Mystery Monday – Step 5 of a Golden Oldie

001Using the LIGHT/MEDIUM half-square triangle units and the LIGHT/DARK four-patches, make 25 Block A.  Combine the fabrics at random.  The blocks should measure 6-1/2” x 6-1/2” (raw edge to raw edge) when sewn.  Press seams however you wish.

004  ***Note:  This is one of those designs that creates an occasional pressing conundrum no matter what you do.  If you press seams open, you may have more difficulty matching matching points and seams, and you’ll have no “ditch” to stitch in when you reach the quilting stage.  If you press to the side you may have to twist some seams on the back when you assemble the blocks and/or the quilt, to make them butt together properly for easy joining.  You choose!002
