PEI MQG Clue #5

I just completed the instructions for PEI MQG Clue #5. This one was a bit of a challenge for me. My first issue was that I had to select a new fabric #3 since I didn't have enough of the original fabric that I choose. Not because of the fabric instructions but because I selected all the fabrics from my stash except for the background fabric. So some of my pieces were not exactly FQs but what I thought was close enough.

So after choosing a new fabric #3, I started cutting. I only have a minimal amount left of it so I'm hoping the future clues will not use up too much of fabric #3. I did try and order what I think it is. See that small piece of fabric was originally purchased when I was looking to bulk up my orange fabrics in my stash. I think it is a grunge fabric but I didn't know for sure and which colour. So I ordered a couple online and I'm hoping one of the ones I ordered will be a match. Fingers Crossed!

The second issue for me is that I had never done these before. It was a bit sketchy at times but I did manage to make it through. I watched the video and thought ok that looks easy! Then I started trimming and I would get myself confused with all those lines and markings. After a while, I settled into a groove but there were still a few close calls!

But here they are:

Here is the link to Clue #5 if you would like to participate :) There's some pretty nice prizes too ;)

I'll be linking up my post in order to get my name in for this month's prize. But you don't need to have a blog to participate!

Go take a look, it's a lot of fun :)



  1. They look great. Learning how to make these is on my to-do list. I hope you end up with the right fabric.

  2. A technique I’ve not even attempted! Good for you! Keep up the amazing work!

  3. They look great!!! You can rest easy this fabric won't be used again..
