I set the blocks 8 X 8 and added a 1 1/2" inner border of navy blue Swiss (mini polka dots) Now to flip a coin to see if I do a piano key border or more crumbs. I can't decided on 'words' so this one may not get any.
Good news is my 'crumb' pile is growing and I am adding to it almost daily.
One of my goals this years was to sort the stash and get my crumbs and strings under control- yeah right!!
