This is a good way to use up that left over fabric! No strips over 2.5 inches in width

Make 4 - string quilts blocks that measure 8.5 inches when completed..... Start with a 9 inch base (cotton fabric or muslin- DO NOT add batting) and add the strips in a diagonal line...cut the blocks down to 8.5 inches before sending to your partner

If you haven't made these blocks before, there are several tutorials on line

You are only making the blocks ... do not join blocks together!

I've only done this with paper because it adds massive stability. Would it be okay to use that instead?

@Chaosfay - Sorry but you need to use fabric. Fabric works very well.

The Tutorial link isn't working for me?

Tutorial link not working. Do the strips need to be parallel in straight lines? All four blocks to one partner? Thank you for helping an old woman.

I don't know what happened.....but the link is working now! The strips are diagonal as shown in the picture.....Yes 4 blocks to one partner.
