Some days ago - after talking about boxes and boxes with squares, and that hubby threatens to move out because it's not space for him anymore - one said to me; 'you have a problem'! LOL
... and here is my 'problem'...
Yep! Boxes with squares in different sizes!
The squares are sorted on sizes and some boxes had squares in different sizes. Spent some time today organizing and cutting more scraps. Reduced the amount of boxes with three, a good sign! :)
I think I have to show you what is hidden in some of the boxes
This one, it's the large black one to the top right on the first photo.
It consists of 5500 2 inch squares, all from earlier swaps. Still it's not enough squares (from swaps) for a King size quilt (108 x 108 inch)! :) lol I do not plan to make a King size though, even if that had been fun! The problem will be to quilt it on my 'Dear Nina'. 6400 2 inch squares are needed to make a King size quilt!
Christmas fabric - 2 inch squares. I have no clue how many there are, I haven't counted.
These boxes consist of 2 and 2.5 inch squares. Some are for a possible next swap (it's not confirmed it will be another swap this year) and some are just for me. :) The box to the right consists of orphan blocks and HST (half squares triangles). The idea is to make a 'wild' quilt using up all those HST's.
2.5 inch squares. No counts.
Batiks..... need to cut more.... The idea was to cut and sell small packages containing 50 squares each. I did it 3-4 years ago and sold it all on Etsy as well as eBay.
You may wonder; 'what does she do with all those squares'?
My answer is; 'I'm addicted and I'm working on it!' :)
I have just finished thread basting my second Postage Stamp Quilt where I have used squares entirely from swaps.
That will be another post. :) You can see the first one I made from swaps here
