never say no.

My advice to you.
Never say no to fabric.
These flannel scraps were not given to me...I bought them...
cheap!
3 1/2" wide strips. All different lengths.
They looked like they were leftovers from someone's project.
I love these colors!!!
So I bought them!!!!

I cut a few more 3 1/2" strips from my leftovers...
I made sure those red pieces were cut shorter.
I like the little pieces of red here and there!
So.... there was SOME thought put into this one.
NOT MUCH, though. ;)
OooooH! I had so much fun piecing this together.
It was like doing a fabric jigsaw puzzle!!
Fun. fun!!!
And when I was done with the puzzle....
I didn't have to put it back into a box!!
I now get to quilt it and give it away!!!
The fun never stops!

  8. this is exactly what I love about scraps :) I always take the scraps too. I love laying them out and seeing what suddenly pops and goes together.

    I love the reds and blues in this quilt.

  11. You have just given me another reason why not to throw out scraps - no matter how small.
