    okay diamonds and barnbum,
    please go up to the search option at the top of the page and click. type in "string piecing" and many links will come up. they are from this forum and several explain how to do string piecing or "flip and sew". please, please try it. it is by far the easiest method you will ever use. i would explain it in my own words but i could never do as good a job as the ones who have gone before;) you will zip thru your scraps in "no time flat", as my old granny would say.

    Okay--here's a great site I found from the search--in case anyone wants to skip that part!

    http://quiltville.com/stringquiltingprimer.shtml

    Do I get an A?? :D

    Or do I have to actually apply what I learned? :?

    i'd say you definitelly get an A+++ that is a great web site. explains way better than i ever could. the only thing i did differently with the strips in my quilt, i started at one end and didn't draw a line.
    i am so anxious to see your quilt, get busy :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Thanks for the faith you have in me nana - will keep you posted - but won't be for a bit due to needing to make the birthday swap blocks plus a couple of other needed chores.

    Nanabirdmo, Love your quilt. It's wonderful, so bright & striking.
    Also I went to the site from barnbum, it is great.
    Your quilt makes me want to get into my stash tonight. LOL.
    Thanks for sharing your talents. Oh, no one will notice any error in that beautiful quilt. Besides, there isn't any errors in art....it's creative interpretation.!!!!! And anyway, no one will notice it a 20MPH...
    I really like it a lot.
    Have a great NEW YEAR everyone. Pat

    I wouldn't change a thing, it is beautiful. I like the way the dark black fabric sets off the multitude of colors. It has a very contemporary feel!
