When that same principle is applied to quilting, some people bring fabric, some sewing skills, some batting, some quilt, some put on binding and finally some sew on labels. And the end result is a pile of quilts!
This year I saw a quilt pattern at another group I sew with called "Crazy Eights" that I thought would make a great comfort quilt for our Stone Soup Day. I did a quick search when I got home and found the pattern over here at Fons and Porter. I didn't order the pattern as it looked simple enough to figure out and I didn't want to use strips, but the overflowing pile of 2.5" squares I've been cutting and saving for a very long time!
