Look what I found in my stash!! *ok well all except the red at the top left LOL*
Here's a little back-ground.
I am demonstrating the Go! tomorrow at the Ottawa Valley Quilters Guild show tomorrow and I thought to myself - you know I bet I'll be showing the rag die a lot since people seem to love it so much. Then I thought - wow I should cut out a rag quilt while I'm demoing so that I'm doing something useful. I went to my LQS today to see if I could find some flannel that was calling to me. I saw that lonely little piece of red on a bolt in the 50% off bin and thought - hang on!! I think I have a whole bunch of flannel-tiks in my stash in that drawer I hardly ever open!! So I grabbed the red and came home to see what I had. I pulled all the rest of these out of my drawer - how cool is that?? The ones on the bottom are fat quarters and the rest are some yardage.
These were the flannel-tiks from Princess Mira from several years ago - I bought them with no clear purpose, I just really liked them, and they got stored away. Now I think I have a project for them but I am thinking about taking out the orange and red fabrics (yes, the red I just purchased) so that I can have all just blues and greens. I think that a rag quilt - like my Pink Rag Quilt - might be really nice in these colours. And then maybe my boys would stop stealing mine ;-) And since I could cut while I work this might just be a win-win-win.
- I get to use my stash
- I get to cut while I demo the Go!
- I get another fuzzy rag quilt
What do you guys do? Shop the stash first or shop at the shops?
Speaking of shopping the shops - anyone in the Ottawa area going to the show this weekend?
