I worked on making a scrappy swoon using 2 1/2" squares at the retreat. It took me most of the weekend to complete this. My daughter has the sweetest teacher that is retiring this year. I would like to get it completed for her. My husband isn't a big fan of the border, but I am quite fond of it.
I should add that our school colors are green/white/and yellow. It was a fun project, and I would like to make another one with the 3 1/2" squares. You can find the instructions for the project here if you are interested.
The truth of the matter is- it didn't even make a little dent in my pre-cut scraps that I was using.
