Strips & Squares Saturday Linky Party

I am trying something new............
There are times when I just want to sew....sew....sew....
and when there are strips already cut then it is so easy to grab them and sew!!
I got the idea to do a linky party where we can share projects of what we are doing using strips and squares.. AND today is the first day.

In my last post I mentioned about cutting strips with my Go and that is certainly a fast and fun way to get those strips.  Then the fun begins to use them in so many ways.  The following photos are just playing with different possibilities.  The first two photos are something new I had not done before.  I got the idea from the book Strip Smart Quilts by Kathy Brown.

 Then I always love doing 4 patches...
 and I made them into a 16 patch..
 then I cut some squares and mixed squares and 4 patches...
 I have a box of twosies and this morning I made some chains of 4 patches...
I want to know how you are using your strips and squares


  1. I have been working on the Traffic Jam pattern from Pat Sloan. I am doing it as a leaders and enders project and I am currently sewing twosies into foursies. Soon I can press and pick some background fabric. Then I will make blocks.
    I have done tons of strip projects. I will see if I can find some pics.

  2. I love working with strip projects and yours is wonderful!

  3. I love this. I will see if I can't get working on one of my UFO's and link up here dearie! Love what you are doing!
