I don't know about others, but whenever I finally start to think I am on top of things, I take on something new and get into a tangle again. I do find that it helps to allocate a certain amount of time each day to a particular project if you have a deadline in mind.
5 1/4" cut into 4, and one lot is 5" cut into 2.....so you know what I did? I cut out too many of the smaller ones and not enough of the larger. Eek!
Each day I picked out groups of 4 different cut fabrics, and laid them on a little design board, and sewed them up. Once they are all cut it only takes about 20 minutes to sew and press one block. So far I have managed to get 14 of them done. I have enough to make another 4, but will have to cut more fabrics for the colours.
I will have left over triangles, so I am thinking of making a boarder using them. I will see how many left over "mistakes" I have at the end.
Back to the "ticks"!
