Let's Use Up All Those Scrappy Strips!
I've decided on a couple of things:
8/5 inch blocks: I can use my leftover 8.5 x 11 printed-on-one-side scrap paper to make the foundation pies. Easy peasy.
Center strip of a white (any white) 2-inches wide so that some sort of design will play out when I start putting the quilt together.
Size? Not too big - must decide who this is being made for! But it's fun and easy.
I have the iron on a towel to the right of my machine so that I can iron each piece as I add it, with my iPod reading me a book (The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths right now) I can make one or two before getting bored and going on to something else.
Number of squares made yesterday and today: 6
