Sunset on the Sound Clue #5 & Twilight Chic Blog Hop

Clue #5?  Woohoo!  We are cruising right along with these clues.  I'm so thankful for all the fabulous feedback on the pictorials I've been giving on this blog, the directions in the downloads, and the manageability of this Sunset on the Sound Mystery Series.

After today's clue information, I have some exciting new about the Twilight Chic Blog Hop that I'm participating in next week.  Make sure to check out the announcement below!  There is a prize!

Before I get started on today's clue, if you are just joining us for the Sunset on the Sound Mystery Series, you can get details on Fabric Requirements or details on the series in my early blog posts: start with Join Me for my Mystery Blog Post.   Then go to Clue #1Blog Post,  Clue #2 Blog Post, Clue #3 Blog Post, and then Clue #4 Blog Post  Make sure you download all the clues, as I discovered today I have limitation of 6 items for download.  So, next week I will be removing Clue #1 to put up Clue #6.

Okay, Clue #5!  Corner Beams!

Clue #5 - We will be using our Color 1: Light (L1) and Color 3: Medium (M3) to make Corner Beam units!  You will need the Corner Beam tool for this week's clue.  If you do not have one, you can purchase it in my Etsy shop.

Sunset on the Sound ~ Clue #5
On the SOTS Facebook group this past week, someone mentioned that they needed to be extra  careful since there was more than one medium, which is true.  I remind them, that in the Overview download that I provided a swatch grid.  I do this with all my patterns.  You can find it on Page 3 of the Overview.  You can see it below.  The boxes below my colors, are meant for you to put your own swatches.  This will keep you organized, especially since you have no idea what this quilt will look like.  I hope that helps!

So, this week's I only have a few technique tips, more reminders, given that I gave the Corner Beam technique pictorial on Clue #1.  If you need a refresher on detailed Corner Beam instructions, check out Clue #1 Blog Post.

Key Corner Beam reminders:

In the classroom, I find my students "forget" the following items the most. So a quick refresher!

1Lay out your Corner Beam Side Triangle and Center Beam to form a Square.
When you lay out the Side Triangles and Center Beams they should form a Square

2. When trimming down, to be careful not to pull that Seam placement lines into the the Center Beam, if you do, it will short chain your 1/4" seam, which will cause you trauma later. 
Right Handed ~ Be careful to keep the Seam placement lines in the seams not in the Center Beam
Left Handed ~ Be careful to keep the Seam placement lines in the seams not in the Center Beam.
There you have it!  Pay attention to the instructions in the Download.  If you need a refresher, remember to check out Clue #1 Blog Post, that should help you.  
Perfect Corner Beams!
Since, this week's pictorial is so short, I wanted to share with you some really fabulous and inspiring ways the quilters and members of the SOTS Facebook group are sharing their completed clues in some really fun ways.  I love it!  Check out these fabric selections!

Now, mine with Clue #5!  Love it!

Remember you can join the SOTS Facebook group if you are a member of Facebook, subscribe to my mailing list/newsletter, participating in the Mystery Series, and answer the screening questions.
