What do you do with a fat 8th? I asked that question the other day after discovering the fabric that I wanted to use for binding was only a fat 8th instead of a couple of fat quarters. You can see that post here.
I had made a label for the baby quilt and decided to put a binding type of frame around it. I didn't want to use the same fabric that I was using for the binding, so I decided to use part of the fat 8th that I had wanted to use for the binding.
I managed to come up with a way to slip this fabric in someway.
What can you do with a fat 8th? I think a fat 8th is perfect for anything you want to do in little bits, but I think that they would be wonderful for applique. In fact the last couple of days when I have been doing applique I have been using fabric from some of the fat 8ths which I had on my shelves.
