    Love your tute. I have plenty of those dratted strips and will use them this way. Much easier than sewing them to a backing. Thx.

    Wow! What a great idea! I'm fairly new to quilting and was wondering what I was going to do with all those odds and ends of strips left from other projects. Now I know! Thanks, Rhonda, for one of the best ideas I've seen anywhere!

    Rhonda what great ideas :thumbup: It's a terrific way to use up that extra fabric that isn't enough to really make an entire project. I love it and bookmarked your tute.

    ok Rhonda, you are doing it to me again. I already made a small doll size quilt making just squares, then put a black sashing between them. Then I started making 6" squares and just do a few every now and then, not knowing what I'd do with them yet. Now after looking at your pictures and tut, I would never have thought of using these for a border. You are just a never ending wealth of information. Thanks.

    Rhonda,
    Here I thought I was unique! Well I am sort of anyway.. :roll: I just began sewing strips about 2 months ago. I have not finished all my stripping projects, but I am now on to 'mile a minute'. My scraps just seem to be mulitplying faster than I can keep up. I tried to get the guild ladies to try 'stripping' but most have no interest in it! ;) Thanks for sharing your projects and your expertise.

    Thank you, Rhonda, for more good ideas. Guess I'll just have to make a doll bed quilt for my 3-year-old DGD. She already has my doll bed, so now she needs a quilt, and your ideas are just in time! :)

    Your tutorial is awesome! Thanks for sharing all the great ideas with us! Makes me wanna go and play in my scraps!

    I sometimes get in the mood to try to use as much of my fabric for a quilt as possible. And every now and then, I manage to hit the nail on the head!
    Then, there are other times that I can't get my head out of the box and just do what is called for. In this Warm Wishes quilt top, I had plenty of left-over strip blocks because I was originally going to make it larger. I cut the blocks down and made diagonals and chopped, sewed and chopped some more to add these borders!
    It was so much fun! I wish I had a creative enough mind to do this all the time.

    Very nice...thank you....what a wonderful way to use extra strips left over from projects. I'm always looking for reasons not to throw fabric scraps away!

    I find I have narrow strips left over after trimming a quilt before binding. These would work great with this method and if you wanted to be a little wonky don't worry about cutting them precisely! HMM maybe I should try it.
