I got tired of wasting thread while I tested my new machine--remember the over oiling--and goofy tension and trying to find the best thread? :roll: So, I starting sewing strips together. Then I decided to cut them up into squares--and stick them in blocks. I didn't want to worry about getting every block the same size--I have many scrap strips of various widths. I found a nice batik that will border anything that needs to be bigger. I'll work on this little by little-between other projects. But I really like it so far. As long as I stick to fallish hues, it should come out kind of nice.
Scrappy quilts are my favorite, but since most of my scraps are strips...well...this works. I know this pattern is not my idea--I've seen it somewhere. Haven't I?
