It is cold and rainy here today. I am working on several different projects, a swap package, a fast fleece shawl for a friend and finishing some have to projects. I have actually reached the point where I can start to think about some of my want to projects. One of my want to projects is to use up a honeybun. That is a wheel of 1 1/2 inch strips. They are about 44 inches long, there are 42 strips in all from the same line of fabric I used in my pinwheel quilt. I have a few small bits and pieces of some of the fabrics.
My problem is that I don't know what to do with a honey bun. I can find lots of patterns for the 2 inch strips and charm packs but not so much for these narrower cuts. Any suggests?
And another question. Obviously I am going to have cut fabric to mix in with these strips. How do I judge the seam allowance on the pinked edges? Do I line up the smooth cuts with the outside edge, peak, of the pinking or with the inside, valley, of the pinked fabric? Do I cut my other strips at 1.5 inches or do I compensate for the pinks? Does anyone know how they are designed to work?
