sunday snapshots


simple checkerboard design


different colorschemes


all 8" finished size



january seems like the right time of the year to start downsizing my stash
I've started by cutting a lot of squares for these quilt for kids
there might even be backings to match...

lots of very tempting scrap quilts and quilt-a-longs are being posted on several blogs

at least I'm making scraps from cutting these, building a scrap stash to play with later!

Wish you all a nice sunday

Nice! I totally agree about down sizing the stash! I went through mine last weekend and have a jam packed bag full of fabric to use in classes. It feels good to get rid of the old and look forward to the new :)

Trying to go on a fabric diet at least until I use up a bit more...

Dree said...

This is exactly the kind of thing I need to be doing! I have so much fabric I have bought because I loved it, and now I don't even know what I have any more.

Looks like fun! I think I may use your idea for some donation quilts later on this year. Thank you!

January seems to be a perfect time for organising and re-organising and tidying and sorting. Your quilts are beautiful - gorgeous colour schemes. x Cathy

Great quilts for kids and a nice way to show off the fabrics too. I know charity quilters that do the same thing from donations to make backings.

Sharon said...

Very cute fabrics, and cute quilts! Some child will love looking at all the fun things in their quilt. Good for you. And you must have an awesome stash!

Jennifer said...

I'm with you on down-sizing my stash! So far... I haven't bought any new fabric. 23 days has to be a record for me!

Love the simple squares!

I like how you combined those colorful blocks. They're pleasing to the eye. I'm sure the kids would love them. I can see variety of reds on your blocks. Don't they bleed onto others when you wash them?
