I remember the days when I bought bags of scraps because I didn't have enough. I was going to say that you were lucky there were enough coordinated--nope, more like you looked at what you had and designed around it. And it worked!
Clairealex, Thanks for stopping by with a encouraging comment, it means a lot. :) Your quilts are so intricate and beautiful, you are truly an inspiration for a beginner like me.
I give away all my projects for fundraising on www.stitchadream.com or as gifts. Hence, I try to save every penny I can without compromising on the quality of fabrics. It is also fun to work with someone else's scraps, bends my mind to come up with a design to make it work!
