At the bottom of this post will be a link box. Please link up to your blog post or photo showing your project with all the clues so far completed. A drawing will be held on Thursday for the winner of a Stash Pack from Vicki’s Etsy shop. Thanks again, Vicki, for sponsoring this mystery and the gifts!
Your center should be made now.
Clue #4, Step 1:
Fabric 2 – Cut 4 – 2-1/2″ strips.
Cut two strips to 32-1/2″ and attach to the sides of the center. Cut two strips 36-1/2″ and attach to the top and bottom of the center. Your top should now measure 36-1/2″ x 36-1/2″.
Clue #4, Step 2:
This is the block we will be making for the pieced border, which is Border #2. The blocks will be 4″ finished or 4-1/2″ unfinished.
NOTE: If you use Electric Quilt and would rather paper piece these blocks, this is called “Economy Patch”. If you are cutting and piecing the traditional way, please follow these directions:
Fabric 6 – Cut 20 – 2-1/2″ squares.
Fabric 4 – Cut 20 – 3-1/2″ squares. Cut these on the diagonal twice so you get 4 triangles from each square or a total of 80 triangles.
Fabric 3 – Cut 40 – 2-7/8″ squares. cut these on the diagonal once so you get 2 triangles from each square or a total of 80 triangles.
Sew the Fabric 4 triangles to opposite sides of the Fabric 6 square. Press, and sew the fabric 4 triangle to the remaining sides. Press and then do the same thing using Fabric 3 triangles.
Happy April Fools Day to you!
Don’t let anyone fool you today! Its here the first day of April! Enjoy every bit of it. Sandi

Judy, I have my center done and it looks great to me.. I do not have a blog so I cannot show it off at this time.. Just want to say Thanks for all you do, not only for us that follow your blog, but for designing such beautiful quilts for the magazines that we buy.

All these stars look fabulous! I’m so excited to see all the quilts grow.
Catherine H says
There are some really great looking blocks here.
My first choice for fabric 5 is still an ongoing project–my first choice did not look that different from 4, and now my new choice is too light to show up in a photo–looks okay in person.
