Quilter's Spaghetti...

...or what my friend Keri and I call "shards."  The little trimmings from straightening up your cuts.  Most are 1/4" wide or so, some up to 1/2", all batiks, from Bruce's quilt below.  Can you use these?  I hate to throw such a pretty pile away.  If you can use these in a project, post a comment (make sure I can email you through a link or post your address).  If there is more than one person interested, I will do a drawing this Friday and will happily pop them in an envelope and send them off!

I made 2 rope covered baskets, and those would work for covering the rope. Have you tried that? Lots of fun!!! There's another blog that has shown the baskets, in case you want to see what they look like. PattySA@comcast.net

Hey, Patty, I thought I was the recipient of ALL your bits and pieces. Actually, I've got lots and I use lots in a collage technique that I call "ortwork" (based on the British term, orts, meaning scraps).

Oh, Deb! You are the winner! Figures I'd forget about choosing a winner for my very first drawing! Sorry about that. I'll email you for contact info and toss the spaghetti in the mail. LOL. Aloha, Dianna
