"Courtyard" Mystery Quilt, Clue 7

Now we’re going to rotate and place the blocks, and sew them into a top.  The seams should all be pressed so they “nest” up against the seam next to them.   I sew the rows together, and press the seams in the top row one direction, the seams in the next row the opposite direction, and keep alternating.  But you can do it the way you usually do.)

Paying careful attention to the orientation of each block, arrange and sew the blocks into 6 rows of 4 blocks each, as shown below.  (To keep from getting confused, or my eyeballs rotating around in my head, I follow the direction the Blue “arrow” is pointing in each block.)  Every 2 x 2 block section repeats.

When sewn together, it creates a secondary, interlocking pattern.

It's all over but the shouting.  Well, and the border.....  See you next week for the final clue.
