Mystery Quilt Week Two

Block 1 and Block 2

You will have two postings today. When you have finished reading/printing this one, go directly to the next for block three. (Sorry for the inconvience. I haven't figured out how to get the photo to stay where I want them.)
Before we start todays session, I would like to stress the importance of reading through all the instructions, especially those to do with colour placement. Study the photos to be sure you understand each colours position.

You have 2 sets of strips in light colours which we will label L1 and L2 respectively.
You have 4 sets of dark/bright coloured strips which will be D1, D2, D3 and D4
D3 and D4 were cut from the 1/2 meters (20") of fabric

Cut 19 cm (7 1/2") from one L strip and 27 cm (10 1/2") from the other L strip.

Set these short pieces aside. They are for block 3

Block 1
Sew the remaining D3 strips to the L1 strips
Sew the remaining D4 strips to the L2 strips.
Note: ensure that every strip is sewn together in the same way i.e. all the D strips on top.
Press strips open. Cut strips into 9 cm (3 1/2" ) sections.
Sew sections together using Block 1 photo as guide. Press. Trim if necessary to make a 16.5 cm (6 1/2") square.
Block 2
Sew remaining D strips together ensuring that each colour will be in the same position as shown in the photo. Press.
Cut into 9 cm (3 1/2") sections. Sew sections together using block 2 photo as a guide.
Press. trim if necessary.
Block three will continue on the next posting.
