Taming the Pile

There were a number of strips left in my Bento Box pile.  So, on Tuesday, I decided to tame that pile.  I pressed all the center seams out and any wrinkled areas on the strips.  Then I cut the selvedges off of every strip and cut the 6.5" sections from them all. 
Next up, I sewed the pairs together.  I put them all in this tray that I saved from a discarded (worn out) toaster oven.

They are all sorted and ready for sewing.  I should be able to get them all sewn in a couple of days, barring any delays.

After doing that, I sewed two more blocks.
I was planning to mix the two but I quickly realized that the two greens would touch each other and there just wasn't a great enough value difference.  So they are simple two color blocks - as the pattern dictates.

I am still enjoying making music on the various instruments that I (attempt to) play.  Mom and I are still doing "safe at home" as we are both over 60 and have issues that put us at greater risk. 

I hope you are staying as safe as possible.  Life is good and we should do our best to prolong it.

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

I love the organization you have implemented. You made great use of the toaster oven tray...I would have never thought of that. Good for you and your mom. I hope she had a great birthday.

LOVE seeing your block color combinations. Cookie sheets/trays are great for organizing matched up pairs of strips and block pieces - they're my "not so secret weapon" - LOL - ;))

Safe at home is smart, and necessary, for many of us. Your organization looks terrific and these will be done in no time. Glad you are still enjoying the instruments!
