I have been creating and selling the 5″ by 108″ strips for over 3 years, and they are becoming very popular with all quilters.
And as the (true) story goes, this idea was introduced to me by one of my (elder) sisters. So, as I cut strips from each of my 108″ wide fabrics, and designed the rolling of the strips, and the tying of the strips with same color fabric. I was excited that my sisters were willing to help. As time went on, when restocking needed to be done, I conveniently was near or visiting, one of my sisters. (or did I conveniently scheduled restocking whenever I was with a sister) , either way, there is always a sister that is willing to help.
Thanks to all of you customers out there, and my sisters, I have come up with a name for the 5″ by 108″ strips. They will be known as:
(did you get it? I cut them and my sister rolls them)
5″ by 108″ strips
A FEW IDEAS HOW STRIPS CAN BE USED:
5″ wide by 108″ long SEAMLESS STRIPS
To begin with, these Strips will make a great border with NO SEAMS to worry about.
At the same time, you can enlarge your quilt up to 9″ wider by adding a strip to each side
OR, add to the length to make 9 inches longer TOO
Also, you can bind your whole quilt when you cut 2 strips into FOUR 2 1/2″ by 108″ strips and have SEEMLESS binding immediately.
another key point, is that you can quick cut into Squares, Triangles, or short strips to be used in the quilt pattern
Equally important, you can quick cut into sashing and much more…
