    My husband often sits in my studio and "paper pieces" on adding machine rolls. He sews them together based on color.

    Thank you Sue Fish for the reference back to your string quilts. I never knew they could be so beautiful. You have truly inspired me to make one.

    I sometimes call my leftover pieces 'craps' too - especially when they are pieces that I cut wrong!

    This is a brillant idea! And to think I've been bagging and giving my scraps to thrift shop. No more

    They can't see how truly beautiful they are,
    but everyone else can. People are kinda like that. ~~

    A foundation helps keep all those tiny pieces flat and often scraps are bias and that helps with that also
