Yesterday I had a hard time zeroing in on a project to work on. I finally decided to tackle the top of my cutting table in my main floor studio. The first thing I saw was a pile of strips left over from a few years ago when I cut and sold I Spy kits. They all had the selvage edge on them (no words or dots, just holes) and varied in width from 1.75" to 3". Every piece wider than 2" got trimmed to 2".
I made Rail Fence blocks with them and laid them out like a table runner. I was thinking of my 3 year old great-grandson while working on this. I could make 2 more blocks and make 3 square placemats. Meanwhile I have the rest of the table top to clean off.
