Rocky Mt. Elk Foundation Quilt 2

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Quilt
 
Part 2

Today, nothing very exciting happened
All of the fronts of the shirts and some backs
have been cut into 3 1/2 inch strips 
and paired up with another color strip.
With right sides together the strips are chained piece together.
Ironed open and ready to be cut again.
Each strip set is cut again at 3 1/2 inches, like this.
Then two different ones are joined to..........
create this 4 patch unit.   
These units will be used to fill in between the main elements of the top.
Once constructed the finished block is 6 1/2 inches
The finished block within the quilt will be 6 inches, 
having 1/4 inch seam allowances.
Not all of the strip sets are cut, and not all of the 
units created.  Time to rest my hand.
More tomorrow.

God Bless and keep you

But progress, and there are probably a *lot* of those units to make. Hope you are happily stitching away on them today.
