Hey everyone! I just wanted to pop on quickly and say happy Labor Day to all of you! I hope your weekend has been full of family, laughter, and fun – and of course, good food! I know for many of you the highlight of the weekend is the release of Clue # 6 of my O’ Say Can You Sew Mystery Quilt-Along, so here we go! By this point, I’m sure I don’t need to remind you of your adoration for half-square triangles – I mean, what’s not to love? LOL! I know how much you’d appreciate cutting another thousand or two, but sadly you’ll have to make do with a much more simple task this month when it comes to this clue.
If you tuned into my LIVE show on STITCH with Lisa Bongean last Thursday you were lucky enough to get a quick sneak peek of Clue # 6 I showed you that all you need to do is simply cut 128 -3 1/2″ squares, which will then become part of 32 total 9″ blocks. Easy right!? Ready to make it happen? Click the button below to download your FREE printable PDF of Clue # 6 !
Considering how fast and easy Clue # 6 turned out to be, it’s almost like having an extra month to work on Clue #5 if you happen to be still tackling all those half-square triangles. You’re welcome! Along with the sneak peek, I also showed you my progress on Clue # 6 and gave you an idea of what my finished blocks are looking like. If you missed the show don’t worry, you can always watch the replay by clicking HERE!
Starting to run out of scraps? No problem! Jess put together some fat quarter bundles that will be perfect to supplement your stash. We have blues bundles of 12 fat quarters for $30.00 per bundle (that’s two FREE! – get those by clicking HERE!), and cream bundles of 12 fat quarters for $35.00, which you can grab by clicking the button below! We are currently no longer offering reds in these special OSCYS bundles due to low stock, but that shouldn’t be a problem if you’re all caught up. Starlight Gatherings is also blues and creams and would be perfect for upcoming clue #7. Hint-hint – It will be lots of creams again….with a little blue.
Remember, Clue # 6 is available as a FREE download now through Monday October 3rd, 2022. After that, it will be available to purchase on our website for $5.00. If you’re just joining me on this Quilt-Along there is still plenty of time to catch up! Links to all released clues are listed in the O’ Say Can You Sew Clue Archive, which can be found in the main menu at the top of this page. New clues are posted on the first Monday of every month. Once the current month’s clue is posted, the prior clue is no longer free but can be purchased for a small fee of $5.00. For more visual learners I will also be posting a video tutorial of each clue on my “STITCH with Lisa Bongean“ YouTube channel every month, so be sure to check that out as well! You can watch the Clue #6 tutorial by hitting the “STITCH“ button below!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend – especially now that you have Clue # 6 to stitch on! “Long” weekends go way too fast, don’t they? We’ll be back in the studio bright and early tomorrow for Shop Talk with Shelley at 9:30 a.m. CST. Shelley is back after welcoming her newest grand baby last week, so we’re excited to hear all about that. She’ll also be talking about any announcements we might have, the upcoming Great WI Quilt Show, and more – join us! Until then, have a great day and happy stitching everyone! ~Lisa
