    I'd like to know also...don't understand about using phone book pages.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    I used a small phone book, gently tore out the pages and used them as foundations. Started with the black strip first and built it up from there. Paying no attention what so ever to width of the pink strip. I think it helped make it more wonky. Then I turned it over and using my rotary cutter..trimmed around the original shape of the page. Very forgiving and fast!
