Since then I have made several projects with them, but it seems that as soon as I turn out the lights and close the door they multiply. Since I belong to a quilt guild that does charity quilts I decided to see if I couldn't get these left overs under control. If I make a couple quilt tops and provide the binding they provide backs, batting, and quilt them. They then are given out to various needy organizations throughout our community. Last October they gave over 220 quilts out to five different organizations.
I cut 75 [3 inch by 12-1/2 inch] strips, pretty much 2 of each print. Yes, I have that much of the fabric!
I pulled this Modern Handcrafted picture off the internet. It seems like the perfect choice to use up these fabrics.
Then I purchased two yards of Kona Shadow, it is a light grey that works well with not only some of the prints with white in them, but others with off whites and grey and even tans. I had enough still to cut some binding as well. In fact I have enough [two giant size zip- lock bags] left overs to make some more.
At least this an attempt to somehow get things under control so I am linking up with
