    I found a box of material up in the closet that I had cut into strips long before rotary cutters came into my life. The strips all had signs of being cut by hand, including pencil lines and uneven cutting lines from the material lifting. I must have purchased the material from Joann's, it was the only store around that carried quilting fabric. At any rate, I sewed some strips together, grabbed my 45 degree ruler and whacked away!

    I can't say that I loved the process but it did remind me of strip quilting years ago. I am not a big fan of bias sewing, too much give and not enough take. I used my 45 degree ruler and just flipped it over to make the other cut. It must be easier to use the ruler/template designed for tube cutting/quilting. I will probably do this again, the next time I find a box full of pre cut strips :D I may try it with just three colors and wider strips....

    I have those same fabrics--I think every one of them! I made a double wedding ring quilt out of some of them a few years ago. I think I bought those fabrics about 15 or 16 years ago. They do go together nicely don't they?!!!

    Turned out great. What a wonderful project for those cut-up strips! I love it when something that was put aside for a long time finally comes to life!! Thanks for posting this.

    Great!

    I also just made a table runner. You don't need that special ruler. I used a 12 inch square with 45 degree angle and just slid it up and down to cut the blocks.

    You can watch this video to learn
