I kept sewing and sewing and slashing and sewing: I have made about 20 pieces of 'fabric' of various sizes by pulling blue out of the bin and stitching whatever came out next. There weren't as many border traffic lights as I though there were.
Last night I chose my accent fabric. Tonight I will be slashing and stitching some more with the orange, experimenting with thickness and lines.
I have been looking at blocks to make with the made fabric that don't need too many small pieces. I can't make up my mind if I should use black and white for the smaller pieces, or just white. More thinking needed, whist I squeeze in the oranges.
