Would you believe it? It took me all day today to cut those large squares into usable small pieces and file them away. Here I thought I could finish by noon! Can't believe it took so long. But it's done - and what a good feeling! Now my uncut scraps are reduced to only 3-4 boxes and totes. I must have enough cut strips, squares, bricks and triangle squares for at least 20 full size quilts if not more!
I thought I posted that I was taking up the fabric challenge - but I guess I just put it in a comment on Vicki's blog. I just bought everything I've planned on buying for some time. I'll even be good at the Seattle quilt show - at least that's my plan. Cutting and sorting and washing and pressing and generally playing with my fabric is a sobering experience - it makes me realize over and over just how much I have and how I don't need anything else. At least not now. Maybe backgrounds and borders eventually - but certainly not for awhile.
