    do you save up the craps and then do a load at a time, or use them as you acquire them? yours seem to be well-mixed.

    I KNOW she meant SCRAPS
    I saw a tip one time - - when you have a container full of the same sized anything, then it is time to make a quilt.
    For a project like this, I would think that a container the size of the plastic shoe boxes at walmart would be a good guide for when to do the string pieced adding machine tape technique.
    But, I am not organized. If I were, this is the way I would do it!
    *as she looks around at the 22 plastic shoe box containers full of scraps and remembers the two big boxes upstairs that she "organized" shoe boxes into and thinks - - is this really going to be helpful?????***

    maybe i didn't mean scraps, wise guy! :roll:

    anyway, i think i would wait a long time, more than a shoebox. maybe a boot box. maybe a dresser drawer. then scramble them around really well. i think diversity is the key so the string matches everything.

    Hi everyone. I'm very new to the board but not to quilting so feel like a real ninny for not understanding this tute about string piecing on adding machine paper. I don't understand what the point of the paper is. Sorry, I love the look of all the quilts made from the strips but am quite stumped as to why you need the paper. Please enlighten me lovely ladies.

    The paper acts as a stabilizer and guide.

    I'm not sure what context you are using it in, but I think ... it is a pre-printed quilting pattern. If I am correct, it goes along with a long arm quilting machine and you trace the pattern with a stylus while your machine does the stitching.
