I like fabric. I have a lot of fabric. Sometimes I hoard my fabric and don't make anything from it. In fact I have a lot of fabric I like which I sometimes hoard and don't make anything from. Part of the reason I dont use my fabric is I can't quite decide what to do with it, not enough ideas and sometimes too many ideas. So 2012 will be different. I am not going to make any resolutions about not buying fabric as that would just be silly and I may have already bought some this year already! But I am going to try and use some of the fabric I have and love. So each month or two I will be picking a different selection of fabric from my stash, asking for ideas and cutting it up and doing something with it. As a little thank you to all the lovely bloggers and followers out there I may even have some giveaways!

Those are 1 yard cuts, which is a lot of fabric that I couldn't decide what to do with. The husband (not usually known for his quilting wisdom) asked why I had never made a "proper patchwork quilt?" He means one made out of squares so I decided to stop procrastinating and cut this into squares with some squares made up of smaller squares. An instant gratification project and hopefully I will have gotten over my fear of cutting into it!
And then just yesterday Katy announced her Swoon-along quilt along using Swoon by Camille from Simplify. I couldn't resist so 18 fat quarters of this will be made into a Swoon quilt provided that I can master flying geece. It's going to be fun so join up!
There is still a lot of fabric left! Ironing and cutting this fabric took a long time so when I was doing it I decided to cut some layer cake and charm pack sized squares and some jelly roll strips ready for making quick projects. I know a few babies due this year and thought the colours in this would be perfect.
