Through member volunteers, my Guild provides a 6" square of fabric to all members each month and they call it cotton candy - cute huh. Shhh....don't tell anyone but last month when I saw that there were purple squares in the basket I took two. ;)
Another member was standing near me when I picked up the squares and I mentioned that I really needed to expand my purple pickin's and she volunteered to give me some of her scraps. I happily accepted the offer but I made sure to let her know that I really meant scraps because I do have a ton of fabric in my stash - just not a lot of purple bits and pieces. I plan on living to be at least 100 and I don't think I will ever run out of fabric. :0
Well, Susan came over to my house and gave me all of this and they are not just small pieces. Thanks Susan, I particularly like the one on the right. :)
Not only did I receive scraps from Susan but my quilty sister Cheryl gave me a big bag of scraps and hunks and chunks of fabric last week as well. She has no intention of ever using up such small scrappy pieces so she saves them for me and every so often I get a bag of fabric gold.
Over the next while I do plan to make many scrappy, crumby, stringy quilts but it is not likely to start until after the new year.
You know...one quilter's trash is another quilters treasure!
