    Wink 12 identical blocks from 2 rolls of 2 1/2 inch strips? Pattern help needed.

    I found it hard to find patterns that I could use 2 1/2 strips and use my roll of strips. I have two rolls that are the same giving me by the looks of it 4-6 strips that are the same but I have not found a pattern yet that I could get 12 identical blocks out of two rolls. If some one has any ideas please let me know. Thanks.

    Great site hopetoquilt, and those are perfect for the jelly roll strips. I too am trying to think of what would work...

    I found a bunch, must have been 1.5 yards, of 2.5" strips that I had cut up for another quilt a long time ago. So I had to figure out a pattern with what batiks I have. I am going to do the double nine patch since the strips will work perfect for that block. So put in a new blade and went to town. I still have enough left that I may have to make another set of blocks with the 2.5" strips. Will have to think hard again on what to do. I may implement the merry go round block that is going on in another swap to this one just to use those strips up. It would work. I am just a cutting addict. Love to cut that fabric. Cut out five sets of 12 blocks each in just a couple hours while embroidery machine stitching out design. What was I thinking?

    Oh, I also meant to mention that Connecting Threads is having a huge sale, which includes Batiks at $4.16 a yard!!! Not affliated just posting a source. I have bought from them in the past including Batiks, and they have good quality stuff.

    Here is the link to their website: www.connectingthreads.com
    And here is the direct link to the Batik sale (while supplies last): http://www.connectingthreads.com/Fab...t2--BatiksSale

    First block...

    I made one of the first block I had planned. I am so nervous about being exact enough. Wondering what you all think!

    I like it but then I think I made a set of 12 that would go well with yours. It might even be the same type of pattern. It is lovely and very nice colors.

    Love those fabrics. I may even have pieces of them in my stash. This is giving me ideas on ways to sash these blocks together. Using all the batik scraps, cutting them into squares and using them as the sashing on the blocks or use as borders. So excited, lets see some more.

    I've been sewing like crazy, in between all the other stuff we all do. Have 2 sets of 12 done, working on the third and the 4th is in the washing machine. Will post pics soon. This is great to send all the blocks in and then get all the blocks back in 1 shot. Thank you so much pinklotus for doing this

    Morning - looking at everyones blks - they look awesome. Thought I had two sets done, but seeing everyones 12 blk set went back to read directions and see I need 12 for a set. Oh well, have them done at least. Gonna try and see if I could get another set done by deadline. Thanks for hosting.

    Sorry everyone, can't get this pic thing down too well. Had these on a design wall but if you go to my albums, just click on the batik one that is listed. They're all pictured there.

    QuilterMamma is rip roaring through all her swap blocks at lightening speed! What an incentive to just get 'er done.
