    I just watched a Sewing With Nancy show on QNN that has the best idea for a quilt.
    Its in the series 1700 and it is called Scrap Happy Piecework.
    Im so impressed that Im dropping every other project to make one.
    I have searched for the book but it seems to be out of print.
    It is all strips in various sizes cut to make six inch blocks put togather to make 12 inch blocks. Using 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 - 3 1/2- 4 1/2 - 5 1/2 strips then cutting each to combine into 6 1/2 inch blocks.
    Be sure and watch it if you have QNN.

    I'm actually doing a quilt with strips of various lengths: 8", 10" 16" 20" and 22". I'm randomly sewing one of each together until I get the width that I want. Then I will put on a "piano Keys" border. It's been fun. I'm using Debbie Mumm fabric with sewing themes.

    Moonhoney2 I found a really nice pattern on the internet (I don't remember where). It's called Bricks and stepping Stones. It's made up of four-patches and rectangles - no corners to match.

    I downloaded it into a word document. Pictures and all. Try searching for the pattern name. You should find it with no problem. Would make a great first quilt. :)
