Using left over bits and pieces of fabrics can be a lot of fun. I have found that the scrappier the better....they really develope an attitude that shouts out at you and grabs hold...and you discover that "playing" with them is addictive and opens the mind to discovering over and over.

Brain is functioning....
I kept looking at the these pieces which were the excess trimmed away while cutting the 60degree angles. Knowing that there had to be a way to use them in this project. So I began the brain function called creativity.
Within a short time, I figured out how to place them right sides together.
After pressing the seams open, I had a ready made piece....that could be cut into
two extra strips. As you can see it creates areas that have two fabrics in a couple of sections. Being that this is a totally scrappy project....it will work great. Adding a variety and interest.
I am off once again to sew strips together. Who knows where this project is going to go.......
