    It is a great way to recycle those sheets!!! Just make sure all of the oil is out of them first. It can stain your fabrics :wink: that is why they do not suggest using them on anything but damp fabrics :D

    I use to save my dryer sheets but now I use the four month Bounce insert in my dryer, so no dryer sheets. I use plain interfacing for strip piecing. It's dirt cheap. :D

    I use old sheets that I buy at rummage sales. I can usually get them for 50 cents or a buck.

    Strippy quilts or string quilts can be foundation pieced like that. Good luck.

    I did the very same thing only I used the pages from all the catalogues we get in the mail. Free and I'm recycling too!
