Celtic Solstice Mystery Part 2

Hope everyone had a great Holiday and is ready to start to bring in the New Year.  Over the holiday week I spent most of my time working on Part 2 of the Celtic Solstice Mystery.  Making 244 chevrons.

You start by cutting:

488 2” X 3 1/2” green rectangles
488 2” neutral squares
488 2" yellow/gold squares

Divided the group up.  Sew all the neutral to one corner of the green rectangles, then sew the yellow/gold to the opposite side of the green rectangles. Trim leaving 1/4" seam allowance on neutral and yellow/golds and press one direction.  Then do the same for the other group but you will be reversing the direction you sew on the neutrals and yellow/gold squares. After trimming the seam allowance press the seams to the opposite direction. 

Then with the two different sides sew them together and press the seams open.  They will measure 3 1/2" square. 

Once I complete each part I put them in Ziploc bags to keep them together and clean. 

I think I'm going to catch up on a few block of months and quilting I have put on hold, then I will work on Part 3.
