Despite having now completed a small number of quilts I still regard myself as something of a novice on the patchwork front. I have the obligatory cutting board and have amassed a small stash but the number of different patterns I have tried is still in single figures.
Some time ago, a very kind lady gave me a pack of five fat quarters in yellow, white and black. Not colours I would necessarily have chosen myself but they have been blinking hopefully at me every time I open the cupboard door. Having spent the last few weeks clearing up in Spare ‘Oom I am resolved to use both this and a Sew mama Sew charm pack before I start on anything else new.
The problem is, what do you do with five fat quarters? I have found lots of inspiration for my favourite jelly roll and quite a lot of ideas for the charm pack, but can I uncover any easy little projects for my lovely quintet? No. I don’t want to go to the fabric warehouse to go and select extras to go with it, not least because I’ll be tempted to buy other stuff as well (and there is already fabric booty winging its way to me through the post) and that would scupper my ‘no more stash until I’ve used some of what I have got’ resolution.
With my limited experience I have come up with a little plan. I’m not going to tell you yet. You’re just going to have to watch this space…
