Bonnie released clue three and since I had the morning off work I got right to it. I even took her advice and stopped to measure! Good thing I did because my second strip set (pulled from my scraps) was actually a quarter inch too narrow! It looked the same to my eye and if I had not checked it my first set would have been small! Here is the first block!
Bonnie is a wise woman and tells us to pin/clip in sets of ten. This has saved me hours of counting I am sure! I take it one step farther and count out how many clips I need to get my sets of ten before I start! Then I always know how many more I need to go or when I am close to getting done! For example if you need 100 units, count out ten clips! Easy peasy!
I managed to make about 15 before I had to leave for work. I also work some of the day tomorrow but pretty sure this clue is going to come together more easily than the last one! Well, I am at work so I better get to it! Happy sewing!
