    It looks like we have decided on a name. We are the Grrr-8s. Yeah! In cat attack, are they angry cats, funky cats, or whatever cats we can come up with?

    ctipton, pm me with your email and I will attach a pdf with a cat and a sunflower pattern that I have on my desktop. Of course, I might use the same pattern on your top. LOL.

    ssnare - I'm just outside of Wichita, so not terribly far from you in the grand scheme of things!

    What I am thinking for mine.....and I wish I knew what it was called...I've heard it called "stack & slash" I think. I have no idea how to explain it, but this is one that I made with the technique. I like it because it's really easy and it works up quickly and looks random. I can find the instructions to send along - I just have to dig them out of the pile.

    AmyB is that paper piecing? OMG, I have never done pp. And it looks like you have curves in it. I do not know if I can do those. Yikes, it is beautiful though. I will definitely need instructions. I sure hope I can do something you will like.

    Ok ladies, I got the address list and emails today and sent an email to each one of you and they all came back undeliverable. Please pm me with all of your information and I will try again. Thanks, Sherry

    No, there are no curves at all - and not paper pieced either. Honestly, I have never done paper piecing!

    Let me see if I can explain it. You take your squares of fabric that you start with and stack them all up nice and neat. Then you take a piece of paper or cardboard or something and draw a shape on it. For 5 squares, I believe it would be a 4-sided shape, but not a square. You put that in the middle, then use the ruler and rotary cutter and cut the entire way across the pile of squares following one side, then you put that pile of fabric aside. Then you cut along the next side of the shape, and put that pile aside. You keep going until you just have the middle pile that is the center. Then you take one piece of fabric off of the top of that pile and put it on the bottom. Then you take 2 pieces off of the top of the next pile and put those on the bottom of their pile. Then the same thing with the next pile, only you move 3 to the bottom, and so on. So then if you look at all of the piles together, you still have a stack of 5 squares, but each piece of the square is a different color, and you just sew the squares back together again.

    Like I said, it's really hard to explain - but it's super simple to do. The instructions have pictures.

    Oh, and I did get the email - it came through for me just fine.
