    Good job, this is the way I(age 7) learned to quilt. My Mom used every inch of fabric for quilting so paper blocks were the way to do that easier. Good tutorial.

    Thank you so much. I was just working in my sewing room with scraps and trying to figure out how small is to small to keep, this gives me a great idea.

    Another way to get inexpensive backing is to buy bed skirts at the thrift store. After I remove the good cotton fabric in the ruffle, I save the flat material that it was attached to and use that as backing, both for t-shirt quilts and strip piecing.
    It is usually some kind of lightweight poly and is always washable.
    I usually can get bed skirts for a couple dollars and there is a lot of fabric to go around 3 sides of even a twin bed, so the top part is really free. LOL

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Judy, I too love making scrappys. The one I worked on this weekend & almost finished is pieced on phone book pages.
    this one is a spider web design. I'll try to post a picture tomorrow.
