My stack

Ever since I took my first insecure step into patchwork and quilting, I have had the habit of cutting a 10 x 10 cm (4 x 4'') piece out of every patchwork fabric I have ever owned.

In the beginning I was not even sure what it was for!

But now I have a huge pile of these single pieces, and I know that one day one or more quilts will emerge from that stack. It currently measures 16,5 cm in height (7.2 '').

But not now. I think It deserves to grow a little higher... :)

thank you SOOOOOOO much for posting about my bee on your site.

That is a great idea to cut out pieces of each fabric. It will make a great quilt when you put them all together...a little memory of each project you worked on.

I may just have to find some space to start collecting a charm square from each project
