I'm A Little Weird
I decided to see if I could figure out how it would turn out before I made it. The diagram to the left is my attempt at figuring it out. I'm sure there is a mathematical way to do it, but this was easy for me.
It made a diagram in Paint with 40 rectangles in two rows. I numbered them, then cut them in half, moved them flipped them two ways and continued to that until I'd done it five times.
Then of course I had to actually lay out the strips and then label them so I can put them together in the right order.
I'm glad I took this photo, because it will be interesting to see if I got this even a little bit right. If I follow the same pattern of cutting the strip in half and sewing it back together it should come out close at least. I think I am going to put squares between each strip. I bought gray, but I think white will probably be better
I haven't been quilting much lately. I don't know why I go through such ups and downs, but I am going to try to quilt a bit each day. We'll see if that works out.
I love it, so I should do it instead of sitting in front of the computer so much!
