Monday night was the meeting for my quilt guild which includes a visit to the free table. My rule is to leave more fabric than I take. And for the most part I'm looking for weird bits that I can use to make these spools. And by weird bits, I mean fabric that I wouldn't typically buy--even a fat quarter.
Bonnie Hunter says that if you don't like a fabric, you haven't cut it up small enough. So yes, I do appreciate these fabrics much more in smaller bits.
And for some of these fabrics, I'm taking home very small bits. For example, the scrap of green grid background fabric in the right hand lower corner was only big enough to cut two 1.5 by 3.5 inch strips.
And here is a rhododendron blooming in my backyard. I moved into this house last summer, so this spring I am learning more about the colors of the landscaping.
You are also seeing a picture of a flower because BOTH the cat and the horse are in the dog house. Molly climbed a screen today. And last night as I was drinking, Buddy ran and jumped on me with the exuberance of a puppy, then took his horsey head and butted it up against the glass transferring the glass contents to my face and front. I am still waiting for their apologies.
