Serendipity is my favorite word. In fact, a zillion years ago we started a woman's church group that we called by that name, as we never knew what we would do for socialization outreach etc. This project was planned around my "stash" and it has gone in a couple of different directions over time. I still have a couple of blocks to reinvent, because color did not look right. I know some have made a "crazy quilt" choice of colors of just about everything, and they look just fine. I wanted something more balanced or with a common thread.....lots to do before we begin quilting.
