    but now what? I'd like to make a twin size so I need to double the size from the 64 and sash. What kind of design? I'm at a total loss. It was a great way to use us my scrape bin.

    Here is one I did recently if you want to look at the layout. I used dryer sheets too & backed it in flannel.

    wow- I need to learn how to size my photos!

    You foundation piece onto dryer sheets, like you would for muslin or any foundation. I cut my used dryer sheets into squares, sew my strips onto it, then square the block. I started from the center of the dryer sheet & laid down a strip then sewed a strip onto it, pressed, sewed another one down, etc. No need to remove the foundation. So each of the 4 squares in the blocks of my quilt pictured are sewn onto 1 dryer sheet. I hope that makes sense! I think I heard of the technique from The Quilter's Cache.

    that's beautiful. Just wish I'd sewed them on a diagonal instead of straight.
