It didn't take long for me to unroll the strips so that I could really get a good look at the fabrics...and they're all wonderful and perfect! I love the reds, the pinks, the blues, the greens, the browns, and the soft prints. There is a tonal beige (not pictured here) that goes great with everything...I think I'm going to need a bolt of that one for my stash.
I already had a project in mind...I went through all of my books and patterns looking for the one that would use as much of each strip as possible while showcasing each fabric. And really I had no waste...I already have a project in mind for the few scraps that remained after cutting.
I plan on sewing all the blocks this weekend. Then, I'll have to put them away until September when the fabric becomes available to purchase by the yard (so I can get the border, backing, and binding fabrics). It will be worth the wait, though. This fabric is amazing--really amazing!
Have a wonderful weekend...hope you get to sew!
