Last weekend I cut these (34 sets of 4 like rectangles = 136 rectangles)
and today I cut these – 135 sets of 4 like rectangles =540 rectangles)
Actually I cut a few more than I needed but I actually kept things fairly neat and tidy. Normally I would have just tossed the leftovers, pieces to go back in the stash, scraps, etc. all in a pile on the floor.
However, check out the tidy area next to where I’m working. The nicely folded stack of larger pieces to go back in the stash – the clear plastic zipper pouch holding the scraps to keep and the leftover schnibbles (well except for one or two) all in the wastebasket.
Much nicer than have to clean it all up at the end.
Next up I have tons of background squares to cut – two for every rectangle cut – but I’m going to alternate cutting those with piecing a group after I cut them so as to break up the monotony.
