Unpick or Just Start Over?
Last night I started cutting more parts for my Boy's Britches blocks. I have fallen behind in making them in the colours of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge so I need to make them in green, blue and now yellow. I did get all of the coloured parts of the britches cut out. I use a homemade plastic template to mark the fabric for cutting these pieces because they are an awkward shape but happily they fit very well on the 3.5" strips from my scrap bins. I still need to cut the black and the white fabric and I plan to have all of these blocks finished by the end of the month - I hope!
After cutting the needed pieces I am left with a pile of strip ends that need to be cut down and I have started that process too. I will finish cutting these leftover bits into rectangles and squares today and they will be ready to use in a future quilt.
