I got goodies from Susan in Manchester. They were a wonderful assortment of quilting goodness…larger cuts and fun little pile of scraps that needed to be sized up.
I’ve made a new rule with myself. Nothing goes to the sewing room until it’s cut down and sorted. I’m trying so hard to keep the quilting room clean. Besides, the island in the kitchen is great for cutting fabric down and it’s something I can do when Hubby comes home late from the field. I cut and he eats. I love it that I can be with him and work too. It’s mindless work so I can easily visit while I work.
I’m still lovin’ printed white fabrics. These three in the front of the photo were in the box and they quickly became my favorite.
You can see all my stacks of fabrics ready to be put into the proper storage container. Some already made it into my stringed diamonds. I love that a little piece of my blog readers end up in my quilts. It’s like a little well wish from a friend.
Thanks so much Sue. I truly appreciate it!
Today I am hooking up with Patchwork Times.

A good rule which I try to follow too, cutting up the scraps left over at the end of projects. It does help to keep my stash under control and I love having pre-cut strips and squares easy to use. Makes future projects so much quicker. Just made a drawstring bag, all from scraps, mostly pre-cut, so it came together very quickly.
Forgot to ask. Did your parcel from Sue come from Manchester, England? I live in England, hence my curiosity! My husband lived near Manchester all of his childhood.
An excellent rule! Plus, I agree that it is a wonderful way to spend time with your husband talking and cutting at the same time. It really is great that you have so many fabulous and loyal followers/friends that give you their unwanted fabrics. I recently got a plastic shoe storage bag at a garage sale for free that I stuffed full of all sorts of small pieces of scraps that need to be cut up and then sorted into their proper storage units. Yet, I have not had the opportunity to cut any of them with several deadlines for quilts having to be met one right after another. LOL. Oh well, they are not going anywhere and will be cut and used when the time is right. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful creative day!
