Speaking of making do with what you have... Sandy came over last week and spent the night. We did a little sewing and generally had a great time. We usually try to think of projects to work on ahead of time, but I was drawing a blank. Then, I found this nifty pattern- Simple Star by Bonnie Blue Quilts. When Sandy saw my meager stash I do believe I heard her gulp. She said that she would be all panicky if her stash got that depleted. Yeah, it's pretty lean in there, but I was determined. Sandy sat back and watched me audition fabric- I needed 11" WOF X 8. Four lights and four darks. Sounded pretty simple. That, my friends, was a real challenge. But I think the quilt came out right nice. You might notice that the 4 corner squares are a tad different(gray instead of green)- and I had to do some creative piecing a couple times to make things work. But it's all good and I like it all the more because I just used what I had. I "made do."
