PS!!! If you copied this this morning  read through again - a change has been made in Step 1 part 2. THis change was made at 3pm colorado time - thank yoU!!

Clue # 3
Light #1 (or White in my Example)


Cut
1.    1 – 9 ½ inch Strip Width of Fabric
a.    Sub Cut into 4 - 9 ½ inch squares

2.    1 – 10 inch Strip Width of Fabric
a.    Sub Cut into 4 – 10 inch squares
3.    1 – 2 ¾ inch Strip Width of Fabric
a.    Sub Cut Using your Easy Angle Ruler – into 8 pairs of * Wings* ( like in clue 1 and 2)
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN EASY ANGLE: Cut 8 - 3 1/8 inch squares, Cut them on the diagonal for 16 *wings*

4.    Cut 2  - 5 inch squares ( I got one out of my scrap, and one out of the yardage)








Step 1
·         Take 3 of your 10 inch Light Squares, and 3 - 10 inch Background Squares.
o   Draw a diagonal on the back of one of them, stitch ¼ inch on either side of the line, slice and press open
·         Take 1 10in square of Dark #2 from Clue #2, take 1- 10 inch square of your light, and cut them down the diagonal. Pair these two together – stitch ¼ inch and press open - resulting in ONE HALF Square in Dark #2 and Light

·         Take the left over Light ½ square – take your left over ½ Background square ( from Clue#2). Pair these two together – stitch ¼ inch and press open




Step 2
Take your *Light Wings* and pair them with the 8 Background *Geese* ( cut in Clue 1) and make 8 flying geese.


Lay them out to make 2 Sawtooth Stars and stitch





*At the end of this clue you should have
7  - Light/background ½ squares
1 – Light/Dark #2 ½ squares
4 – Light 9 ½ inch squares

2 – Sawtooth stars – measuring 9 ½ inch
