Marsha-SM:

Hope this posts - have not even been able to get on the site the last 2 days especially through email connections and have been getting the dreaded SORRY message when I have posted recently.  I don't repost until I have checked if the message has actually posted in spite of the warning - and it usually has!!!  That stops some of the duplicate posts. 

I don't understand this problem so many say they have on this site.  I have QCA on my favorites list, and go to it that way, have never had this kind of problem, and don't have to sign in either.  But then I don't get the email notifications, either, I just go to "Not Read" and keep track of pages there, see no need for all the emails! I usually go here in the evenings, but like today, when I get on earlier, I still never had a problem.  Also, I still have IE 8--wonder if I can renew on line, afraind to try!

Bonita, I love how your quilt came together.  The aqua band is the perfect touch to bring out the blues of your quilt.  I believe this was MQ 6 - Bittersweet.  Your border print really ties it all together.  A very cheerful quilt!

Your MQ came together beautifully, Bonita.  I should start that one one of these days.  I still have that fabric set aside, but I never got started on it.

swedeami:
I went to a series of classes called scrap therapy and the first project was to organize scraps.  I cut scraps into 1.5", 2.0"' 2.5"', 3.0" scraps and 5" strips and squares.  I asked about 4" squares and the teacher said there aren't many quilt patterns that call for 4" anything.

Karen, NOW you tell me!  I guess I pulled my sizes out of the air.  I went with 2 1/2 in strips of varying lengths, and squares of 2.5, 4.5, and 6.5 inches.

So now that yours are cut and organized, do you find you use them?

I have SO many 2 1/2 strips that I am going to have to invest in a book of scrappy jelly roll patterns.  Has anyone printed such a thing?

Absolutely I use them now.  Besides, after ironing, cutting, sorting, etc. I can tell you every scrap I have!  There are lots of books about scrappy quilts, but don't know if I have seen scrappy jelly roll quilts.  Like everything else, thank god there are no quilting 'laws' so if those are sizes you find you use the most, go for it!

thanks everyone for the comments. The other teacher said DGD teacher wore it around the class like a cape. I guess she liked it.

Next question...

How does one store hundreds of 2 1/2 strips?  Should I try to roll them up in color families like the ones we purchase?  An alternative thought is that I could host a group for  "strip poker" as we played it in Branson, and then I could just send all my strips to other quilters' homes.

MNnancy,   

  I'll help you fold or roll those!! and then pack them in my car to take home!!!  I don't have a stash yet, as when I buy material I'm always so excited to get them started that they don't stay on my shelves very long.  Debbie-do is trying to get me to buy material to just increase my stash!!  So funny, it sits for a few months, then gets cut to be made into something.  I haven't done a lot with 2 1/2 " strips yet, except to sew the strips together then cut into squares for a Puppy quilt.  It was too cute.

Enjoy family, friends and hobbies

I fold mine up and stack them in the see-through plastic shoe boxes you can get at WalMart pretty cheap.  I just sort them by light, medium and darks.  I also keep the batik strips in a box by themselves.

I am working on a quilt today. I'm forcing myself to get at least one UFO quilted and I picked the huge top I made from the Fall Charm Swap. I love the quilt but am dreading forcing this monster through my machine. 

Here it is draped over my cutting table so I can pin the layers. Almost done with the pinning and hope to start quilting this afternoon. I'll do an easy and fast all over meander.


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
