Celtic Solstice Part 4!

Today, was full of business work at the desk top, so very little sewing was done today.  But we did finally get Celtic Solstice Part 4 Finished this morning.  As I stated on Monday's Blog Post for Celtic Solstice Part 3, my husband volunteered to work on Part 4 of the mystery quilt. 

So I started him off with cutting 2" strips of orange and green.  Then I sewed all the orange and green together with right sides together, making 3-1/2" strips. Then press open to the green side.  Then we cut all the strips into 2".  

I then showed him how to match up the seams on the cut 2" strips to make the 4-patches.  He sewed the first one together and press open and the seams match up great and the measures matched to 3-1/2" x 3-1/2".  He did great for the first one.  So he put a few more together then checked them and the same results.  So I left him to work on them as I worked on Part 3.

So, he continued, making all the 300 4-patches.   He even correct mistakes he would make, with  either seams not matching or uneven seams as checked them.  He finished the 4-patches this morning, even had to making a few strips sets on his own.  

It was great to have some one to sew with, especially someone you love.  I look forward to the next part of the mystery, which we will work on together.
