What's next?

I do need to start QUILTING things ... but in the meantime, I have started a new project:

Cotton Food PackingI acquired some of these (in a couple flavors/colors) when I lived in Texas–Thank you, Texas Tamale Company. I wondered if they could be used as quilting fabric ... I am about to find out.

While not exactly scraps, they are close enough and printed in the appropriate color–shades of chocolate– to share with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge list today.

Good luck using your new fabric. It is a lovely shade of brown.

Oh oh oh oh! I have been saving the rice bags for that same purpose! If I love yours it might inspire me!

Those bags appear to be made from muslin. Good luck with your quilting experiment!!

Can't wait to see what you decide to do with those great fabrics.

I had some that were very similar. I but off the seams and make mug rugs out of them. I used bright colored "Mexican Fiesta" type fabric for the backs. I used both the front and backs for the mug rugs. Gifts for Christmas.

I have been saving those too. One got food on it and I washed it. Just want to let you know that the lettering does fade out a lot. I was disappointed that the coloring wasn't bright like it was before it was washed. Sorry to share unhappy news! I love them and think they will add just the right something to a quilt.
