We’re not sure who is responsible for time rushing by so quickly that it seems there are at least two Mondays to a week, but it’s already time for the next step in our second Mystery Monday project. This week there’s another block to put together. You can download a printable set of instructions here.

48 Half –Square Triangles (Unit 3) – 16 EB; 32 AB
12 Four X (Unit 4) – 8 AEC; 4 AC
NB – B = cream/background.
Stitch an AB Unit 3 to each end of a BDB Flying Geese unit as shown. Press seams.
Position Alert : Take careful note which way the triangles are facing.
Now Stitch a BDB Flying Geese unit to both A sides of an ACCA Hourglass unit. Press seams.
