    New member from UK

    Hello, I am currently doing QAYG with 12.5" blocks which I've done before but something on Pinterest took my fancy and lead me here. It was a reversible QAYG but with putting in user name and password I've lost it now
    I mainly make items for charity which go where needed so keep all small pieces when I can. I've just used up some pieces to make binding and with joining at an angle and cutting off the excess I've now got some tiny 2" blocks for a future project
    are there any other UK members here?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Hi Nana, not UK but I am just a bit south of British Columbia

    I work with scraps mostly myself, I prefer to have my fabrics prewashed and ready to go since typically all I do is cut small pieces from them. Lately I've collected quite a bit of fabric and am doing much more prewashing, ironing, folding and sorting of fabric than I am sewing. A number of ladies in my small group also have large amounts of 2-2.5" squares or other small pieces that they keep in various ways and then typically use in donation quilts. Glad to have you join us!
