So you sew all these little pieces together then cut a straight line for sewing? I'm trying figure out how you did
that...I love it and I'm not a modern person, or a great sewer.

Pretty darn clever, I usually throw those away, or give them to a friend, she donates them to the school for kids to use in art classes.

Thanks everyone... Appreciate all the comments....

Kat asked how i did this.. Well..... it begins with a hoarder like me. lol.. Nah.... lol

I sew all my scrap strips to phone book pages...remove paper, starch STARCH, iron, and Ill measure and cut out sqs (6.5 /9 /10/ 11in sqs... depending on how long the strips are)
usually after i make my sqs cuts, there's a strip of unused fabric.. ill trim THAT scrap into 5in, 2.5in, 1.5in OR 1 in strips. depending on whats left how wide i can get it.. it gets saved until i have multiple strips of the length i want..

in this case i wanted the 1 inch strips 65 inch long...

hope this helps..
