Strip "Tease"

My local quilt guild has a monthly block exchange.  It's sort of like a quilt block lottery and the price of entry is one quilt block.  The November exchange block was  a diagonal strip-pieced 8.5" square block.  The only guidelines were: 1) No strips wider than two inches; 2) Use Fall colors; and 3)  Block should measure 8.5".


And I won 12 blocks!  Now I need to decide what to do with them.  Table topper? Table runner? Pot holders?  Scrappy mini wallets or coin purses?


I'm open to any suggestions from my creative blogging buddies!

Now, if I could only win the REAL lottery!

  1. What a fun idea, and good for you for winning the "lottery" of blocks!

    I don't have any suggestions as to what to do with them, but I like seeing them all in a group there in the photo. I'm sure you'll have fun creating some new items with them :).

  2. Yes, those will make a beautiful table runner

  3. Love the strips! I've made lots of things using that technique. That would be a great way to make some pot holders. Which I should actually make for myself because mine are looking a bit tired.

  4. Wow! The table runner, will vote for it!
    I can't wait to see the table runner!
