    I have everything cut. Now to service my machine, change thread and sew. I can't believe how much I look forward to Friday mornings now. I did control myself and had breakfast with DH before I peeked at this weeks clue. It's fun to use more colors.

    Oh yes, it is something to look forward every Friday for a few more weeks!

    My step three is all cut and ready to go. I am starting to see why Bonnie keeps so many 2"strips. It would speed the process to open a drawer and go. It still almost gives me the hives to cut down larger pieces just to have strips on hand. Mybe by the time we are done with this mystery, I'll be ok to start strip bins.

    NDQuilts - I don't cut down any of my larger pieces of fabric. The only thing that goes into my 2" strip bin is fabric left over from other projects, that is smaller than a fat quarter. I even fold some of those and put with my smaller pieces. I just finished working on The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt and the Farmer's Wife Pony Club Quilt with others here on the board. As we were working on 6" blocks with the sampler, and 8" blocks with the Pony Club I used a lot of very small pieces in those blocks. Those small pieces came in very handy.

    I got the purple squares cut and the strips cut for the turquoise triangles. We are heading out of town to watch our team play basketball, so I'm done for the night!

    Me, too, NDQuilts! I'm just convinced that as soon as I cut a lot of 2" strips I'll need 2-1/4" strips. I don't think there are any patterns out there that call for 2-1/4" strips, but you know what I mean!

    Yeah, have 16 blocks from Part 3 made today, they came out at 3-1/2 square. I used the easy angle to make these. I also used the two rulers for Part II and trim the flying geese with the "Quilt in a Day" flying geese ruler to trim made it really easy to center the goose. Now to make more 4 patch units.

    Have a great weekend

    I'm going to shock everyone, but I'm not going to do step #3 her way. I own those rulers, but just can do things her way (maybe she is right brained and I am left brained). That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it

    I'm going to do HST's (half square triangles), so mine will end up being a 4 patch. Top row will be a square on the left and a HST on the right. Bottom row will be a HST on the left and a square on the right.

    I'm NOT using scraps, so all my fabrics for the blue would be the same, the background the same, etc. I have the "Triangulations" software, so will just print out the HST size I need and sew them that way. It is so speedy and the exact size you need always happens. To me, personally, this is the quickest and most precise way for me to do this step.

    Thought I'd share in case anyone else just wants to turn their heads away from this project because of those rulers.
