Are you ready for the next step in the Scrap Dance Mystery Two-Step? I know I am!! Sometimes it seems like it is so long between steps! But from the comments, I think that is a good thing so you can work it in around other things and still have some mystery fun while making a dent in the scrap bins.
OK, then! Without further ado, here is the April Two-Step!
First, divide the total number of 4-1/2 inch scrappy squares into two equal number piles. If you are making the Queen size, you’ll have an uneven number of squares, put the extra one on the first pile.
Match up those squares with the bar units as shown in the picture below. Make sure your background on this unit is touching the center square. The scrappy bars should be on the outside. You’ll use half your bar units for this step, (just over half for Queen). Press toward the center square.
Now, Two Step! With the remaining 4-1/2-inch squares, use two QST units to make the unit below. Be sure that your scrappy QST touches the center square. The background QSTs should be oriented north-south. This will use up half of your QSTs. Press toward the center square.

Don’t be tempted to guess what is next, LOL, it can go together a number of different ways, and only one of those is right. We’d all love to see your progress as you go forward, so upload your pictures to the Flickr group, and be sure they are public so we can share them. The group url is https://www.flickr.com/groups/scrapdancemystery2015/ – and I look forward to seeing all your units as they are done.
Are you just now finding the mystery? You can catch up quickly as there are only four months published. We will finish in July, then have more shares in August as the quilts are finished. So, come join in! Just click on Scrap Dance Mystery Two-Step to get started. Each step is linked to the one that came after, and all have downloads to print out for reference in the sewing room.
How’s your Two Step coming along?
