Getting ready to make a quilt

I went to a yard sale a while back and bought two large bags of fabric scraps. These were some really nice cotton prints. I have spent the last week cutting the scraps into squares. Some of the scraps were large enough for 4 inch squares. Some I cut into 3-1/2 inch squares and then some were only wide enough to cut 2-1/2 inch squares. I still have a little more fabric to cut, but I hope to start sewing on some quilts soon. I want to just make some scrappy quilts for everyone's bed around here. The ones I made 14 years ago have been used well and are wearing out. I am really excited to start sewing! I will keep you updated on my progress.

For me, the cutting is my least favorite part, now you can start sewing!
