On Friday Bonnie released Part 5 of the Quiltville Orca Bay mystery, we're moving right along! This time we're to add half-square triangle "wings" to the white part of the black and neutral half-square triangle units we pieced in Part 3.
I'm using the Easy Angle ruler to make my cuts, I think I'm friends with it by now! I cut gobs and gobs of HST's from 2" black strips
neatness doesn't count, thank goodness!
I sewed a few units together to make sure my seams are behaving... they are
It feels really really good when my seams are right and things line up! Look at how straight that long edge is! As Barney Fife would say "See how Baby just lies in her cradle!?"
So, since Friday I've done about a dozen blocks, only 338 to go - progress is a good thing!
You can visit the Monday Mystery Link Up on the Quiltville blog to see what everybody else is doing, there are probably hundreds of people working on all parts of the mystery. Some people are using different color combinations than Bonnie used, there are some very pretty combinations to look at!
Sew forth and sew on
