Another Improv experiment

    In Sujata's class in Ithaca, we did a sample rail fence cutting 5 1/2" strips into freehand units. At home, I have a lot of 3 1/2" strips because lots of times cutting fabric, there is that much left over and I hate to cut it down to 2 1/2" and lose fabric. So, I tried using 3 1/2" ones and was able to get enough to do a 5 x 5 layout instead of a 4 x 4. So, now do I continue and make more? The block would finish at 12". I could make comfort quilts out of 4 blocks by 5 blocks having no border. Hmmm.
