WIP Wednesday-- Sometimes It's Just a Week for Cutting

Cutting fabrics is all I got done over this past week.
I started out looking through my strips and scraps to look for purple for the soscrappy blog challenge.
For the quilt I want to make, I am doing quilt as you go.  So I also looked around for fabrics I could cut for the back squares as well as the batting.  I will be making strip blocks in colors.....something I've been wanting to do for a long time, so it's about time I get started on them.


I was just going to cut what I needed and go on, but figured I really should just cut all of the scraps into usable pieces while I was at it.
You can see in my picture that I cut 10 inch for hotpads, a few extra 12 inch squares, 5 inch squares for later use, and 5 inch squares for coaster sets.  I ended up with a few skinny strips for doll rugs, and some strips for toothbrush rugs.  I ended up with a pile of strips for later string blocks too.
Not pictured are the 10 inch cotton batting that I cut for the hotpads and the pillowcase that I started filling with small pieces for making a dog bed.


I actually do have a progress picture to share on the crazy colored quilt. It's a cheat shot that I saved for this week just in case I didn't get anything done.  I actually added the other 2 rows on during the quilt retreat.
