    Thanks for your opinions.
    I'm in the same boat you are, so here's an opportunity for you. I'm doing a Fat Quarter Stars Quilt Along on this site, it's just starting. http://moosequilts.blogspot.com/ Her QA's are alot of fun! Try it.

    Now this one seems like it would be for me - not too difficult to do and easily understood. I am a beginner quilter and have trouble reading patterns yet, so this tut is very helpful.
    Thanks, tinliz

    I collect fqs. I sort by color blue. green burg, brown I cut them up in 4.5 squares . when i have a small tub i put them to gather. I have a long arm quilt them. then i put 3 borders on. hand quilt or machine quilt the borders with my embroidery machine. border 1 is 5" the 2nd is 8 to 10" appliqued, pieced. the the 3rd is 5" the same as the b-1 this makes the quilt very cheap but a nice queen size. i will dig some pictures out. the long are operators have got so expensive. Im still addicted to quilting. susie

I could help!! LOL
    Great post!!! :)
    Ha-ha. I think so too!

    There are many books and patterns that use fat quarters. Look through them. I'm sure your fat quarters would MOSTLY fall into 4 piles that go together. You just have to work out what those piles are.

    I too have a large fat quarter collection (many from a New Years Day door prize). So, I get where you are coming from. I have made 2 fat quarter quilts from them already. I traded ones I absolutely couldn't use for something that I could use.

    I fall for them too and have collected them. Signed up for a class tomorrow "Krazy Kurves" and supply list calls for 20 fat quarters! I almost didn't make it! Imagine that. Anyway looking forward to it. The sample quilt made up in the quilt store is a king size and done in batiks. It is gorgeous.
