    Chatter Quilts

    A very close friend gave me boxes of the most wonderful little pieces of fabric, about 2 inches long and an inch wide with star points on each end. Hope that makes sense. She told me they were called "Chatter Quilts." I can't find anything about them. They would go together like a PSQ and I plan to do that, but I'd sure like to know more about them. Does anyone know about these wonderful quilts? I can't wait to get to working with them, but then if I live to be 150 I just might get to do all the wonderful things that quilting offers.
    Thanks much,
    Betty

    I don't know either but will be watching for an answer. Also don't know what PSQ stands for..Please enlighten me. Sounds interesting...Thinking of all those snips and strips I end up putting out for birds or throw away. Tx Carol

    I can't quite picture anything but a pointed Dresden Plate petals? PSQ means postage stamp quilt to me and that is usually squares?

    Sorry, PSQ is postage stamp quilt and is made with little squares from 1 inch up to 2.5 inches. They are a lot of fun so let the birds find another source of scraps.

    I'm lousy at trying to describe things. This might help. Picture a rectangle 2" by 1" and then put a triangle on the top and the bottom. The friend who gave me the pieces says she has a pattern book somewhere in her treasures and that she will find it. I sure hope so, but I can always use them as in a PSQ if not. Thank you for your interest.

    BettyGee - Please show us what these are when you get the book as I could not find anything about them either. Very curious. Sounds really nice.

    Pictures of the pieces??
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Duh, yes I guess a picture would sure help. Like the old saying, if my head wasn't attached I'd lose that too. I will do a picture and then you will see why I'm so tickled at having all of these wonderful little pieces of fabric.
