And then what did I do? Cut the wide strips into blocks, of course. I've been meaning to make a strip quilt using scraps, which (let's face it) I have plenty of. Out came the green scrap bucket and I cut strips of 2½", 2", and 1½".
This is what the green bucket looks like now. I forgot to take a before picture, but the yellow bucket is a good example of what it looked like.
I tossed a few of those yellow scraps into the quilt, and the quilt found it's name:
X's and O's.
And a project is well on its way to the longarm. Hopefully they will begin their visit tomorrow.
