Melodic Mystery ++ Flower Blocks


Let's Make Some Flower Blocks!  

Welcome to the December set of instructions for the Melodic Mystery Quilt!  December is a busy month for many people so I designed this month's piecing to be a little quicker.

The Melodic Mystery Quilt is a free quilt-along that runs from July 2022 through April 2023 with a set of directions revealed the first Thursday of every month. 

There is plenty of time to join in on the quilt along, instructions are published monthly so there is plenty of time to catch up! You can find all of the information about the Melodic Mystery, including schedule, past instructions, links to the Facebook group, sneak peek, and more in the Main Melodic Mystery Quilt Page.

2. Sew together the units and pieces into rows, pressing seams open or away from the fabric A squares.  Each row should measure 3 ½" x 9 ½".

3. Sew the rows together, pressing the seams open or towards the HST units, to make a flower block  9 ½" x 9 ½".

  5. I checked the first cutting instructions and there is no 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 squares cut from Fabric C. I don't have any yet the Flower Block instructions call for "C/bg HST units 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" . Can someone explain? Thank you
