    I was cleaning out some of my old wrapping paper and I got to looking at the designs and thought hey that would make neat quilts for blocks or applique. Am I going crazy or what!

    ROFL. I find that I do that with many things now that quilting has become such a big part of my life. I think it is the creativity creeping out of you; it is a great thing (smile).

    Reuse anything. Never know where you will find a pattern.
