taming a little more

not much fun to show you
I am taming the fabric stash a little more

remember these two bags for a dollar each at the 
quilt show?  yeah
lots of pieces and strips and goodies
I did end up throwing out some teeny tiny
things that I was NOT going to use
yes I did Jacky!

the rest I just sorted quick into my color bins
and if there were squares or triangles cut
I put them in my parts drawer
if it was a small piece of fabric I cut it up
and put it into the parts drawer too
5 inch blocks
2.5 inch blocks
3.5 inch blocks
and strips of all sizes are what I make
I find those are the ones most used
and how fun to have some squares all 
ready to sew!




strips are so versatile too
this was a mat for the cats
I also made mugrugs




this little bit of fun ended up as a leaf potholder




this would use strips too of different sizes
and is on the to do list as well
don't cha love the teabag zipper pull?


more strip fun





and who doesn't love a log cabin
strips again........


this too was made with strips





and even these
so you can see folks how someone elses strips
and pieces can be appealing
you get to play with new fabrics
and make something fun

cant get any better than that right?
