    The salvage says Karen Neuburger www.quiltingtreasures .com I bought it at a store that was going out of business in Prescott AZ a couple of years ago. It called to me and said 'take me home take me homeeeee" LOL

    I just went to the connecting threads web site and found that they have lots of fabrics that are 'reasonable' price, not the 10 or 11 dollars a yard that the quilt shops are now charging (which IMHO, is ridiculous!) So that might be a good place for you to start looking if you need to purchase fabric for this project.

    The instructions are for 2 different sized finished projects. The pieces may be used in different final settings to achieve the finished sized required. Just choose your size and go for it. Another way to do a lot of HST is to take a strip of both fabrics, half the width of the fabric and the width of the block you need for the finished HST. Press them good sides together. On the back of one, mark the blocks, mark the diagonal line in a zigzag pattern, then sew up one side and down the other. Set seams, cut blocks apart and then cut the HST. (If you plan to square down, use a little bigger square, I use Eleanor Burns SquareUp Ruler, before I press open.) Press open. And you will have done six at a time. This is like making your own Triangle papers for any size HST you are making.

    Looks neat. Gonna' give it a try. I want to make a memory quilt for a friend who recently lost her husband, using his flannel shirts. I think either block done in alternating reverse color blocks would work. Hmmmm, have to figure this one out. There's my January project. Can't wait the year for all but I think either of these would work.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Would someone please explain Thangles to me. What are they and how do you use them? I've seen them everywhere, but never learned what to do with them.

    Boy, there sure seems to be a lot of Mystery Quilts out there. Check this one out, if you like doing these: www.quiltbug.com/free/Tumbleweed.htm. It also started on New Years Day, but the directions are still up in PDF form. Personally, I'm still working on the planet Mystery quilt. No race, right?
