Lavinia left a comment about my small doll quilt and said, "What a wonderful job you did to save these precious pieces."
Upon reading her comment, I thought to myself, "Those really weren't the Littlest Pieces I've saved!" I've saved even smaller pieces, and I'll bet that a bunch of BBers have done the same. Admit it! Fess up!
I once had a pint jar full of little snipped dog-ears that I trimmed from stitching and pressing triangle shaped pieces. Do you have any idea how long it takes to save up a PINT of tiny dogears?
They were very pretty in a vintage canning jar. I did the same with tiny snipped strips when I trimmed the edges of blocks to a straight edge. Talk about compulsive behavior! That's truly compulsive! LOL
And while Judy in Ohio is saving 1.5 inch wide selvedge pieces to try a new quilty idea, I've been saving 5/8 inch selvedge strips for years, rolling them into balls and using them when I needed a sturdy tie. They're great for tying a box securely - a box that will be stored in the basement. Or they're great for tying tomato plants to a stake. You get the drift.
So what kinds of CQD (Compulsive Quilting Disorder) do the rest of you quilters have? I'd hate to think I am alone in my weirdness. LOL
