Roll Roll Cotton Boll, Take 2 plus Clue 3
With clue three in hand for Easy Street we are up to 1732 pieces and I've barely made a dent in my selected fabrics! According to the math wiz Jan in TN we will have 45% of the components done.
My self imposed learning task this mystery is remembering to do leaders and enders when starting and stopping rather than a raggedy little piece of fabric. My project is three inch nine patches for my big brother. They have a California King bed, so I expect it will take an enormous number of these little blocks.
This is the front and the back of what will be a comfort sized quilt when I finish quilting it, 70" X 50". This was a second RRCB, -> -> ->
(number one is a few posts back) and my choice of colors was unfortunate, what was I thinking with all the grey and brown?(Sarah reminded me in comments that I picked them based on the horrific tsunami in Japan--now it does make sense)
and I managed to use up some of the leftovers on the back. I'm happy with these two pieces, and only have about 400 half square triangles left to use up.
