Foothills Mystery Quilt - November Instructions

Welcome to the November instructions for the Foothills Mystery Quilt-a-long! The instructions for previous months can be found in the Foothills Mystery Quilt tab above.  The monthly instructions will be posted on the first Thursday of each month.

** In addition to the flicker group Meadow Mist Designs, we have a hashtag.  When you post pictures on instragram please use #FoothillsMystery so that everyone can see your progress :)

And now onto November's instructions, we will be making 12 Diamond Blocks (12½” x 12½”) using some of the HSTs from September and the Square in a Square blocks from October.

Diamond Blocks
Using 96 HST units (3½” x 3½”), 12 Square in a Square (SiaS) units (6½” x 6½”), and 48 fabric set B squares (3½” x 3½”), form 12 diamond blocks.

A. Sew 96 HST units into 48 double HST units (3½” x 6½”).

B.  Using 1 SiaS unit, 4 double HST units, and 4 fabric set B squares, arrange as shown below.

C.  Sew units into rows, pressing seams open.

D.  Sew rows together to form blocks, pressing seams open.  Repeat to form a total of 12 diamond blocks (12½” x 12½”).

Thanks so much for quilting along with me!
