As I noted in an earlier blog entry, when I’m headed cross country to teach a workshop from Miniatures in Minutes, I like to play with some new design options for the foundation I’m teaching. In about a week and a half, I’ll be in Santa Barbara teaching the 13-Square foundation. So . . . .
I still had some one-inch strips from the Spider Web block table runner I made up for the “For the Love of Color – A Modern Swap.” I cut them down to 5 1/2" and put them on the Go! one inch strip die.
And mere moments later was happily (seriously) eyeing little piles of one inch squares.
I knew I wanted to play with the idea of interlocking crosses so I just started laying out squares.
And laid out more squares.
And finally finished with too many squares. (That’s a 13 by 14 grid I created there – oops!)
But I peeled off the extra row and made up a cute little pouch. Here it is from the front.
With a little bit of inside showing.
And from the back.
And, for the Halloween Mug Rug Giveaway:
So, JJ is the lucky winner. Congrats!
