Mystery Monday Step 8

Monday rolls around again and it’s time for Step 8 of our Mystery project – you can download a printable version here.

This week we return to Bag Y.  In it you should find  –

4 Block Y1

32 Flying Geese Units (Unit 2) – 32 BDB

32 Half –Square Triangles (Unit 3) – 16 EB; 16 AB

8 Four X (Unit 4) – 8 AEC

Stitch an EB Half Square Triangle unit to each end of a BDB Flying Geese unit.

Make 8.

Note carefully which way the triangles are facing.

B = cream.

Stitch a BDB Flying Geese unit to both C sides of an AEC Four X unit.

Make 8.

Stitch an AB Half Square Triangle unit to each end of a BDB Flying Geese Unit.

Make 8.

Note carefully which way the triangles are facing. This is different from the first set.

B = cream.

Stitch E Flying Geese units to the E side of the AEC Four X unit.

Stitch A Flying Geese units to A side of the Four X unit.

Make 8.

This is Block Y2.  With a great leap of imagination and enterprise put these freshly-made (and pressed) blocks into Bag Y.

Your double check

Bag X should now contain – 1 Block X1; 4 Block X2; 4 Block X3.

Bag Y should now contain – 4 Block Y1; 8 Block Y2

Bag Z should now contain – 16 Unit 2 (ABD); 16 Unit 3 (EB); 16 Unit 3 (AD)

And with Bags X and Y full of neatly pressed blocks we have to wait another week to see what happens next.  Happy stitching!
