Using Every Kind of Fabric

We had a large number of fat quarters donated to us... so what to do with them?  I found two coordinating fabrics and sewed them together in vertical stripes... I made one of the stripes 5" and the other 3" just for interest.  Then when I cut out the arm holes I made sure that the yellow fabric was at one side and the flowered was at the other... this made the cutest little pocket.  And to finish it off I added blue bias tape and blue rick rack.  Here is the final product.

Thank you to the wonderful estate sale that donated all of these fat quarters.  I have another pattern that I want to try with them and will post the results soon.  If you would like to help just email me at
