QOV Mystery 23
                                                                            67" x 67"

                                     This is a 7 week (7 clues) Mystery
This is a very scrappy quilt.  You will need yardage for the background (cream), and a little yardage in red,  but the rest can be scrappy.  I have used Americana colors in my quilt, but you may choose to go with standard red, white, blue if desired.  A good assortment of FQ's, 1/4 yd cuts, or go shopping in your stash for this project.

Below are some examples of  suitable Americana fabrics:    (Think Civil War fabrics with deep reds, blues and golds)
Fabric & Cutting Requirements:  

This Mystery is different from many of my previous ones in that I'm going to have you do most of the cutting before the mystery begins.  Don't worry! There's only 3 basic sizes used in most of the quilt.

Cream....   3 3/4  yds          Cut the following squares, then set the rest aside

    (24)  6 1/2" squares
    (24)  2 1/2" squares
   (105)  3 1/2" squares - draw a diagonal line on wrong side

Red......   1/2 yd  (Do NOT cut this into squares - use other fabric for that!  Set this 1/2 yd aside for now)




2 1/2" squares      For a pleasing, scrappy look choose many different fabrics!

      (178)   Assorted reds  
      (238)   Assorted blues  (Draw a diagonal line on wrong side of 92)
        (53)   Assorted golds
