vendors. Who knows what else I might find.

1. Cut fifteen 5-1/2" x 10-1/2" rectangles of the purple fabric. Cut thirty 5-1/2" squares of the light blue or aqua background fabric.

2. Position one of the light 5-1/2" squares at one end of the purple rectangle with right sides together. Sew from corner to corner. Trim away excess fabric 1/4" from stitching line. Fold out triangle and press seam line.

3. Repeat step 2 in the opposite corner of the rectangle to make a flying geese unit. Make a total of 15 units. 

4. Using the units made in Week 3, join the fishy fins and the fish head together to complete the block.

5. Using a quarter for a template cut 15 round black eyes from felt or fabric, or use a quarter size button to add an eye to each of the blocks.

This completes week 4.
