Hmmmm. I made one of those quilts where you put together a bunch of 2.5 inch strips. Most people use a coordinated jelly roll. I pulled almost all the red, white and blue strips I had in my 2.5 inch scrap drawer, thinking that would look coordinated. So far I am not a fan. At least it gives me a good platform for practicing feathers!
Go to Patchwork Times and see what others have hung on their design walls.
