I'm still playing with ideas for the strippy blocks. I had the idea to make darker blocks for the bottom and had to try it. If you missed the original layouts they are here. I am not sure I have a smooth enough transition and I can make some specific blocks to help with that. I'm also not sure it has to be that dark.
This one would be 50" x 60" if I make one more block. The original plan was to have one more row which means one more day of sewing blocks. So many decisions.
I have plenty of time to sew though. It only got up to 2 degrees yesterday and back into the -teens last night. Today will be cold again so I will only make one short trip to the grocery store and then be back home.
