    Just to peck your interest the strips are from 1 inch to 3 inches in width and up to 17 inches long, sew them together to make a 17 x 17 inch square, no special cutting and I even used pieces that were pieced together as long as they fit the above criteria, heck I even sewed 2 uneven and non-matching pieces together to make 17 inches. I am at work now, so the pictures are on home computer - so hopefully by Friday night I will have the Magic Square tutorial posted. Bridge club tonight Thanks for all the comments!

    Love your scrappy string block quilts. I have made 3 and always used a foundation.
    Retired teacher, loving it.
    Love quilting also.

    Beautiful quilts, seems to me the scraps just keep growing. I made 8 last year and after making about 14 more quilts, I have lots and lots of scraps.

    Very pretty. Your scrap pile makes mine look pretty wimpy. Guess I had better collect for a spell more.

    Good to know...have a lot of already 'pieced' scraps from prior projects and think just sewing them to something else is definitely going to be a time saver...already have scraps separated in huge ziploc storage bags by (kinda) color...guess I'll just reach in to a bag at a time...woo hoo...inspiration! Thank you!!!!

    I think these are great. Gives me a good idea for using my scraps. They always seem to pile up. BTW, this is my 2,000th post on the board. Whooppee!!
