The first thing we did was clean up my sketch. We cut out a (rough) 6 x 6 inch square of graph paper. The reasoning behind that size is I noticed that the blocks used as examples for the block challenge were about 75% empty space. All the color was concentrated in the other 25% of the block. We then were able to start measuring out the color strips and cutting them out. I got as far as finishing sewing the lower right corner before I gave up for the night. Maureen needs time to work on her block too and she can’t do it while babysitting me.
