1st clue

So the next step after you have your fabric is to make half sqare triangles

Cut 20 squares 3 7/8 of med color#2

Cut 20 squares 3 7/8" of med/dark colour#1

Cut 40 squares 3 7/8" background

make 40 Hst's of colour #2 and background and 40 of color #1and background they should finish at
 3 1/2" square.


Use this method of making half square triangles or one you prefer.

Draw a line on the back side of your background square from corner to corner.

Layer one coloured square with one background square right sides together.

Sew a seam ¼ inch from the line on each side of the line.

Cut on drawn line.

 Press open to form half square triangle.

Trim off dog-ears to make 3 ½” square.
Hope you have fun with this mystery.
