So the other day after seeing this on Patty's blog, and this at Kathie's, I decided to add another piece to the list of " pieces I cut after washing fabrics".
A while ago Kathie shared her strip cutting strategies with me and while I haven't started cutting my strips yet, I did take her initiative and start cutting all the tiny pieces for quilts I wanted to make in the future. Every time I wash a newly purchased fabric and iron, I cut my template pieces for a tumbler quilt, pyramid quilt, and a few NJ 12 triangle blocks.
The other day I found 2 great charm packets by Tula Pink on Etsy that were perfect for a bright tumbler quilt.... Flutterby and Nest. When they arrived I sat down after dinner while watching tv and started cutting the above tumblers. These are great collections, so I didn't want to waste anything. This left me with these stacks of lovely leftovers! 80 pieces each and W-H-A-T to do?
I'm thinking something like a very wonky log cabin inspired squares? As soon as I make massive amounts of flying geese today for something else I might just delve into the pile and see what comes out. I certainly never considered tossing these as they are not small.
