Colleague Rita has told me to let you all know what I'm planning for Project 1 so that you can advise if necessary, so here we are.
I'm planning to make 4 place mats & a runner out of a charm pack of pink plain & patterned 5" squares. There.
She's also told me that my original Plan was rather ambitiously complicated, so we've thrashed out a compromise.
The place mats will end up being 3 squares by 2 squares in size and then afterwards have a border added:
I start by running three squares together, then I'll cut each 3 square run in half longitudinally, & shift the pieces like this to make a brickwork effect. I can cut off the half bricks from row 2 & 4 and swap them to fill the gaps.
The border will be the plain dark green, backing possibly baby blue.
