    I was NOT supposed to be doing anything today but putting a binding on my neices crib quilt.... well...that is still collecting dust in the corner because my MIL sent this material and I knew right away what I wanted to do with it... mind you this is just cut out and up on my design wall right now but will probably start stitching it tomorrow! LOL

    That is really lovely! Can you post a picture of some of the fabric that isn't cut up? I would love to see how you created that. Barb C

    Well, stuck a piece of it on the wall next to it so you could see....I cut it in 2 1/2 inch strips and then 2 1/2 inch squares and then I filtered thru them and picked out what worked where! LOL Hope this is what you wanted to see and know about!

    Thanks for both pictures. I had never seen the fabric in such a project before it was cut. That gives me some idea of what to look for. Thanks!
    Can't wait till you get done! Really pretty.

    Very sweet, Blue and white always reminds me of old china. I have that pattern book, too, and never came across any fabric that would work. You chose a winner!

    Yes, the plain white squares are also 2 1/2 inch squares... when I did this before I considered not cutting the white but thought it would look more uniform if I did and then just sew it back together...I'm sure it could be done either way tho.

    Oh Patsy, what a wonderful quilt that will be. I am glad you showed it all as I have never done or seen that before. I'll take it when done :lol: :mrgreen:

    I have never seen that done before. It is sooo clever! Puts a whole new spin on looking at my stash for future projects.

    I could even make a chili pepper wreath with the fabric I don't know what do with!

    The chile pepper wreath would be great, as I love peppers, material, hanging, etc.

    I just strip cut the material in 2 1/2 inch strips, then into 2 1/2 inch squares and placed them where I thought they looked good. If I thought an area needed something in particular then I did fussy cut a few squares if I couldn't find one already cut but for the most part I didn't need to do that.

    Thanks for the nice compliments!

    Patsy,
    I would love to see a pic of the finished project. I've never done a watercolor, but I often think about trying one.
