    OH, MY GOSH!!! Now I have a good excuse to collect all of those novelty fabrics that I find so cute. I couldn't figure out how to use so many. Thanks, girls. I am now on a new tangent. :twisted: Thanks for the pic. How cute. I have new nephews and there's a new kid down the street. I got work to do!!

    Boo...Let's don't go there! I'm sure you don't have any more or less tools, patterns or ideas that I do... I'm so easily swayed off my chosen sewing/quilting path. I have a dozen projects STARTED! All started with the same excitement you speak of regarding the I Spy quilt with Pokeman. I have told my husband and my sister that should I drop dead she is to be here immediately with 3 empty moving vans to clean out my sewing stuff because our kids would NEVER understand my fabric/quilting/tools/pattern and UFO quilt collections! I feel better knowing I'm not the ONLY one who has projects in the "making."

    Keep on sewing, keep on sharing,
    Randy

    I was wondering about the "spy quilt", also. I don't remember seeing that pattern in any of my quilt magazins.

    Scrap quilts are all that I make, but I'd like ideas for using up small pieces of fabric. Because of my disability, the sides of each individual piece must be straight so that they can be cut with a rotary cutter. I tried to cut around the curve on "drunkards path" block with a small rotary cutter but found it too difficult, impossible not difficult, due to my shaking hand. My favorite quilt block is the 9 patch, but I also make 4 patch, brick wall, tumblers, and even string quilts. I can't bear to throw away any scrap large enough to sew onto another piece of fabric.

    So glad you reposted that you couldn't find it. I was staring at that pic looking for the windows. LOLOLOL :lol: My first reaction is that your windows look alot like a railfence quilt. :lol: As a scrap rail fence, it is very nice and sure it was a satisfying project. I love scrappy!

    LOL I'm glad Boo posted, I'm bad about reading real fast(cause I'm at work and have to hurry) so I didn't catch the part about this just being ANOTHER scrap quilt and I just couldn't figure out why it was called some kind of windows! Guess I'll slow down a little.
