This is what I decided to do with my left-over 1 1/2 inch strips. I sewed them together with a 45 degree angle and sewed until they were all in one strip. That strip was 992 inches long. Then I pressed it....yes I really did. Then sewed it end to end. Then cut it in half. Repeat. I did that until it was 82 X 15.75 (I can tell my seams were too wide since it should have been 16 inches.) I decided to cut that into 8th's and use them as blocks. Framing that with a dark green brought the quilt up to a more useful size.
I am working on this quilt when I need to rest from quilting. Here's a picture of the top third of the quilt:Hey, it looks like a table runner; I could stop here.
It is truly a stash quilt, I'm using what I have; trying to whittle down my Christmas fabric collection....
The back will be a collection of 1/4 yard cuts that I've had for years....maybe I'll sew them the same way I did the blocks...but with 90 degree angles. This will be the third Christmas back pieced from stash. I might see a reduction in the pile with this. :)
(Can you tell I love experimenting with my EQ7?)
Visiting other's design walls is fun, go over to Judy's to get a list of them.
