Gathering Mystery QAL – Week 2

Welcome back to our Gathering Mystery QAL! Every Friday for the next eleven weeks, I’ll be posting instructions to make a block or two that will come together into a brand new, never been seen before quilt pattern!

If you’re looking for more information about the QAL or would like a short-cut to the other posts in this series, you can visit our QAL Homepage here.


Last week, we took care of cutting out the pieces for our entire quilt top so that we can dive right into construction this week with these cut little twin blocks.

A few notes about this week’s clue:

  • This week’s clue is our first opportunity to practice that Stitch, Trim, and Flip method that I was singing the praise of a few weeks ago.
  • Yes – this week’s clue contains that dreaded phrase, “with a fabric pencil, draw a diagonal line …” – but don’t forget about that Sewing Without Pencil Lines post.

  • And lastly, remember that these two blocks are mirror images, so as you’re flying through chain piecing these babies, make sure that you switch sides halfway through. 

I think that about does it for this week’s post – progress photos can be shared over on instagram – make sure you use the hashtag #GatheringQAL and you tag me @CorasQuilts – or in our facebook QAL group.  See you next Friday!
