In the last week, I have been blessed with several tubs of fabric scraps. So many ideas for fidget quilts have popped into my head.
From my cousin, there were scraps of themed fabrics. Michigan State fabrics with the Spartan mascot which would go so well with all the greens and grays I have. Detroit Tigers fabric which must be pieced with the Tigers logo polar fleece I saved from another project and as I was grabbing fabrics to match, I found a tiger stripe fleece… perfect!
And then there were the tubs from my mom. Polyesters and silks that were a walk down memory lane. An elegant purple from my sister’s prom dress, a pale blue from her bridesmaids’ dresses, the blue, terry-cloth/velvour from my mom’s church dress that she wore with a gold and white belt, Then there was the tiny square of brick red polyester from one of my mom’s shirts, a shirt that she wore until it was threadbare. So gift ideas appeared faster than I could sort them out. I have three nieces who are expecting. What sentimental fabrics could I put together for baby gifts for them?
I could really use another hour or six to put a dent in these fabric piles. My boxes are taking up a wall of my bedroom and I should try to reduce that.
And that doesn’t even get me started on the books I should be writing…
