I made 5 new blocks in the afternoon and then decided I needed to sew up the rest of the strips on the table while I watched the Olympic opening ceremony. I’m sewing 11″ strips into an approx. 11″ block. Then I trim them to 10.5″.
The last blocks had a lot of narrow strips in them. This one has 15 strips which means there are 7 inches in just seam allowances. I’m pressing seams open.
I created 6 dark and 4 light blocks and today I’ll play with them in the two quilt tops. I only need 7 more blocks so I can eliminate three that don’t work as well as others.
