Orange Crush Mystery, Part 3!

A few days early,but I'm leaving tomorrow for St Petersburg Fl....I thought I'd gift you with the next step of Orange Crush tonight!

In this step we will be making HALF split 4 patch units.

Remember when I said we would need the easy angle ruler, and NOT the companion angle ruler for this mystery?? I forgot there were half blocks involved! So if you do have the companion angle handy, you can use it in this step. If you don't, never fear, I'm going to give you regular rotary cutting directions for the pieces. Several of you who have done the Carolina Crossroads Mystery will already have the companion angle in your ruler collection. It wasn't until I sat down to do these half blocks that I realized they would come in handy!

This is a small easy step, which is a good break from the big steps we've had so far. Instructions are for 44 units, 22 facing right, 22 facing left :c)

I hope you are all having as much fun with this project as I am! :cD

    I love that even your mystery quilts are scrappy. I've done other mystery quilts were you buy YARDAGE of 3 or 4 different fabrics and you end up with a bland looking quilt. Thank you for sharing your ingenuity with us.

  4. Thank you Bonnie, my 44 are done! Be safe on your trip and enjoy...
