I have several quilt projects coming up that all involve 1 1/2" wide strips, and they are all scrappy quilts. So I am in the process of cutting and sorting by color. These little baskets I found at Dollar General are just perfect for storing these strips. And at 3 for a dollar, you can't beat the price!
Last week, I went on a little outing with some quilting friends and we visited a new quilt shop in the area. Perry's Patches & Quilting is in Sylvania, near Troy PA. Laura is a sweet, friendly person, and we had the best time visiting with her in her new little shop. She is working on a building to house her new business, but in the meantime she has converted her basement into a warm and cozy little quilt shop. Her hours are limited at the present time, so check before you go. She has a very nice collection of fabric and top-notch customer service. Here are some "must-have" additions to my collection of gray fabrics that I simply couldn't leave behind.
