Christmas Delight Mystery Quilt Along Week Two

We starting our second week of the mystery quilt.  At the end of this week you will have ten ornament blocks!  

This week you will learn to make a checkerboard block and blocks using half-square.   In the You Tube Tutorial, I show you several techniques for making half-square triangles using the traditional method and the Triangles On A Roll (paper) method.   I also included a section in the tutorial for fussy-cutting the center block versus using half-square triangles.  

The checkerboard block is quite simple, so I decided to add a twist to it.   It looks like I cut each little bow, but I did not.  I used the strip technique.  In the You Tube tutorial I show you how to line up your strips so you can center the bows in the block.

I would love to see your blocks, so please post them in our “Quilting with Sandy” Facebook group.
