One QOV Mystery Concludes...Another Begins!

We finished up this recent QOV Mystery:

Alycia's A6/Big Star Country revealed!

...just in time for another Patriotic Mystery by Lisa to begin:

Patriotic Mystery fabric choices

Our first clue was actually released on Friday, September 8, 2017 however, since I was having a bit of trouble trying to locate one of my mystery fabrics, got a bit of a late start this afternoon, but soon caught up ;-).

The first mystery clue included LOTS of Half-Square Triangles/HSTs:

Cutting the HST squares in layers to save time

All the triangle units are cut, marked and pinned:

HST units marked/pinned - ready to stitch

Chain piecing is also a BIG time-saver:

Chain  piecing the HST units

Several hours later, we have a completed Half-Square Triangle units - sewn/pressed/trimmed...including those dog ears!

Patriotic Mystery Clue #1 ALL complete
