How’s your mystery going so far, are you caught up and ready for the next step? I really get a big kick out of seeing all the different color combinations, and choices for backgrounds. There are some new posts in the Flickr group with really interesting quarter-square triangle units, such diversity! I can hardly wait to tell you the rest of the steps so I can see the finishes of these wonderful quilts. But, I’ll just have to have patience, not my strong suit, LOL!
Match the 5″ background squares with an equal number of 5-inch scrap squares for your chosen size. Draw lines on the back of the lighter square on the diagonal.
I have found it easier to actually draw the sewing line 1/4-inch away from the center line (that I do not draw), so I draw 2 lines on each square.
If you are using another method, make as many of these units as you have 5-inch background squares in your chosen size cutting instructions. Chain stitch the units.
Cut apart and press to the darker side.
Now let’s Two-Step! Take the remaining 5″ color scraps, make two color HSTs. Pair up the squares with as much contrast as you can with color or value.
Cut apart and press to the darker side. Square all HST units to 4-1/2 inches.
