    I was given a great suggestion the other day. Instead of using a "frog" (that little piece of fabric that you run through your machine at the end of a seam) have your scraps cut into whatever shape you want and sew two of them together. I have a whole stack of scrap squares that I have put together this way. :P :P Now instead of just having a used up piece of fabric, I will have a scrap quilt :!: :!: I love multitasking :wink:

    Must have had my head buried in my stash and scraps. Great idea and I've got all those squares, triangles, strips and such. Thanks for the tip.

    I was just thinking that if you were doing smaller pieces for a border.(like a piano key..this would be a good way to get them done...

    OK, the name says Wanna_b for a reason. What's a frog? Should I be "frogging"?
