Charm pack on steroids

I cut all of my squares for the fabric swap at See Katie Sew this past weekend while Dave and Jack were at the company picnic. (I couldn't be outside that long.)

I ended up with a sizeable pile of squares and scraps leftover, sort of a charm pack on steriods if you will. LOL

Maybe one of you can use it?

There are at least 20 different fabrics (20 for the swap, but I added a few extras), none really smaller than a 5 inch square. Mostly vintage, a few 1930's repros.

You know the drill. Leave a comment. If necessary I will make the trusty assistant draw a name.

Speaking of the trusty assistant, I seem to be turning the corner on this allergy problem and actually slept 6 hours last night, so we are off to the movies! Wooohooo.

P.S. Need ideas on what to do with small pieces of fabric other than quilting? Here are just a few of the things I have done with the 5 inch squares from our last swap.

P.P.S. Sarah from Small Fox wants to do a virtual quilting bee, something I have been wanting to do for awhile now too. She still needs more participants, so if you can play along with us, go let her know!

  6. Of course, I'm interested! What kind of fabric addict would I be if I weren't? :)

    I hear you about the allergies ~ I have them too. It took moving to the West Coast to cure me :(

    As for ideas for small pieces of fabric: I make little closet satchels. I make a small log cabin block (about 6" or so) you can make any kind of block you like. Then I used a solid square for the back ~ line each piece with muslin and make it into a "pillow" stuffing it with cedar chips & cloves. hhhmmm, I'm having a sewing day today, maybe I'll post a tutorial on my blog.

  12. If anyone asks though, you have to deny the steroid part. :D
    Glad you're feeling better. There should be some kind of help for sick mamas!

  13. Ooooh, count me in too! Glad to hear you're doing better. You are brave to cut fabric while under the weather! I've already had to frog my afghan and have to run spell-check on my blog postings because of brainfog(maybe I need steroids instead of amoxillan).

    What movie will you see? My hubby wants to take me to the X-files but I'd rather not.

  28. I was just thinking about making a quilt this year with squares just that size so I would love to put my name in.
    I know you're a busy lady but thought you might be interested in a series of books I've just stumbled upon. They are by Jennifer Chiaverini and are all stories where quilts play a part. You just might wander away into quilt land for a few pleasant hours and take your mind off the itching.

  29. Hmm, my original comment seems to have disappeared . . . So:

    Pick me! Pick me! I'm ever so smart, and I want to have another packet of fabric that I can look at and fantasize about the day I actually have time to sew something.
