Bonnie Hunter was right, 'Easy Street' is not as difficult as the last two mysteries, and the numbers seem a bit more manageable too - so far! The next part was a shaded four-patch, and this time, instead of the interminable triangles, I decided to use this method. You cut the black and white fabric into rectangles, not squares and then cut to give two half nine-patches. I can't remember the measurements, but leave a comment if you would like them.
Here are the completed blocks, and looking very good too.
So, while I waited for the next part, I had to do something, right? I dug out my Canuk Swap. this was a swap with some Canadian quilters which didn't really go as planned. The idea was to make a central block, and then for each participant to make blocks of the same total area, but not the same dimensions. One of those 'it seemed like a good idea at the time' things, which didn't work out in practice. here is my central block, with the one set of flying geese blocks which were any use.
Then I had four each of these blocks,
three each of these,
and two of these. Really helpful! After my success with being uo to date with 'Easy Street', I decidedto make something of these random elements, to deal with yet another PIG!
Bonnie has now posted the next set of instructions, so I'll get on with those before I reveal my solution!
