Now I do need to tell you that I cut too many strips and ended up making about 305 of these blocks. But as it happened, some of them came out TOO SMALL. How that happened I don't know. However, about 230 of them are the RIGHT size.
I now have about 70 that I had to cut down to 2 inches [peaking out on the left of the photo]. This kind of error explains why I always have plenty of "orphan blocks". These will go in the drawer labelled "2 inch squares" for now, and at some future point they will be discovered to be Just The Thing I was needing for a doll quilt or some other project.
Bonnie's other colors for the mystery are Red and an accent of Blue. Step #2 requires the making of 72 strip pieced blocks, using her blue. I'm trying to decide . . . not real enamoured of the idea of Red and Blue. Maybe darker tones of yellow instead of blue? Need to make a decision and get going on these because Step #3 will come out on Friday.
