Cute right? I started this I can't even tell you when, probably when this book first came out. Scrap Basket Surprises by Kim Brackett. Luckily I had the foresight to store the book with the pieces and even mark the pages with a sticky note or I would truly be lost after all this time.
There are so many great quilts in here I could probably make all of them but remember this one I finished last month?
Well, it's made with 2 1/2" strips and being true to myself I cut way too many strips from my stash when I was making it so whats' a girl to do but find a way to use those up? I honestly can't remember now which came first. Did I cut for this Kitchen Sink pattern first and just keep going for a donation quilt? That sounds more like it. I'll never know/remember now. Procrastination is a memory thief.
The pattern for Kitchen Sink calls for 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" pieces and as you can see I have those all cut out and carefully preserved. They've been marinating for at least two years! Time to get sewing.

PS - Thank you all for your kind thoughts and condolences on the passing of our dear Shadow. We have been sad and River truly misses her friend. I have not had the heart to respond to you individually, I hope you will understand. Our pets fill such a unique place in our lives and they leave a hollow spot when they have to go. I do appreciate you and thank you.
Until next time,
