Default Need easy 2.5" strip patterns!

I'm still reorganizing my sewing room. Boy, I've found things I haven't seen for years! I've also found lots and lots of 2.5" strips; didn't know I had so many, lol. I would like to know what are some of the strip patterns you have tried? (One pattern I don't want is the one that is just long strips sewn together.) Thanks in advance for your help.

Try Moda Bakeshop. Sweet Menagerie is a very easy pattern. I'll try to upload a picture, but my computer hasn't been very cooperative this morning.

The Lintotts have some great books with 2.5 inch strip patterns. They are easy and pretty. The books are reasonable on Amazon.

Strip Tube there are a lot of variations and they go together quickly.

I recently did a sewing studio clean up too! It was like finding a hidden treasure! LOL! Try these patters:
I bought one of their books and they give great directions!
Be sure to post your pics, I get the best inspiration from my fellow quilters!

Thanks for the responses. I'm getting ready to leave to babysit our youngest DGS for a few hours; I'll check these sites when I return.
