    Used to buy fat quarters because I liked the pattern, color, print etc. Now I have waaay too many. What would you make with them since they don't really go together. I guess I could sort them some way but would you make scrappy quilts or buy something that matches several and find a pattern. If so, what pattern would you use?
    Thanks for your opinions.

    Sorry you must have mis typed ! How CAN you have TOO MANY FQ's, just take them out of their store once in a while which is what I did yesterday when it was rainy and miserable and just cheered myself up by sorting and handling them, Its cheaper than any therapy I know, insulates your house , does not depreciate and can ultimately be used to construct something beautiful.....however if you really don't want them... I could help!! LOL

    Thanks for your opinions.
    Please note, that you cannot have too many FQs!! :)

    There are many patterns out there that are designed for FQs only. Some end up just as scrappy mish-mash designs ... and some are quite lovely patterns that you'd wonder how it was only FQs. And too, there are countless possibilities if you start looking at sampler quilts.

    Cruise around and find some patterns that intrigue you. And go for it!
