On Ringo Lake part 4

"On Ringo Lake" is Bonnie Hunter's 2017 Mystery Quilt, now in its fourth week. Clue 4 was posted on Friday, but it was Saturday before I got started. So far I have 56 units made, and a few half made:


I stopped when I ran out of the right-hand wing triangles.

In the past I have found this a very difficult unit, but it's going more easily this time. Vireya has pointed out that Lorna McMahon at https://sewfreshquilts.blogspot.com has a tutorial for making this block .  Anyone having difficulty in finishing with a straight line hypotenuse might find using Lorna's pattern a good idea. You don't need the complete Happy-go-Lucky block obviously, just these triangles. It's best to read both these posts as Vireya gives some hints on using Lorna's pattern in this context.

It's tempting to try to guess the final layout, but that is still a mystery.

I shall be linking up later today to:
http://quiltville.blogspot.nl/2017/12/mystery-monday-link-up-part-4.html 
so click on the button to see more winged triangles, 
and not all aqua and brown!

Happy sewing

Marly.

The aqua and brown look gorgeous together, don't they?

That's an awesome tip! Thank you so much for sharing. I am so happy I haven't cut my pieces yet. It will make the job much easier I am sure. ;^)

Your units are looking good. Initially, I was not looking forward to making this unit but I was pleasantly surprised to find out how easy they were to put together.

Your triangles are gorgeous! And I was feeling bad about not getting a chance to start my clue 4's yet, but seeing this alternate method is really cheering me up! Difinitely going to give it a try!

Your units are coming out very cute. I love that you chose the darkest hues of aqua and chocolate brown, they really contrast well.

Your blocks look great! I’ve never made this unit before but I’m having no trouble with it.
