I tried piecing the scraps on phone book pages...didn't like the feel of that.
Then I tried piecing the scraps on an old roll of adding machine tape...PERFECT!
Just wide enough (3") to use up all these old bits and pieces. I am cutting the tape in lengths of about 12" as a foundation to piece onto, and usually have two or three strips going at the same time. SO FUN!
Here are the first 8 blocks trimmed up. I have no idea how I will set them together, maybe like chinese coins?
Maybe I should use a setting with sashing like Mary's - click here to see her coin quilts.
I won't be able to sew rows together until I figure out how to treadle a good 1/4" seam, so I have lots of time to make blocks while I practice.
It will be fun to have a quilt made entirely on my Treadle!
