Would you like cheese on that?


Of course! Everything looks better with cheddar. I've been saving 1-1/4" squares whenever I cut for a repro project and keep them in a little plastic box. When it starts to burst, I put together a little quilt. Many of my recent scrappy projects have been turning out a little too...well...scrappy. So, I tapped into the cheddar fabric hoard. The one I used is by Bonnie Blue (Marcus Fabrics) and it is a real favorite. Since most of the fabrics are from Judie Rothermel's lines I am calling this one, "Say Cheese Judie." Cheesey, I know.



This is my little storage box. Don't you just love cute little boxes? When I am cutting my stars (at the top of the photo) I cut a couple of extra 1-1/4" squares and stash them away for a quick fix project later.




Update: the fabric is already spoken for - Congratulations Teresa!


Finally, I've been culling through my fabric collection lately and have a stack of fabrics I am willing to send to someone who can appreciate them more than me. All of the fabrics in the photo above fit into a medium USPS box and I will send them to the first person who says she (or he, but I don't think I have a lot of male readers) wants it. Not a giveaway contest; you claim it first and it is yours. Sorry, I can only ship this one to continental U.S.

What a fun little thing you collect and turn into such a lovely quilt! I should also start saving my 1 1/4" squares from the binding strips left over. Thanks for a great idea! I love your little containers to store the scrap squares. Where did you find them?

Oh please oh please - that's so very generous! Looks like a few minis could be made with all of that!

A nice helping of cheese on a sandwich is good so why not on a quilt! Looks good.

You make me laugh :)

Love the quilt. And you boxes. I really can't believe that you do such tiny, equisite quilts. I even have one of yours at home to prove it, and I still don't believe it! Gorgeous work!
