Being that I'm on a stash diet, rarely do I buy new prints. Unless I find a GOOD buy. So I was shopping last week and... Found one! 5 greener than green prints 1/2 yd cuts for under $10. Yeah! Impulse gets the best of me. I've absolutely no idea what to make with them. So I tucked them away waiting for inspiration.
Found it! Farmer Hershel drove by this morning mowing the ditch. Hmmmm....
Lori Holt from Bee In My Bonnet has a super Tractor block that would do the trick. A large block at 18 x 22, It wouldn't take very many blocks to make a good sized lap quilt. And then I thought about her Barn Blocks that you can find here and here. Maybe a quilt using both the Tractor and Barn blocks and some filler blocks.... It's not a definite plan for a quilt, but the wheels are turning....

Love your new greens - There is Christmas in July going on somewhere, too. I can never keep up with it all, but you could use some of your greens for Christmas makings. I prefer the non Christmas prints for things made for Christmas. The colors are enough. You don't need poinsettias on the fabric to make a Christmas tree skirt. I never feel guilty about buying colors that I use a lot. Greens are easy to use. Thanks for sharing your purchases and the ideas to use them.ReplyDelete
