Yard work and kits.......

I spent the morning in the back yard, sharing peony roots with a friend (her son did the digging) and chopping off peony bushes and pulling weeds.  When I came in I was pleased to find I had 20 people interested in the floral/colorwash fabric kits.  (If anyone else is interested, I can make more kits but they would only have a few of the fabrics I showed yesterday in them and more of the fabrics shown today.) As of 10:30 a.m. CST I am not taking any more orders for kits.  If you want to be on a waiting list in case someone drops out or I have enough to make more then continue to comment or email me.  I will respond to you telling you that you are on the waiting list.

In the afternoon I went through all three blanket boxes and separated the fabrics into groups.  This group is 'less than 1/4 yard' pieces.

This pile is 1/4 - 3/8 yard pieces.  I pulled all of the large prints and also the pieces I have larger yardage of and filled one of the blanket boxes with those.  I'm hoping for only a box and a half of fabric left after all of the cutting. 

This pile is 1/2 -3/4 yard pieces.  All of the 1 yard and larger were in another pile that didn't get photographed.

I started cutting the kits last night and also ironed a bunch more pieces that are ready to cut this morning.  I'll probably take a break in the middle of the day and sew the wallhanging shown 2 days ago and then go back to cutting again.

The variety in your stash never ceases to amaze me.

This is another test. Love your fabrics.

OK, I give in....I did well to resist yesterday, but more photos just broke that in to pieces. I will gladly help you reduce your stash.
I trust your selection for me....and make it 2 sets.

Read your blog all the time, Wanda, and enjoy your gorgeous quilts. I would be interested in having some of your floral prints, also. Carol

I seem to be one day behind in your blog but I read what they give me each day. I did comment today on yesterday's blog that I do want to purchase a bundle of fabric. Thanks again.

Take care of your wrist with all of that cutting. We don't want you injured!!!

Oh, I am drooling here and wishing that I lived in the States, instead of Canada for this chance.LOL
You have an amazing collection of fabrics and do a lot of wonderful work with it as well.
Happy Autumn!

You have done the shopping for these lovely pieces, and now the cutting. You are making it very difficult to resist but I must force myself just to 'window shop' till I get my present stash down also. So Happy your are selling so many kits.

I have never done a color wash quilt, but I am willing to learn. Please add me to the list if anyone dare to drop out. Thank you so much for all you do. It is amazing!

The pile is looking still very large, will it diminish ever??? Such a wonderful variety, I can see colourwash projects galore. Peony, one of my favourites. Cheers,Jean.

I'm late on seeing all this, so it's a good thing that I haven't been craving floral color wash quilts! I can actually manage without. But I know you're making lots of people so very happy by sharing your fabrics. I know they've been selected with care by a great artist. I hope those who "get" your kits will share their quilts later.
