    Those strips are in your sewing space somewhere: you put them where you would know where they were!! P.S. Love the link and wish I had more red strips!!

    Yeah...found the bags! Bag of red, bag of pink, bag of yellow, bag of green, bag of blue, bag of blackish. The fun will begin evenutally. So think I'll do a red heart, pink heart, yellow heart, green heart, blue heart and save black for someting else. Think this w/b really cute for Quilts for Kids donation.

    Thank you for sharing that. I love it! I am always looking for ways to use the smallest strips. I printed the instructions to put in my "idea" notebook.

    I am going to use foundation muslin and sew selvages to them and then use this pattern to make stars. What a good idea.

    I made 8 quilts out of my scraps using this method last winter. works great and you can create your own designs.
