Easy Street Part 3

Just got done with finishing Easy Street Mystery, Part 3.  This week was fairly lite in the amount of prep and sewing you needed to do with the clue.  You only had to make 64 units, and we start adding the turquoise fabric in to the mix. 

You start with cutting from 2" strips, 64- 2" mirror image pairs totaling 128 black on white pieces.  These will be used as wing piece for the block.  You cut them the same as last week.  I already had a few pieces already cut from last weeks flying geese.

Next you need the purple fabric, cut them into 2" squares and you will need 64 of these squares also.  

The final units you need to cut is using the 3 1/2" strips. Cut them into 64 triangles similar to the white on black ones, but they don't have to have a mirror image pair.  


Start by sewing one side of the right side white on black units on to the 2" squares. When they are all sewn just press open lightly, then you can sew on the left side wing units, and press open lightly also.  They open up to be 64 triangles.

Now you can take the units you just made and sew them to the turquoise triangles that you cut earlier.  Once they are all sewn press towards to the turquoise triangle.  This leaves you 64- 3 1/2" square. 

Like I said earlier, this was pretty easy and it only took me a couple hours to complete.  Kind of excited on how this all is turning out.

    On the other hand I hate to see the mystery end.
