Here's how I make it happen - 15 minutes at a time:
I read the Challenge at Noon on Sunday Jan. 5th. I think, I brainstorm, and I sometimes sketch out a design. But most importantly, I dream....
Later on Sunday or Monday, I gather fabrics.
When I take breaks from my customer's quilting, I press/iron and starch the fabric and cut it. All the strips are assorted sizes from 1 inch to 1 1/4 inch to 1 1/2 inch to 1 3/4 inch to 2 inches.
I am used phone book paper for my base to stitch on the strips.
Next, I started stitching the strips diagonally onto the paper.
I chose to place the solid green on the left side on all of the blocks and any light print on the right.
Press/Iron so the strips lay nice and flat.
I stitched a striped strip on the side next to the light strip and any light print next to the solid green strip. I want it to be scrappy, but have somewhat of a pattern using the solid and striped print to do this.
Press/Iron the blocks again.
Add more light print strips (Then Press/Iron) and then I added solid green for the last strip on the corners. Press/ Iron again.
Press/Iron and then the blocks are ready to be rotary cut into 6 1/2 inch squares or whatever size you would like.
