Taming the 2.5" Strips from the Scrappy Trip Along

As I'm making blocks for my Finding Nemo Scrappy Trip Along quilt I am throwing all the cutoff 2.5" strips in a basket.  The basket is getting messy.  I decided to sew them all together end for end and see how long the one big strip is and either make a big scrap quilt similar to a jelly roll race quilt or like

 
Here's the overflowing bin of 2.5" pieces at lengths shorter than 16".
 
 
Chain piece all them together.  Make one long strip.
 

Roll.  That's much better!  All tamed.  These are the scraps for only three of the Scrappy Trips strips.

Happy Mother's Day!
