    Purses, totes, makeup bags, wallets. During the hot months I move from making quilts to smaller items, buying fat quarter collectionns or quilt kits on clearance is a great way to get fabric for smaller projects thats already co-ordinated. I get quilt kits a lot of times with no intention of making the pattern that comes with it. Most times I get awesome fabric at a great price.

    I really like FQ. It enables me to have all fabrics from a line. I make pretty much make any and every quilt with FQ. I do sometimes add yardage for a border or sashing.

    Civil war tribute and other reproduction FQ plus yardage for border, setting triangles and sashing.

    I have only used them if a pattern calls for them (table runner) other than that I get them for applique, in our area you can get 1/2 yd cuts at some places for just a bit more $ so I buy 1/2 yds.

    i use FQ in scrappy quilts, i also use them in the block of the month swap here on the board, also in the doll quilt swap. Humbug bags are fun to make and a FQ makes a good sized one. Snap bags are another good thing to make.

    I made their straightlaced pattern it is absolutely beautiful in teal and purple asian fabrics from northcott. their kits are very reasonable too. I bought 1 from a show, also they were very helpful in getting me the info on the fabric line when I wanted to make something else

    This used to be me - but now that I started making totes from charms I'm finding myself using up all of those collections of FQ's...especially the coordinating ones.

    So obviously my answer would be totes...pictures on my blog...
