Easy Street Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville

Well after 2 weeks of no Internet I am behind the 8 ball in this mystery quilt. There us a clue each Friday and I missed the first 2, so I am running to catch up.
Last week saw some serious sewing of Miss Le Coiffures surprise quilt the top is all finished I only have to baste it then quilt it !
Her quilt consists of 63 12" blocks quite a big one.
Anyway I made some head way yesterday and today.
Step 1 is all cut and sewn. I only need to iron the blocks fat, but I can do that at anytime.

Step 2 cut ready to sew today.

Look what I found I had a quarter and half square ruler. In the instructions Bonnie uses 2 as I was reading them a little light went of in my brain.
I had recently gathered together all my specialized rulers into one place and remember seeing a ruler that would do the job! There it was still wrapped in plastic, well it has worked hard these last 2 days!
Step 3 also cut ready to sew. Phew.
