Here is what the wall quilt looked like in the morning:

 And then I got a request for tiger tails.....yup, distracted!

But then I went through my scrap bin and pulled out every string longer than 7"...and cut then down to seven inches or so. I just eyeballed it against the markings on my cutting board.


Pile o' awesome.

Here's what I did with them:

I sewed them all to WOF strips of BG. Six fit on one WOF.

Without pressing or cutting, I sewed more to the other side, being careful to mostly match sets.

Then I eyeballed the cut between sets. Cut bravely! It's only scraps.

Press. Add another strip to each side. Press again.

Add another strip of needed - after all, some pieces are more narrow than others.

And then, trim to 6 1/2"

PM shot: still need six more strip blocks, and I have to increase the size of the center to fit.

After that? Maybe a couple more block strips (top and bottom), to square things off a bit.


  1. I'm loving the free spirit feeling your putting out here. Very cool.

  2. Me, too! Lovin' the free spirit. You're very brave and it works so well for you.
