    Thank you for the great tut! I have several containers of scraps and always intend to do something with them. Now I will! Again, thank you.

    This is mostly what I do with all my scraps. I love to use up the fabric doing these. I just hate to waste fabric.
    Very nice looking quilt.

    this is sort of like paper piecing, right? Do those of you that use phone book pages take remove them when the top is done? I can see leaving the pellon or muslin even tho it would make for a heavier quilt.

    Sval: I remove them when I finish each block. Many people leave them in until everything is sewn together because it stabilizes the bias. It never seemed to me that it made that much difference.

    The Amazing Jelly Roll Quilt by Three Dudes gives you almost the same pattern, but uses long strips or Jelly Rolls to start. Gives you a lot less scrap. But if you want to use up a lot of small pieces, this one is the way to go.

    I use all kinds of fabric sizes using this method with phone book pages and make doll quilts for our local quilt shop's Christmas party donation. Each one comes out different and they are so much fun and easy to make. I usually take them to do at retreat so I don't need to think about what I am doing.
    Happy Quilting

    I recently made a baby quilt for my niece's new baby girl. It was a string quilt using MSQC papers for foundation. They worked really well.

    I really like that look. I am more for controlled scrappy, which would be easy to do with this method. Thank you!

    Thanks, Judy. We are awaiting Mystery Quilt #7. For a variation on the strip quilt, try the God's Eye.
    Yes, my squares are not the same size yet.

    Great tutorial.... I just love scrappy quilts and this is such a great way to use up some of the strips that tend to pile up. Thanks.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Love this tute! Thank you! I've also heard of using fabric softener sheets that have gone through the dryer as foundation for this type of quilt...blocks would be a little smaller, though.
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!

    that's exactly how I am making the window curtain my DH requested, EXCEPT than my foundation is batting squares. I'll back it with plain muslin so I get a stained glass effect when the sun shines through it.

    I really loved your tute and I am in the middle of making a scrappy QAYG and I am enjoying it a lot. Your tute was very informational and any beginner will be able to understand the directions. Thanks for sharing.
