I am just having a good time playing with all my scrappy fabrics, to make these great blocks. So far, I have managed to make 12 blocks - and only that many because my DH is away.
On Sunday, I decided to cut up heaps of pieces, so that I could just pick them up and sew together.
I was astounded at how many striped or directional fabrics I had to cut up. I must admit that I have always favoured them, and buy some whenever I see them. There is so much you can do with these fabrics.
Some fabrics can be cut so that you can use them in two different ways. I have done this with a few of the fabrics.
Look at all these gorgeous stripey fabrics I found ! Just love them.
Then I started cutting up 2" strips of dark/medium/light fabrics for the rest of the blocks. I have used most of these, and cut up a whole lot more today.
These are the blocks I made today
and these I made yesterday. Once everything is cut up, it takes only 15 minutes to make one block. I am on a roll.
