free fabric.

One man's trash....

Is MY KIND of treasure!!!

16 squares are now cut 10"x10"....
ready to go!!!
I think I'll add little stars in the cornerstones
with that red fabric in the photo above.

Is this your kind of treasure too???
I just can't believe someone
GAVE these already sewn together strips
 AWAY!!!!

I really should be packing for a big trip to...
ALASKA on Tuesday!!!!

I'm very good at AVOIDING the necessary
with
scraps of fabric!!!

  7. What a great find!!! I love finding treasures like that!! As for packing, You will get it done. :O) Our weather has been in the mid 50's for weeks here in the Mat-Sue valley just 45 miles north of Anchorage Alaska. We have had more clouds but not to much rain. Have a great trip. Maybe I'll see you in a quilt shop!:O)
