I'm in the Mystery block club. It's here: http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2012/11/easy-street-monday-link-up-1.html
It's called Easy Street! This is what I have to do:
Cut 2” strips from background and whatever you are using as the grey.
My backgrounds are the black-on-white prints. I can’t tell you how many
strips to cut because scrap lengths vary. You will need enough strip
sets to cut 384 2” twosie sub-cuts. Match the twosies together and sew 192 4-patch units. As you are
sewing, pay close attention to how these are feeding through the
machine. I send my pairs through all with the DARK SQUARE leading. This
keeps the seam on the bottom going "with" the feed-dogs instead of
"against" them so I don't get flipped seams from underneath. It also
helps keep that opposing seam junction nice and tight as I sew over it.
Why be consistent? So we can pinwheel the seams on the back side all in
the SAME DIRECTION instead of having some of them go clockwise, and
some go counter clockwise…
Okay, that's step one. OMG! 192 4-PATCH UNITS!!! That is a lot to do just for the first step. I need to find enough fabric to do this. She is using grey and white. I need to buy some more grey.
Off I go treasure hunting...
