the lowly square


do you ever look at your stash and think
I will never be able to live long enough to sew
this all into something?
yea I do
as you get older I think you reflect more
and of course when people know you sew
well  you know
they gift you with more LOL
but it is so much fun to sew with fabric you 
didnt purchase.
why? I think it is the colors you would not normally use
the excitement of not the same old stuff
and just the challenge to use it up
I have been a lucky gal
many have gifted me with fabric
Sharon, Jacky and Dianne a sewing 
buddy from way back to name a few
and the squares that are already cut? well
lets get to sewing my friend!
I made that flimsy in yellow at top
which I LOVE




started this fun red one which I also LOVE





put my woven ones into a 9 patch to mull and stew
and see if I will do more of the same
or not


alternated them in blue




made a bag for the niece one year



cut them tiny and made mini 9 patches for a cool border
(not it is not finished wise guys who have seen this
quilt before LOL)



but also pinned groups of 5 likes
to make this someday
need a wall to place them out though



put some in Tom turkey runner



and some in cat quilt for the bed



cat mats for messy eaters



and even some into pincushions
so tell me WHY do I buy yardage
when I could just buy SQUARES?????

LOL
