Clue #1 of the A2 QOV Mystery is Finished on National Sew Day

After completing our first Quilt of Valor Mystery on Friday, A1/Stars A Waving by Alycia, got to take some time and complete our first Clue for our second QOV Mystery, A2:

Clue #1 of Quilt of Valor Mystery ready to be trimmed
This clue came together rather quickly, using one of my very favorite methods for creating HSTs - the Magic 8 Method:

Marked, pinned and ready to sew!
And the chain sewing begins:

Magic 8 units have been cut/marked/pinned and ready to chain sew
A close-up of this process:

Sewing 1/4" on each side of the marked lines
Once the sewing is complete, time to cut each Magic 8 unit into eight (8) Half-Square Triangles (HSTs) and press:

Pressed and ALL dog ears removed!
Time to get back to cutting borders and assembling the rest of those Allietare Mystery blocks:

Assembling Allietare Mystery blocks - up to 43 blocks now!

Enjoy your Super Bowl Sunday!
