I decided I really want to cut up and use whats in my scrap basket and bags this year. I will be making 4 patches, red and green nine patches , cutting strips for a few other projects I have in my mind and my postage stamp blocks. I find it easier to just cut for a few projects at once. Of course quite a few little quilts will be made too, stay tuned!
Of course swapping fabrics with a few of my friends is always fun , great variety is always a good thing, when I pulled out the bag in this little box it grew and grew instantly! I was so surprised just made me laugh maybe this is why that scrap basket never goes down!
see that gold fabric on top oh I am thrilled to have a piece of that again!
so in the bag from my friend here are some of the pieces I ironed them and started cutting into my strips for my new projects what fun quite a few fabrics I didn't have or had and used up! did you notice them in the 4 patches above? I will make a four patch from each of her fabrics to start with.
Lots of strips waiting for the next big quilt to start, I will wait till Jan 1st. hope to make the quilt in a year! thats the goal! So have you started thinking about your quilt goals for 2013?
I have had mona keeping me company all year just look at her note to me....think its time to pack her away for awhile once the calendar comes down! This bird made from an antique quilt always makes me smile too she will stay :) I just want to say thank you to all of you that sent me postage stamp squares, I really appreciate it! It was so kind of you , you all know who you are.
I have plenty now to make at least 5 more blocks.
