It was a good clue when we told you the yellow/tequila fabric also represents sunshine in Key West!
As you can see, the blocks are arranged to create a burst of sunshine in Margaritaville.
The pink represents the coral reefs around the island.
The green represents the palm and pine trees growing on the beach in Key West.
Of course, the blue represents the sea and sky.
You can see how these all fit together when you assemble the quilt top in Clue #6.

Clue #6 also includes suggestions for making a larger variation of the Case of the Stranger in Margaritaville!
Love the lines. Quilt more!
If you have been following along, I hope you have detected that Inklingo makes everything obvious and simple, not mysterious. When you print the shapes on fabric, you can cut without templates or measuring and sew along the lines by hand or by machine. You don’t need Hercule Poirot’s powerful little gray cells!

We love it when you share photos of your fabrics and blocks on Facebook and in the Inklingo Yahoo Group. Thank you!
Tequila, sea, sand, palm trees and coral reefs. It’s been a great trip.
Agatha Christie brings together all the suspects and explains the solution to the mystery in the last chapter. I wish we could all meet in Key West for this final clue but listening to Jimmy Buffett is a nice consolation.
I hope you enjoyed our imaginary tropical trip in the sunshine. Please share your quilt tops on the Inklingo Facebook page!

Thank you, Dianne! I’m glad you are following along!
Linda this is fantastic. I fell behind with my sewing but I can’t wait to get back to this. Thank you so much for all you do.
Thank you, Whiskers! Sunshine and warm breezes are just what we need!
Thank you, Donna!
I’m listening to Jimmy right now as I look at the PDF with the reveal… it’s beautiful! I love what all the colors represent, and I can’t wait to see the fabric choices from the finished mystery from everyone on Facebook!
Great mystery! Congratulations!
I’m glad you enjoyed it, Carla! I would love to see your quilt top!
This was fun! I got my blocks done, and was playing with the layout, but i never solved the case! Even with asking for help from others we couldn’t solve the mystery. This is my first inklingo quilt, but not my last. Thank you.
Yes, you were close, Kelly! I’m glad you worked on the puzzle!
I was close. It looks great! Thanks for doing this.
Not having all my blocks finished, I played with the paper ones. Twist and turn, I got pieces and parts right, but the mystery was yours. With the wind howling and yowling today, with intermittent rain, Margaritaville is the place to be! Can’t wait to finish it.
Thank you, Cathi!
It’s absolutely beautiful, Linda! I can’t wait to start stitching the rows together!
