Preview...


Doesn't the sight of fabric snippets just make you smile?  There is just something so happy about little pieces of fabric...all the colors seem to blend together beautifully.

I finally decided on a project for my charm pack of Dream On.  The small checks and polka dots from City Weekend really mix in well with these fabrics, so I added several into the mix.



For now I just have lots of half-square triangles...but soon I'll have something fun to share! Thanks for stopping by...and you can still enter the Go! giveaway here!

Oh...I love the beautiful bright HST's and can't wait to see the project your using them in. As for those little snippets of fabric...my friend puts them in clear jars to decorate her sewing room, or any room for that matter. They look delightful displayed that way.

Quilary said...

I've been throwing all my fabric and wool offcuts into a glass bowl. I'm going to see how long it takes to fill up and will take a pic if it looks any good. It may just look like an ugly mess, but I hope not!

reddoorquilting said...

Colorful. I always love to see your projects in the making. Inspiring!
I sent my photo of the last Schnibbel yesterday. I had a fun year so thanks for all the hard work organizing.
