    I make these quite often. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-120111-1.htm I use my scraps and scraps donated from others at my guild. This one is a crib size and although I still need to trim some threads, it's ready to go. This was all pieced on used computer paper that would have been shredded. I pieced it all on my vintage Singer 319W and FMQ it on my Janome 9000.

    These are fun to do. I have several made. Makes it easy when DH comes home asking for a baby gift for coworkers.

    I have a hard time getting excited about doing anything but scrappy these days. Your scrappy has great colors!

    I start with the center strip (mainly I do black) and work of those edges. I don't have a certain size strip as the objective is to use what I have;> I use very small, probably an inch all the way up to an occasional 3 or 4 inch. No worries, no stress, easy peasy.
