    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.
    Sounds good to me! It's a natural! Good way to use them up. I had a lady send me some leftovers from her quilt one time and wanted me to do something with them. The strips were 5/8" wide. I used a scant 1/8th and sewed them all in strip sets and made a checkbook cover and bookmarks with them for her. It was a challenge and I loved it! A scant 1/8th sounds like it wouldn't hold but if you open the seams and iron it gives the seam more stability. Less chance to ravel out. I used to use 1/8th on all my billfolds when I did pieced fronts on them with the finished squares being 1/4".

    Working on my Doll Quilt for Rie I hope! I have to be in the mood and I sometimes just can't get into it. But I want to get started. I know what I want to do or at least the basic ideas.

    I'm also trying to get my house straightened up. I get my almost 6 mo old Colton tomarrow for the weekend and I need to have my messes picked up!! We are pilers both of us and I have to go back and figure out where to store stuff. I hate making those decisions! LOL

    Rhonda, my fingers are twitching just looking at all of your great ideas and mini tutorial.

    I make quilts for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initative and they must be no bigger than 9" x 12". http://www.alzquilts.org/
    Your ideas are just perfects. Monthly, 20 of the quilts are auctioned and a bunch of the others have set prices. To date, 7,000 have been made with ALL of the proceeds going for Alzheimer's Research. (yes, you heard that right-100%--it is entirely a volunteer effort).

    Thanks for sharing with us and giving me ideas.
    (really wish I didn't have company tonight and have to clean house, would rather sew. :shock: )

    someone else told me about this. I think it was Chele. I have been wanting to make something to send but will have to fit it in time wise. This is a great thing to do. I used to work as a nurse's aide and worked with many alzheimer's residents. So I can really relate to this.

    Oh someone else like me!! I have a week to "clean" b/4 DS and family come for a week. Where will it all go? Oh they know me by now, but it's the kid proofing that makes it tough.

    Yeah with Colton being 6 mos now he will be crawling soon and that is the tough age! LOL I am not a great housekeeper and we have a tile floor. It isn't easy to keep it clean. But I am glad he should be walking by the time winter comes around. My floors get so cold in the winter because we have concrete floors.

    Just what I needed. I am overrun with scraps. I put my strips on hangers after having to do a marathon ironing session, when I kept them in bags. Always looking for new ways to use them. Thanks

    Rhonda,

    I have thought of using your templates to cut squares out of strips that have been sewn together, and then put them into a nine patch on an angle.
