    Wow you are so lucky , what a sweet daughter you have to give you beautiful strips and cut up already on top of that.
    I have only one Daughter and she doesn't even get into sewing of any kind, I so wish she would, but I don't see it happening in my lifetime anyways.Have fun with all your strips :-D

    Something new always makes our wheels turn in our heads. The minute I get a new quilt magazine, I run to the sewing room and start pulling fabrics for one of the patterns, only to go back a few days later and put the fabrics back up so that I can finish the one I am currently working on!

    What about making one of the quilts a gal on here was talking about. Just keep sewing strips together until you get a bunch. Then place ends together and sew, cut bottom and put ends together and sew, then cut bottom.

    She had a better explaination.

    Sounds like it would be fun at least once.

    Nope, you are not crazy. New fabric is supposed to make us all excited, no matter how much we already have :)

    So glad she inspired you to do more great work. By the way, what kind of cutting mat is that? I've never seen a yellow one.

    What a blessing. It is fun to get fabric from my daughter whom I gave at least 1/2 of my stash to 2 years ago when moving. She is sewing up a storm with the fabrics and having so much fun.

    I would get excited also. You do realize it's an addiction don't you?

    Go buy a jelly roll book(or borrow @ library) and change it up! It's nice for the little "stripper" to share, so gengerously w/mommie! Did she cut just for you, or why does she have so many extras?

    I understand the excitement. QGuild friends give me their itty bitties to see what I will come up with! The fun is they often buy fabrics different from my selections, so adds a new dimension to my patchwork pieces! Have fun stripping away!

    I have been making strippy blocks out of all my various leftover strips. Makes lovely scrappy quilts!
