Help! I've cut strips and I can't get up!
About a year ago, I cut fabric for a particular project. And while I was cutting, I cut strips for a second project out of those same fabrics. I now have a lovely box of 2 1/2" and 4" strips. For a particular purpose ... WHICH I CANNOT REMEMBER.
I have been through my binders of patterns, looking for anything that would have caused me to choose those strip cuts. I have looked through my Kaffe Fassett books, knowing I always love making those quilts and maybe my strip cutting was aimed at one of those. I've hunted around the internet, looking for strip quilts that might have appealed to me at some point.
I can't find anything that jogs the least tiny corner of a memory. And the really annoying thing is that as soon as I give up the search and decide to do something else with them, I'll come across the original thing and know that THAT was what I wanted to do and I'll wish I'd waited.
So I'm appealing to you, quilting friends.. Do you happen to know of some quilt that requires 2 1/2 inch and 4 inch strips? What the HECK was I thinking?
