    love finding things in stash forgotten!

    I needed a fast gift. At one time I purchased the hungry caterpiller fabric for a child's size quilt. large crib size wider and longer.

    what a nice surpise ! Perfect, I had to "quilt" fast so ran top to bottom and bound. maybe will add some stitches left and right to keep batting in place..

    what fun to find things forgotten long ago !!
    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    It's amazing what I "rat hole" away. Sometimes saving everything is good

    I am finding that it is amazing what you can find when you can see what you have! My mom and I are in the process of bringing all of the fabric out (from hidey holes) and wrapping. We have already found many things to use.

    Congrats on your "quick find".
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!
