I was reading Bonnie Hunter's blog this weekend and as I was looking at all the fabulous free patterns she has on her site (www.quiltville.com, it's different from her blog), this one hit me!  It's called Strip Twist.

 You can get the pattern here

It uses bunches of 2 1/2 inch strips.  I immediately dug into some of my stash and started cutting.
This is just a SMALL portion of them.  Messy.

In less than 2 hours I was able to fill my little buckets.  One bucket is 2 1/2 in. and the other is for my next string quilt (another of Bonnie's freebies).

Neat -

Here is just one block that I finished with layout #1.

 Same block - layout #2.

I kind of like the first one but I will have to make more blocks to be sure.

Make it a great week!


  1. Love this one, what a great use for the tons of scraps I have, and I can see using it for a polymer clay cane, too. Smiles and hugs

  2. Great idea on the clay canes! Would love to see that!
