4" or 5".....which will I start on first



While looking through blogs I found a couple of simple but very effective quilts and thought Mmmmm summer is on its way and I'm sooooo over winter so yesterday I pulled out of my stash all my happy,bright and yummy fabrics and today I ironed them all and started cutting them up into 4" and 5" strips which in turn turned into these two gorgeous piles of SUMMER YUMMINESS I'm just waiting till my September uni holidays when I'll start putting them both together.....I wonder if I'll be able to wait that long?

I've cut way too many squares for both the quilt tops I'm going to be working on so I think after I've finished making both my tops I'll be having a giveaway with the left over squares.....what do you think??? Stay tuned it may be sooner than you think LOL :)

P.S:You'd think with all this cutting I did today my stash would have shrunk but nooooo it's still way too big!

Our stashes are like single celled organisms.....they keep splitting and growing! I like the winter and I'm trying not to think of summer being so close! LOL

That fabric looks yummy! I have the same problem...no matter how much fabric I use up, there never seems to be any more room in my sewing corner! LOL

Pretty strips you have there - so glad you left some for another time.
These will be fun for spring for sure.
Bet you can't wait 'til next month.
