Magnolia Mystery Quilt ++ Flower Units


Welcome to the November Instructions for the Magnolia Mystery Quilt, this month we are using some of our HST and half flying geese to make Flower Units.

The Magnolia Mystery Quilt contains instructions for both Lap and Queen sizes which are both included in this post:

Flower Units


If using pre-cuts for Fabric B:

  • For the layer cake slices/jelly roll strips/fat quarters that you cut 8 matching rectangles 2 1/2” x 4 1/2” from, use all 8 pieces in the full flower units.
  • For the layer cake slices/jelly roll strips/fat quarters that you cut 4 matching rectangles 2 1/2” x 4 1/2” from, use 2 of the pieces in a full flower unit, 1 piece in a left partial flower unit, and 1 piece in a right partial flower unit.



FULL FLOWER UNITS
Arrange and sew together the following fabric pieces and units as listed and shown below, pressing all seams open.  Each flower unit should measure 6 ½” x 6 ½” (lap) or 9 1/2” x 9 1/2” (queen).  Repeat to make a total of 32 full flower units.

1 right facing half geese unit
1 left facing half geese unit
2 HST units
2 Fabric C squares: 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” (lap), 3 1/2” x 3 1/2” (queen)
1 Fabric D square: 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” (lap), 3 1/2” x 3 1/2” (queen)




LEFT PARTIAL FLOWER UNITS
Arrange and sew together the following fabric pieces and units as listed and shown below, pressing all seams open.  Each left partial flower unit should measure 6 ½” x 6 ½” (lap) or 9 1/2” x 9 1/2” (queen).  Repeat to make a total of 4 left partial flower units.

1 left facing half geese unit
1 HST unit
2 Fabric C squares: 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” (lap), 3 1/2” x 3 1/2” (queen)

The left and right partial flower units are mirror images of each other so be sure to double check the layout of the fabric pieces.
