When I read the Cutting Instructions for Feb to cut 140 1 1/2" squares "using the scraps you saved from last month" I groaned.
What scraps I thought?
And 140 tiny squares?
And then my Mom gave me a tip - first build strata and then cut them down from there. Of Course!
We had 23 colors in the A's last month so I added one more color.
We need 34 squares on each side and 36 squares top and bottom.
So I cut a 9.5" strip of each at 1 1/2" wide, sewed 12 together and trimmed into 6 strips of 1.5".
Then did the same with the other 12 colors.
For the top and bottom I just joined 2 of the first set with 1 from the second.
And for the sides I just removed one square from one the strips.
