    I posted this recently as an EQ design and thought I'd share my progress. I went with the first option of seahorses with fish as a secondary pattern and wanted to make it as a wall hanging rather than a full size quilt so decided on 6" blocks. It will be 48" x 36" without borders - I haven't decided on borders yet, will piece the middle first! Anyway, I just cut all my strips at 1 1/4" wide and 1" wide unfinished and laid them out in cutlery trays ready to go! I'm piecing the normal way rather than PP - good practice for those accurate scant 1/4" seams!

    Can't wait to see when it's finished. Love how to use the silver ware tray to store your pieces.

    I just read Judy Martin's book about log cabins and using trays to hold the strips. Looks like a good idea.

    LOL! You're at an organizational level I can only dream about!

    I love the pattern.
