Do you have a box (or bag) like this? Mine is full of little bits and pieces of fabric, and left over strips from bindings. I was looking for a little piece of a particular fabric, and sure enough, there it was, just what I had been looking for. I am slowly writing up my quilt journal of all the projects I have made and like to add a piece of each fabric as I go. Usually, I have kept photos and swatches, but not this time. Thank goodness I found what I was looking for.
I don’t usually keep such small pieces of fabric but hidden away in the box is an old copy of a Traditional Quiltworks magazine from long ago. The idea was that “one day” I just might get around to making this quilt out all all my little scraps. Who knows? Perhaps I will, or perhaps I won’t. But the magazine will stay where it is, just in case I get inspired. And I know where to go and rummage around for that piece of missing fabric.
