I've been giving thought to my extensive stash of yarn, and then I remembered my "other" stashes... I'll name only one: Fabric, left over from two decades of quilting. (I wasn't knitting...)
What am I going to do with all that fabric? I know: Donate it, OR make something.
I spent yesterday pulling all my fabric out of its hiding places in bins. I sorted it into colors. And I figure I can sew up a quilt top, and sit and quilt in front of the TV ALL winter.
I selected a colorway, and beginning in the middle, free form, (that is: NO pattern in mind) started to sew pieces together. That's fine for the middle of a quilt, but from the middle, the quilt size grows... Yep, every time! Hopefully I'll know when to stop!
Here are 3 placements of my triangles. Feel free to comment. BTW, I took the pictures NOT because I wanted to bore my blog readers, but so I could get a good view of the patterns.

|A little too stripey: Why did I cut all the fabric?|
|This looks a little more orderly, AND like a quilt pattern.|
Boring! Now I'm stuck.Lest you think I strayed, I have two huge bags of fabric to go to charity, and a lesser amount in the trash. Still have 3-4 quilts' worth of fabric stashed.
