    Lately, I have this obsession to use the trimmings from other quilt blocks. :roll: Is this packrat syndrome? I've made a few little doll quilts. Great practice for me. And look, I'm hand quilting one of them.

    I don't think it's packrat... That's keeping it and never seeming to USE it. I think it's more a conservation thing. :) They look just great Chele, great work.

    Great job Chele! I love your little quilts. I think that your handquilting looks very good too. Now make a big one so you can handquilt it!

    Great job. You are putting the rest of us to shame is what you are doing. I have all of those pieces saved too. I just don't seem to get to them. Someday.

    No I don't think pack rat. I think it is very creative.

    Me I think must be the queen of all packrats. I packed up 9 big rubber totes full of fabric when I packed up the sewing room. Got most of it moved to the other house. How did I get so much!

    You are being thrifty/green with your scraps is all! The quiltville frame of mind.

    As long as you don't tell us you are making little quilts for the squirrels and mice to keep warm with, we won't think you are losing it. You are just making the most of your stash.
