We discussed various blocks, and finally decided on a 16 patch where alternates were white ish, and the others are using up whatever we've got - it would be fun to see if we can have each patterned square as a unique fabric.
Jackie started yesterday with this one
and I had a play this afternoon (rubbish day at work so I needed therapy!)
I rooted through my far-too-full strips box
And paired a whole load of strips with fabric that was white or certainly low volume
And joined them together and cut them up and rejoined them:
So a 16 patch needs to be 4 x 4 yes? And I need to think double to make one for Jackie too?
Well in my mind that was a lot of doubling. It was only after I'd joined each one to white and pressed them that I realised I had enough not for TWO sweet 16 blocks, but FOUR!
