I was talking with a friend recently, and she asked if I could use some 2 1/2 inch squares that she had cut for her Mom, who never got them sewn up. I said that I could always use material, and all cut is even better. So, she dropped them off last week, and this is what I got. 3 tubs, 16x24x6 deep and 2 tubs 12x16x6 deep. 1 large and 1 small tub had the cut up squares, and the rest were yardages of material. I can't even begin to guess how many yards of material that she gave me. I am so lucky. I won't try to explain each picture, they just speak for themselves.
And the above picture is an example of what I am doing with some of the squares. I counted out how many I would need of each color and am using the idea of a bargello and will take the colors down a couple more strips and then take them up. I am liking how it looks so far.
