Never Throw Anything Away and Use What You Have
I just had to post this because I am laughing at myself. I was so excited when I started crazy quilting. I thought it was the perfect way to use up my scraps of fabric, yarns, last bits of beads, ribbon pcs, and...you get the picture. I decided I wanted to try an all ivory/white crazy quilt and embellish it with navy blue. I love blue and white toille and could envision the crazy quilt looking so pretty with that color combo. So, I dig through my stash of fabrics. I have enough of all the right colors, but most of what I had was the wrong weight. It was either too thin so that the dark threads underneath would show, too heavy so the seams wouldn't lay flat and would be bulky, or were just a shade off. Long story, short form: I just got back from the fabric store. That's all I have to say about that ~ lol! I'll start piecing together tomorrow. Again, you get the picture.
