Love my Scraps Mystery Quilt I = Block A. Dimensions.

Love my Scraps Mystery Quit I - Color Pop Block A dimensions.
 
Your finished block A will be 10 1/2" x 10 1/2" and done in a quilt as you go method.
This set of instructions is for dimensions and sizes. Not on how to quilt as you go the block.
See the block instructions for assembly.

NOTE: WHEN I GIVE YOU A LENGTH FOR A STRIP - MEASURE YOUR SPACE FIRST BEFORE YOU CUT. WE EACH HAVE DIFFERENT SEAM ALLOWANCES.
1. You start  with a 6 1/2" square from your cut scraps.
2. You place a 3 1/2" square from your cut scraps on top of the 6 1/2" square.
Place  these in the center of a piece of batting. I cut my batting  14"x14" (next time I will make it smaller) Cut your backing fabric the same size as the batting (same here I will make it smaller next time maybe 12 1/2")
Place your backing fabric on the back right side facing away from the batting.
Decorative stitch  your 4 1/2" square to the 6 1/2" square. You have now quilted this to your block
3. Is a strip 2 1/5" x 6 /5" , this will get sewn onto the right side of the 6 1/2" block.
4. Is a strip 2 1/2" x 8 /5" and is sew on to the bottom .
5. Is a strip 2 1/2" x 9 ? and is sewn on the left side.
6. Is a strip 2 1/2" x 10 1/2" and is sewn on the top.

Please go to the instructions for working on Block A. This is just a reference for cutting blocks and strips.

There will be more blocks of varying styles but they will all measure 10 1/2" square.
And we will quilt as you go to out them together.
