Yes, I know that I missed a week in there but for those of you that are following along it'll be okay. We have a season to finish this. For those tuning into the archives, disregard that first part.
Week 6 assignment : sew your 2.5" strips into three long strips by the short ends. Sew either straight across with a 1/4" seam allowance or at an angle and clip the excess. Either way you'll end up with some unruly pieces. Start twining these into a ball. Keep going cutting more strips and adding to the girth of the ball until you have three 6-8" wide balls. You are more than welcome to keep going with it though, the larger the ball the larger the finished rug.
