I couldn't resist buying a jelly roll of this "freshcut" line of Free Spirit fabrics by Heather Bailey. I added in a few extras from my stash, along with some Kona snow, and now am well on my way to a new spring quilt. Of course, knowing how long it usually takes me to finish things, it may not be completed until next spring,

A nice simple quilt, great for using up scraps. Use 6" squares, cut in half diagonally. Stitch each set of triangle halves to a 1 1/2" x 8 1/2" strip. Trim block to 5" square, aligning the diagonal line on the ruler with the center of the strip. Easy and fun.
I think this will be the "year of the scrap". I have SO many fabric leftovers....it's time to concentrate on using them.
