Mystery Block - Page 2

To make the blocks center, sew a Color 2 half square triangle to opposite sides of the Color 1 square. Press seam allowances out. Then sew a quarter square triangle to the remaining two opposite sides, and again press the seams out...

Now sew a Color 3 half square triangle to opposite sides of the center , pressing seams out. Then add two more triangles to the other two sides, pressing seams out. This unit should measure8-1/2" at this point...

Now piece  the block, by first making rows, and then joining the rows to make the block! Use 1/4" seams throughout, and remember to alternate pressing directions by row to avoid those uggy bulky seams!

Here's a quilt...a tad the blocks are separated by strips of Color 1 and extra left and right columns of the main block...

Happy Quilting Everyone!!
