Last IBOL boxes, new project



Today I finished filling the Flat Rate boxes I had from the P.O. for Iraqi Bundles of Love. I forgot to take any photos, but here is the evidence that I used my stash.
.

THREE totally empty plastic storage boxes! Now what am I going to do with them?


Well, I could pack up some of the piles of fabric and unfinished projects that are all over the bed in the sewing room....


.



As I was looking through the boxes of fabric to determine what I was ready to send away for good, I found a couple of small "jelly rolls", only 10 strips each in pastel batiks. So I have started a baby quilt with them and some white-on-white prints.
.





It's going to ba another Zig-zag quilt, but this time I'm going to let the zig-zags go diagonally. More interesting I think, and definitely easier to put together--no setting triangles necessary!
