EASTER MYSTERY FROM ME TO YOU, part 2

Step 8.
Please go back to my Easter Mystery part 1 and look at picture under step 6 and 7.
I have layed my strips or rows displaced compared to eachother. This because I want to arrange my rectangles like bricks.
The easy way to make my rectangles look like bricks is to cut every second strip/row at the top and every second at the buttom.
Cut 2 1/4" off every strip/row number 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11 AT THE TOP of the strip/row.
Additional you cut off 2 1/4" on strip/row number 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 AT THE BUTTOM of the strip/row.
Now you can sew the rows together.
Sew strip/row 1 and 2 together, 3 and 4, 5 and 6, 7 and 8, 9 and 10.
Iron the seem open.
Sew row 1+2 together with 3+4, and so on until you have one piece of all your rows. Press all the long seems open. Look at the picture below...........

Another view of the back.
The front looks like this :-)
Further specifications:
Unfortunately you have to wait until my return back home to get the rest of my Easter Mystery. This because I had too much to do before our travel to Tromsø. I'm really sorry for this and I know it may be a little tiresome for you. I had to give priority to my Mother-in-laws birtdaygift and my time was tighten up. During the National Championship for skijump and Nordic combined late in March, I had leader responsibility for all the people who were volunteers (nearly 200). This work came on top of my everyday-work as a RAMS engineer and it took a lot of my energy and strength. A report had to be send to one of our customers at work, so two of my days off were cancelled as well. So my time-limit was crossed.
But; You can follow the Easter Mystery and make this tablerunner for Easters to come :-)

Anyway; I want to wish you all A HAPPY EASTER.
TAKE CARE!
