Fabrics

I guess I'm not the only one who has too much fabrics in shelves and boxes. For Natures Journey I have decided to use from these, so my quilt will be a sort of scrappy I think.

The templates are made and a few squares cut. The really challenge for me is the needle turn applique. Some of the pieces are sooo small. Well, I have to try ...
                                                Happy stitching!

It's a wonderful feeling to our more scraps I'm doing mine scrappy too but gives me an excuse to buy more fabric for more scraps in the future.
