These are the fabrics to be given away, maybe. I then read Bonnie Hunter's take on scraps at her Quiltville site. She reminds us that there is plenty of $$$$ represented here, and could we put some of the fabric to good use, in a scrap quilt? And yes she has wonderful patterns to choose from. So I read about her system, selected some patterns, and pulled fabric, and started cutting.
Her you see 3.5 inch strips, 2 inch strips, 5.25 inch squares,6 by 1.5 inch strips, and 8.5 inch squares. the 3.5 and 2 inch strips can be used in many ways. the 5.25 inch square will be used in a no-waste method of making flying geese blocks. See http://www.patchpieces.com/files/flyinggeese.pdf for how this is done. The 8.5 inch squares are for Bonnies' Mountains Majesties project.
I have made progress. I have come across embarrassments. Like the red and black check fat quarter, never touched, with the date of 1988 on the selvage. Or the fabric below. I think this was a remnant on sale - that's the only excuse I can formulate right now.
(Colors are worse in person.) Oh well. Cut into smaller pieces it may look OK, and if not, cut it into even smaller pieces.
