Delightful--that's what it means to me to go shopping in my own fabric stash. I intended to build a colorful quilt, and end up making 3 scrappy queen size quilts!
Look at this pile of vibrant fabric remnants I re-discovered in my sewing studio. Ah-ha! And they were just sitting there in the armoire for a long long time. Folded stacks of 1/4 and 1/2 yard hunks of fabric, waiting patiently for a second chance.
Quickly I grabbed up lots of yellow, orange, hot pink, and red. Then selected compliment colors for each: purples, blues, and I salt and peppered it with a bit of sage green, and a black and white stripe.
My recipe: cut remnants into 2.5" wide strips, and mixed thoroughly. I saved all the 1.5" cabbage and gave it to my friend Jerry who looms beautiful rugs. The slivers, threads and lint went to the waste management truck.
