Step 5 & 6 of the Mystery

My goodness, the time I took enjoying family visiting at Christmas did set me wayyyyy behind on the Bonnie K. Hunter mystery! But I am going at my own pace and not rushing.

I found that I could combine the step 5 and step 6 and do them as one. That is, instead of making 600 HST's and then sewing them together later into 120 sawtooth units, I'm making the 120 units as I go. So far, I'm up to 60 of the 120, halfway! Yippee! Here is what they look like.
The one disadvantage to this is that, as I am using WOF yardage for my neutrals, rather than true scraps, my sawtooth pieces are completed as sets rather than all-jumbled up scrappiness. It is my compromise. I know that if I had made all 600 and then stirred them up and THEN sewed them into the sawtooth units, they would probably sparkle with scrappiness. But I must admit that I have felt overwhelmed by these steps! So combining them is just my way of coping so that I don't give up.

there will still be plenty of scrappiness. Your Yankee quilt is fabulous!
Happy new year, Sharyn
