What do you get when.......

.....you gut your fabric the wrong way?

Well in my case you get a bunch of oddly sized blocks in order to make the most of the fabric that you just cut wrong.  

The polka-dotted fabric was supposed to be the binding for the last two snack mats until I realized I'd cut the 3.5" strips lengthwise of the fabric instead of crosswise.....Oops!  And not wanting oodles of seams in the binding on the mats, I decided to use the miscut strips for blocks instead of the binding.  

I've decided on a layout for the quilt that will result from my mistake in cutting, but still need to pull a coordinating fabric and another COC to make more blocks.   Will work on that this coming week among everything else that I need to be doing.

Gratitudes -

1. My coworkers

2. Only 5 1/2 more weeks before summer vacation!

Is this going to be the early morning project, then? I like the start.
