    Now, you may be asking yourself, “What in the world do noodles have to do with quilting and what is a fabric noodle?”. Simply said, a fabric noodle a strip of fabric that is the length of the measurement of the width of the fabric (WOF). In other words, a 2.5″ noodle would be a strip that was 2.5″ wide by the WOF, which usually ranges between 40″ - 44″.

    Use them to make bindings for quilts (and to give a quilt some “zing”, use a variety of colors and/or textures from your noodles to bind a single quilt!),
    Cut them into smaller pieces and use the smaller pieces in quilts, such as 2.5″ squares,
    Use them as sources of your stash to appliqué,
    Use them as the whole noodles to make a “noodle quilt”,
    Use them in a “braided” border,
    Use them in the “Tessellating Stars” pattern,
    Use them to make log cabin blocks,
    Use them to make rail fence block,
    Use them to make piano key borders,
    Use them in Half-Square and/or Quarter-Square Triangles,
    Use them to make diamonds using the LeMoyne Star pattern,
    Use them in “I Spy” quilts,
    Use them in a “Lasagna” quilt,
    Add them to your stash for future projects.

    Debbie Caffrey wrote the book Noodle Soupand other "strip" books. I took a teachers' class from her about 6 years ago, at Quilt Market in Kansas City. She is full of good ideas!

    So now I always cut my scraps into strips. I use 2" strips, however, because that is what I prefer for most quilt patterns and binding.

    This website - http://www.quiltville.com/ - has many free patterns for using strips.
