|I wonder how they will be used in the quilt.|
Sometimes I like to kit up my units and make them one at a time. This is especially true is the unit has several pieces. It helps me stay organized. I usually put together 10-20 kits at a time. This may seem more labor intensive, but it works for me. I like seeing each unit come together and I find I make less mistakes this way. Also is I get interrupted it is easy to get back on task.

After doing a few of these units my memory kicked in and I recalled doing these for a block in a previous quilt. Was it Easy Street? To ensure everything went in the right direct I kept Bonnie's instructions with pictures near my machine. My only change in construction was to flip the unit and sew the second wing from the back. I like how everything lays and I only had to clip the corner and finger press to put the unit together.

It's hard to say how many more steps we will have. Initially Bonnie said her mysteries are usually somewhere between 6 and 8 weeks. I can't imaging we will complete the quilt next week. However, I am banking on at least putting some blocks together. I will spend my week making sure I have everything ready. I can't wait till Monday's link up and see everyone's progress.
Thanks for checking in. Happy sewing.
