Buddy says it is a cry for help. I agreed that since I have made a postage stamp charm quilt, and am making a charm spool quilt, I am well suited to help someone find 3,000 different fabrics. Buddy said the comment for Monday's post was not that kind of cry for help, but the other kind. Molly disagreed and said it was a taunt, a dare. Molly doubled down and said she thought I could find 3,000 different fabrics just on the floor alone. Dare accepted!
So egads. Challenge failed. I was only able to get a few hundred different fabrics from the sewing room floor...so I also raided my bin of "chunks" that I use for filling in the ends of string pieced triangles. Next I raided my "waiting to be filed scrap bin" that includes many of the bits that I acquired from the downsizing quilters' estate sale...where I bought her scrap bin. That only got me to about 600 different fabrics. Then I raided my sorted scrap bins...digging into pink, purple and yellow I got the count up to about 1,000. Except I kind of lost count. The dare is for 3,000. A bit harder than I thought. But tomorrow is another day.
And I know I won't have to cheat and dig into this full bin of 2.5 inch squares I've been cutting along the way for "someday."
