This is the block from my scrappy project from 5 inch squares. Each block takes 4 sections.....2 of the dark/light HSTs and two of the 4 patch sections---one in light values and the other in dark values. Each unit is 4 1/2" unfinished.
Lay out the units into a block and join together.
The block will be 8 1/2 " unfinished.
Here is one block sewn. It is a great illustration of value. Notice the rosy square in the light area 4 patch......it is really a strong medium, but by placing it among the light fabrics, it appears lighter. And it adds just a bit of interest in the light values. If placed in the dark half, it stands out as much too light.
Easy Street update: I got caught up on the mystery from Bonnie Hunter. And then what does she do? The next step involves more "wings".....I am going to fall back to the optional no-waste method using squares rather than those tiny triangles. I'll only need 8 of the large squares for this step! Sounds better than 100 tiny triangles to me.
Sir Old Man cooked breakfast this morning! Banana waffles were excellent.....and a movie this afternoon. I better check the calendar, as it must be a special day. Happy stitching.
