Laura, that's what I'm thinking...going to put whatever I make in a plactic bin an keep saving them up.  When I'm bored I'll take them out and see what I can do with them.  

I have been checking to see what weights we have and I think I have 5 lb out in Fred's workshop, but also think I have 2 or three lb here in the house.  Going to try this method for cutting.

I got my creative grids rulers today. They really are awesome. I'm making a bargello right now and the cuts went smoothly. No slip. I'm thrilled.

I just had a flashback to the past. When I learned dressmaking as a kid from Mom we had newspaper patterns she made that we weighted down with glass jars of canning while cutting the pieces. My handiest "weight" is a sealed 40 oz of liquid courage that weighs just over 3 lbs. I will be doing a test run with the weight later today.

Candis, are you using JR strips, or yardage?   I saw a fun bargello to make with the JR strips and I think I'm going to try that one.

I used two JR. Sharon. My Grand Daughter wanted a colorful rainbow quilt, so I did one. I will put it in my gallery. It was just a simple one I found on the web. A free pattern. Fun to do.

I watched the Donna Jordan video and liked the idea of a weight. My long ruler was always slipping. So to the closet I went and found my 5 lb weight and it works just fine. Thanks for the ideas here.

Candis, that is so pretty.  I do love the bargello, and this seems like a simpler way to do one.  I have two JRs, 20 strips each, 2 of each fabric ranging from blue to light blue to white.  I found a pattern online that it seems will work.  Now to find the pattern.  I think I saved it.  Yours is so nice and the rainbow effect is really cool.

You know I love my Bloc loc rulers, but I also wish they had the creative grid technology. That way they double stay in place . I love them both .

Thanks CV. The rainbow Bargello was super easy. I have made several Bargello and love making them. This one came together very fast. Looking forward to seeing yours.

Yikes! I paid $29 + tax for the 6 1/2" ruler and it has yet to make any HST's! I thought at that price that I could set it on my cutting table and take a nap. I did use it to trim some string blocks to discover that it's not really 6 1/2" square. Duh! I should have figured that one out. I assumed I had to trim after cutting in half. This ruler is for before it's cut in half.

When you have a zillion HSTs to make, there is nothing like the Bloc Loc.  I stammered at the price when at the big quilt fair in Paducah with Jean & Gloria, but Gloria convinced me to cough it up.  I did, a little relunctantly, but man, I am so glad I did -- especially during the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilts.  You know she will always have at least 200 HSTs.
