Today I would like to share with you the way I cut the stripes of Paint Box which I do with Rawya in the easiest way as possible in my vision.
since I cut every two blocks in the same time, same sizes , multicolored, it takes too much time,I admitted I was confused at the beginning with my first four blocks .
then I came up with an idea when I displayed paper stripes in order of the way the pattern had to be
I cut the fabrics according to the color and size I want, and I cover the paper of that stripe
This way I finished and began to sew the first row around the middle square
I found also if I make no 7 and stripe no 8 bigger than the original size , will give me more space to square my block in the correct size
So I cut no 7 to the long of 6" and to the width of 1 1/2"
and no 8 to the long of 7" and width of 1 1/2"
In the end a happy block with no extra fabric and exact size is ready to wait patiently to be a part of Paint box
