Here we go - actual piecing fabric - hurrah!
I started with my fabric squares and sewed them together in strings of three.
Once I'd done all of those, I chopped them in half lengthwise.
And this evening I've been playing with the layouts of the mats & runner.
I need to tag the extra spare half brick onto the start of row 2 & 4 for each mat from the pile of spare squares.
And I need to re-do a couple of the 3 run blocks, due to the cutter not following the ruler line. Running the cutter against the ruler is harder than you would think! It had a mind of it's own on three of my cuts - another thing that needs more practise.
This aside, I'm pleased with today!
