Mystery Monday 6 Step Three

Monday again already so it must be time for the next Mystery step – you can download a printable version here.

Step 3

Find the bag or heap of dark squares.

Sew them together into 4-patch units.

Make at least 18 dark 4 patch units – as we’ve said before, the more you have the more design opportunities there will be.  Resist the urge to match things up and keep your placement and arrangement of squares as random as you possibly can.

Try to make the same number of dark units as you did light.

Option B

If you have lots and lots of scraps – especially small ones – then make 9-patch units rather than 4-patch

Notice how the seams have been pressed to reduce bulk.
You should now have lots of 4-patch or 9-patch units, lights and darks in their 2 bags (or heaps) – keep them safe for next time.
