This one has been fun to put together I’ve had to make more blocks a couple of times while deciding just how many rows I wanted. It ended up 8 rows across and 8 down. Since this was a Cutting Bee (from Fons and Porter’s book by the same name) quilt I was working from my 2 1/2 inch strips and 4 1/2 inch strips.
You would think for as large as the quilt is the bins would be near empty. Although the 4 1/2 inch bin is looking a little thinner by the time I clear off the cutting table tomorrow it will barely be noticeable! Not much though since I almost always cut just a couple of new pieces to add into the mix, especially backgrounds.
