Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt – Part 4 – 4 patch units

This weeks work for the mystery quilt over at Quiltville is for 120 4 patch units.  I’m happy to say that I got this part of the mystery completely done.

Can’t wait to see how all of the blocks so far come together in the final layout.

I’m having a bit of trouble with spinning the seams on the pinwheel blocks on Week 3.  Does anyone know if I can just press the seam OPEN on them, instead of trying to spin them open.  (It was easy to spin/twirl the seams open on the 4 patches, but not so good on the pinwheels.)

My orange and green 4 patches:

mystery4Hope over to Bonnie Hunter’s blog to see what everyone else is doing on their mystery Quilt!  Some great eye candy over there, for sure.

    You can probably press the seams however you like, but spinning them may make putting the parts together a bit easier. Also it helps to reduce some of the thickness at the centre junction if the seams spin. But it isn’t compulsory!

    Your 4-patches look very bright and happy.

    Deb, I didn’t spin my pinwheels, instead chose to press the final seam open. The 4 HST blocks I pressed so they would interlock. I don’t think it will matter in the final picture.
    I like the colors of your 4 patches. Light and airy. Mine are a bit dark, but it’s using up stash, so that’s ok with me.
