Sorted . . .
I discovered a bunch of pastel strips left over from a log cabin quilt I made as a graduation gift for one of my daughter's friends - in 2002. Those will work great in my string blocks.
I have piled all of the fabric that will work for pillowcases into stacks and it looks like I have enough to make about a dozen pillowcases for donations.
There are some large yardage pieces that I probably bought on sale to use as backs since they are fairly neutral. There is a bag with a new (OK - unused) queen sized cotton batting. Two large blocks left over from a kids' quilt, some panels, and a lot of odds and ends were in this tub. Plus I filled up a garbage bag with small scraps of smushed and wrinkled batting that I didn't want to deal with.
And the most exciting find? I'll have to share that another day, but let's just say that it is a treasure from my childhood.
Now I need to find room to put this all away in my sewing room!
