Seems like lots of quilters are working on scrap quilts at the moment. That got me thinking. I've got a big bag of fabric strings. I can't start a big quilt project with lots of cutting at the moment but the strings are ready to go. They just need to be trimmed to fit the project.
What is a fabric string? I expect the definition varies from among quilters but my definition is a strip of left over fabric which is at least 3/4 inches wide but no wider than 2 1/4 inches.
I also keep a bag of 2 1/2 inch strips. That's the width of a standard jelly roll strip and there are lots of quilt patterns that use this size. I sometimes cut wider fabric scraps into squares or rectangles but lately I've just been saving it in one of my bins, separated by color.
I've got 2 projects in the works where I am using this bag of strings. Somehow I expect I'll still have some left when both quilts are done!
