Playing......

This is the pile of trimmings from the strip sets of the warm 16 patch blocks.  I trimmed them into nice straight strips whatever width I could get out of each of them.  I'll probably make mug rugs or journal covers from them.

That will be a good use of the leftover strips. Chris

Leftover bits like that are so fun to play with. I feel sorry for people who throw them away.

What wonderful inspiration to see the start of a new idea from the trimmings of your current project!

Journal covers or mug rugs make such nice gifts. You are the 'Queen' of using every little scrap from every big or small quilt you make. For all the new comer's to your blog, I wonder if they know this is nothing new for you to do.

I just love working with leftover scraps, but it seems to begin never-ending projects all the time for me since my attention span is very short. Can't wait to see what you do with these.

I would love to see you make a quilt out of the scraps. Maybe slice in between with skinny solid strips. Maybe frame a medallion style one with them. I believe you can do something really neat with them.

Beautiful strips. Mug rugs are a good idea. Mine usually end up in hot pads.
