Doing Step five of this mystery kept me smiling.  Why? Because every time I thought "Number Five" I thought of one of my favorite movies, "Short Circuit".  The Star, the robot is called #Five.

Due to extenuating circumstances I wasn't able to finish this step till today.  Bonnie stated we weren't going to have anymore "Flying Geese". When I completed the first unit I looked at it and said if you aren't a "Flying Geese", you must be a "Sitting Duck"
(because of the fat derrier).  

I am still not comfortable with my choice of fabrics for this quilt. 

I used the Brown/Gold as a substitute for Bonnies Aqua.  I used 5 strips plus 14 inches LOF to make my 64 squares which were 3.5 inches.

My purple substitute is the Paisley.  I used 6 strips plus another 4 inch piece for the 128 two inch squares.

This is my unit.

Your sitting ducks are looking great. I'm hoping we start making bigger blocks this week and we can see how our colours work with each other.

Oh! I love that that movie too! I agree with you about the fat derrier... definitely a Sitting Duck and I think your Sitting Duck looks lovely!

Thank you Tammy and Sandra, I can't wait to see how it's going to come together...since I am doing totally different is really adding to the mystery for me.
