This quilt arose out of nothing more meaningful than an urge to use up some of the 1.5 inch strips I had collected while trimming down scraps. I keep all my scraps in plastic drawer organizers, and that particular drawer didn't want to close anymore. I was going to just throw some of them together to make quick donation quilt and move on with things. As I started randomly sewing strips together, I had fun remembering where all the fabrics had been used before and watching them come together in unlikely combinations. The more I sewed, the more I enjoyed the results until I was out of strips and still wanting to make more blocks. I even put together a tutorial so other people could follow along.
