I haven't been able to add to the pink drawer of 2 1/2 inch strips in a long time. It is full. I noticed some red had worked it's way into the drawer when I wasn't looking, too. I have a new rainbow scrap challenge block I want to make to use from this drawer and help clean and organize it.
The first step was to divide the strips into width of fabric strips and shorter. I was curious about how many would fall into each category. I grabbed a part of the pile for the HSTS - ( half square triangles ) I was planning to cut.
I needed 2 1/2 inch HSTS for the crumb star blocks, I was planning to make. I had used crumbs and strings to make 8 - 4 1/2 inch squares. Eight was the number, because, that was all I could easily dig and find. Each star needs 8 star points aka hsts.
