Scrap Dance Mystery Pachanga Step 7

Here we are again!! The seventh clue in our mystery quilt along is here!

I hope this doesn’t bring any tears, but we do need to make a few more HSTs. Using your 4-inch scrappy squares, pair with the 4-inch background squares. Mark diagonal lines on the backside of the lighter of the two squares 1/4-inch away from the center.

Sew on those lines, cut through the center, and press.

Square up to 3-1/2-inches.

Sew all you have for the size you are making. See my post on Chain Piecing HSTs for more detailed instructions.

Here’s your pdf – Pachanga Step 7. Have fun!!

    Tears and screams of frustration. You do not want to hear what I am screaming in frustration.I am definitely HST challenged and didn’t realize that it was deeply hidden in my brain. I am talking DEEPLY hidden. But I hope to live long enough to overcome the problem, or die trying! Right now I am working hard to quilt a stack of tops that is becoming frightening. Stay tuned…

    I’m the opposite – the more I make the worse I get! Spent an entire evening “truing up” and redoing a few HST. This was not very good fabric so I’ll blame too much steam from the iron skewing the square. Still the technique you taught was spot on for ease and simplicity. Spring is here – rain, rain and more rain – tulips are blooming but no one is going out to enjoy them!
    Thanks for this pattern, I’m catching up – slowly.
