granny squares week 4

there has been an effort to get all the 24 blocks together, a bit more cutting and i had to go to the shop for more solid white cotton. it has turned out wonderful, i'm excited every time i sit down and work on this summer project. the last hour i spent on trimming the blocks into rectangular shapes, all have to be the same size. of course there is some give and take as i'm not the perfect seamstress, there has to be room for an 1/8th more or less here and there.
i'm now looking forward to puzzle colourful blocks together, not sure yet how i will arrange them, so many options! next step, sewing the borders and then it's playtime!
