Wanted to make some strip blocks the other day, as my bag of strips was getting quite full, but didn't have any suitable fabric to use as a foundation. A rummage through the charity shops on Thursday came up with a large quantity of fairly ugly Ikea fabric for not much money - perfect for foundations. So, today, a start on some strip blocks. Not many done, though there are quite a few more in process... These are 8.5" blocks, and use variable width strips (i.e. whatever width they are in the strip bag), though I do cut the really wide ones in half down the middle. And also trim the ones which are wider at one end than the other.
