Celtic Solstice Mystery Clue Day!
I have been working on step #2 of Celtic Solstice mystery, but putzing along slowly due to feeling under the weather. Here are all my pieces cut, counted and ready to go. I debated using my Angler tool to piece these blocks, but decided to spend my resting time drawing lines instead.
I enjoy the meditative process of drawing the diagonal sewing line, which ensures accuracy. And I found that if I draw a second line 3/8" away from the diagonal line, I get a bonus half square triangle block that measures exactly 1.5"... yippee! You know how I love these little blocks!
Here are all the pieces just waiting for me to sew. You can see that I made one wrong unit, and then sewed one the correct way. Now I know what not to do! How long do you think it might take to sew 99 more of them??!
I think I will postpone peeking at step #3 until I finish step #2 - maybe!
