In our area, we finally had some sunshine and heat. All of the garden (that which the slugs didn't eat) are showing signs of new growth. We even had to water! I know that this sounds a little silly, but we really haven't had much sunshine or heat at all up till now. Hubby and I have been able to get the lawns mowed, gardens weeded, eaves cleaned out, fence finished, house cleaned and lots of siesta time in between.
I cut the fat quarters into 2 1/2" strips, sewed a 1" strip to one of the matched pair of strips and then sewed on the the other side. I then cut out 5" blocks.
