What are you most proud of? My goal this year is to reduce my overflowing stash of 1.5", 2.5" wide fabric strips, and less than 1/4 yard hunks of fabric leftover from other projects. When I do craft shows I take along my 1916 Singer Model 128, 3/4 Size, Hand Crank Sewing Machine (people powered, non-electric sewing machine). I demonstrate hand crank sewing--joining 2.5" x 8" fabric strips end to end until I have a length of 20 ft. or so. Then I roll them up and take them back to the studio to cut again, and make fabric panels to build scrappy blocks for future queen size quilts, cell phone carriers, and much loved over-sized potholders. I use every morsel of fabric I buy. The smallest pieces I give to my friend who incorporates colorful fabrics in rag rug balls to loom rugs. Did you know--it takes a 2 lb. ball of rag rug fabric strips to loom a 3x 4ft. rug? What advice would you give someone starting this project? I highly recommend Cyndi Souder's class "Hitting the Mark: Perfect Quilting Every Time". Get ready to be inspired. I sure was.
