Easy Street Steps 7 & 8 and a partial reveal

I fell behind making the step 7 parts for this mystery when my grandson came for an overnight visit.  We just had to play cars and read and color.... much more important than sewing!

I made the four #1 triangles

but I completed only six of the 12 needed #2 triangles before the Step 8 reveal Monday morning. 

Step 8 has us making 16 block A

           and 9 Block B
(oh, but don't look too closely at this picture because I've oriented  two of those 4-patches incorrectly and spent half my sewing time frogging and re-sewing them correctly but forgot to take a corrected picture... I'll get that done eventually)

And because I am impatient and just can't wait to get all the blocks done to see what this will look like, after making just a few, I laid them out on the floor for a sneak peak at my own reveal!.

The holidays are over now and it's back to work tomorrow, so I will have less sewing time to finish assembling blocks and complete the top, but I will get it done and post pictures as soon as possible.

thank you Bonnie for another fun-filled mystery!

UPDATE:  Mon Jan 7...I don't have time to write up another post at the moment for the link up, but I have now completed all the triangles.  Will be working on Blocks A&B this week as time permits.
