Part 6 Fabrics
I was in my sewing room most of the weekend enjoying the hum of my machine.  I worked until I needed fabric on my last 2016 UFO.  Put that project down and picked up Part 6 of Bonnie Hunter's 2016 Winter Mystery.
Part 6 Cut
I used the new ruler to make short work out of 2" strips for the quarter square triangle pieces.  I think I have found another ruler to add to my favorites next to the Bloc Loc half square triangle ruler.  Besides saving a little bit of fabric, the cutting seemed to take no time at all.  Above are the 64 units ready to assemble.  I kept the same order that Bonnie suggested with the neutral on top.
Part 6 1st Seam
It took no time to send the pieces under the needle along with pressing to the green side.  These are stacks of the halves of the finished quarter square triangle unit. Part 7 is already sitting on the table for working once the dishes are done.  I have the knack of the new ruler, the cutting should be quick.  I am looking forward to seeing the next units of gold, green, and neutral.  I hope to finish the cutting and still have enough time to sew Part 6 together later tonight.

Through Border 1
It is difficult to see Border 1 because it is the background fabric, white.  I have enough of the lighter blue pinwheel for Border 2, but will wait until fabric is found for Border 3.  Using the fabric is uppermost on my mind.  Do not wish to eliminate the possibilities for the last larger border choosing a blue that it must match.  I should be able to get to a local quilt shop later this week. 
December 2016 BOM
Sunshine Quilt Guild
Have you ever made one of these disappearing 4-patch blocks?  I had not until now that I can remember.  It really was fun to make it.  Imagine it started with just four squares...  Wonder who will be the lucky winner tomorrow night at the guild meeting.

Linking in with Patchwork Times.  Enjoy your week.

Half and quarter square triangles, do you start with triangles and sew on the bias, or two larger squares together, and sew 2 lines, 1/4 inch from the centre diagonal line? I found a site that gave all the sizes needed to make them from a given square to start with. I don't trust myself with bias seams. Love your piles all ready to go.
