Sorry being late posting my progress. My Sunday got changed when the futon used in my husband's entertainment area crashed to the floor. I then spent time online looking for a replacement and then going to the store to decide what to buy, picking it up, and putting the darn thing together.
I finally got the cutting completed just out of sheer determination. I also have 31 tri-recs blocks sewn and cut 4 of them to make one unit 1. Like Cathy, I was able to get quite a few of the smaller units cut from the larger strips too. Remember me telling you I'd made a template for the light pieces? Well the cutting was going so slow that I decided to purchase the ruler again. It was only $8.99 at JoAnn's and I have a 40% off coupon. It made absolutely no sense to use the template.
