Mystery Quilt 2007 - Part 7

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3

Part 4 Part 5 Part 6

Ok, this week we are going to add on some bits to some of the strips we made before.

Grab up 1/2 of the triangle strips, and 25 of the "A" color pieces that you cut as 12 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch pieces. You will have 5 "A" color pieces leftover, and 25 of the triangle strips, put these aside, as you will need them later.

We are going to sew the A color piece to one side of the triangle strips - this is where you need to watch carefully to avoid chopping the points off your triangles! See the drawing below for the placement of the new bit onto your strip:

Carefully iron the new seam toward the "A" strip. Even though the color of the A strip is going to be likely lighter than the "C" pieces that are next to it, the amount of overlapping seam-allowances at the triangle points would make lumps if you iron the other direction. Just like in oatmeal or mashed potatoes, lumps are not a good thing.

Ok - next week more real life photos - for now we are done!!
