  4. You come up with such clever ideas! Vary the width, turn alternating strips in the opposite direction, sew them together, voila!
    I must remember that contrast is my friend...

  12. I am amazed at how your strips have been transformed by all that cutting and resewing. That woven effect is marvelous!

  14. Very nice!!

    I send all my scraps and strips away to a lady now. I met her when my scraps got overwhelming and sold them on ebay. Two big boxes full...and she bought them both. Then she told me that she has MS and can no longer get out to fabric shops so getting a box of scraps is like going to a fabric store for her. Her feet can no longer work the foot peddle of the machine so she hand sews everything right now.

    I just sent her another box last week. No use just taking up space. I have never been scrap creative like you are!!

  20. Wow, I love this! This is great! :-) I have a lot of strings. I started a string quilt years ago and have never finished it. This might be a nice addition for some variety. :-)
