    Well glad you can return it for a refund. Did they say why there is such a big difference in the boxes?

    I get an email about them re their quilting deals but don't ever remember seeing a deal of the day. Is there someplace to look on their site for that? Yeah... like I need more fabric... LOL!

    Here is the link for their deals: http://www.craftsy.com/deals/. I think it is the quilting deals you get already, but it does change or add to daily.

    And I think I get emails because I registed on the site.

    hi friends, i have a question unrelated to the mystery boxes so here goes, how many fat quarters to a yard of fabric. i am attempting to make a quilt with a block that requires only 3 different fabrics. the problem for me is that i don't know how to figure out how much fabric i need to make the quilt. the block is 10 1/2 inches unfinished with a center square 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 outer rectangles 4- 2 1/2 x 3 inches and 4 - 2 1/2 x 5 inches. with the trim being 2 - 1 1/2 x 4 1/2; 2- 1 1/2 x 6 1/2; and 4 - 1/1/2 x 2 1/2 i don't know if this helps the pattern is called garden fence, i suppose if i told you that to begin with i wouldn't have had to put all the dimensions in there lol. oh well rookie what can i say. i contacted the person who posted the pattern but she doesn't want to give out to much information as she is thinking of publishing it. she did tell me that i could get the 2 blocks out of the fat quarter. so the rest is up to me and YOU if i can get some help. i figured i would make it 10 blocks by 8 blocks not even sure if that will be the size i want but i can add a border or 2 to help the size along. i just don't want to start making it until i am sure i have enough fabric to make it. i could also make 2 different colored blocks and alternate them on the quilt. i am using white fabric for the trim around the blocks just so you know. i have a ton of white fabric. sorry for going on but i have nowhere to turn as i am attempting to do this without anyone i know here to help. so your it. hope you have big shoulders. thanks so much for listening, rachelle

    You should probably start a seperate thread to get all your questions answered- but a fat quarter is 1/4 of a yard, so 4 make up a yard.

    A "quarter yard" cut of fabric is 9 inches x Width of Fabric, this isn't as easy to cut out many shapes (and loses a lot of fabric due to fraying in the washing machine) so fat quarters are used instead. To do this, the quilt store cuts 18 inches (half a yard), and then cuts it in half, so a fat quarter is 18 inches x half the width of fabric (often 22 or 21 inches). You can get four quarter yard cuts out of a yard (36 inches), or you could get four fat quarters.

    Nice stash! I'm working on mine as often as DH will let me out of the house! lol He KNOWS I may not be able to make it home without hitting Joann's, at least, to check out the remnant bin.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    here is a mini tute sorta to help make the blocks. http://hyacinthquiltdesigns.blogspot...den-fence.html

    but that quilt pattern goes by many names, garden fence is just one of them.

    there is also a garden fence quilt along on the web so do a google search for it and perhaps the quilt along will help answer your questions.
