Buried Treasure

Non-Traditional Quilters met today.  My good friend Mary brought over a gigantic plastic bin filled with "orphan" blocks, left-over strip sets and just plain miscellaneous.  That's Pat in the background, fascinated.

We had a grand time going through everything, sorting and hearing their stories.  Some of us took a few things (Mary is very generous) that appealed to us and we will try to turn them into something.  Here's a view of a few more of the goodies.
Do we all have collections like this at home?  Of course.  Mine aren't all rounded up in one place, though.  I didn't even take a picture of what I took to work on - a pink and brown block and a long row of pink and brown squares that will probably turn into borders.  Wait and see.  We'll work on these new/old projects and see what develops.
