    Recycled Phone Book Pages

    the small books make a perfect size for blocks. This is about 1/3 finished....I'm running out of pink =) Never thought THAT would happen. It goes together very fast when you need some mindless sewing. You don't have to worry about size of strips or seams ~ just the trimming. =)

    I am not sure what you mean. Do you use the pages for paper piecing? There is no picture

    A lot of pretty pinks will be very pretty when it's done. I also just phone book pages for the pp, it works great and easy to tear out.

    I always keep a phone book handy.. So when my scrap strips become too unruly i do mindless sewing and toss the 'pages' in a box for a future quilt..

    I have always wondered just what could I use an old phone book for. That is a great idea, and i am surely going to try that. Thanks for the tip.

    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    I love those colors and the pattern you used. Very nice.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    What a great idea! How many phone books do I get in a year? Wa-a-ay too many! Will be using your idea. I'm not a pink fan but have tons of it. Must need a granddaughter. Your use of them is strikingly beautiful.
