    Thank you so much, Rhonda!! I didn't know you collected chickens! Yes, I can't believe I got all the angles right on the corners so I'll be doing more pineapple style blocks this way and throw the PP out!! LOL.

    :D ;) :D 8-)

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-56035-1.htm

    The pieces were grabbed, sewn and then trimmed to 3/4" going around the block log cabin style. Still need to add borders that I haven't decided on yet.

    The next item is Charm Mini #1. The pattern is Crossed Canoes! I just love that block!! I was thinking about it not long ago and decided to finish it. I started it 6 years ago and it's been waiting for me! Eight little blocks had been done, all PP patterns were ready so I made 8 more little blocks for a quick 4 block mini. It looks just like a Kaleidoscope block! The only difference between the two is that Crossed Canoes' center block is 4 quarter sections where K is a whole square. I just love that little Crossed Canoe block and hope you enjoy my mini! I liked it so well when I got done that I made another one, Charm Mini #2!!! Between both of them, I used 128 different fabrics. In the first mini, I used larger scale fabrics to give it an antique feel to it and I really like #1 the best. I put #2 on point and it's interesting too. I found cheater cloth in the stash and wanted to use it some way so I decided it would make a quick border for #2 mini. BTW, the pattern I did 6 yrs. ago was my own in case you wondered where I got it. I wanted it to finish at 2" blocks PP so I just drew it myself.

    The last mini is a chicken panel I wanted to use up. Wow! I can't believe I did this but I had no pattern at all when I started it and just added strips and then trimmed them to 1/2" and did a pineapple method around the chicken. It worked well without a pattern and want to try this again! I have no need for hot pads, potholders or trivets so this will just be a mini for decoration purposes or a gift.

    Thank you for looking and enjoying my minis! :-D
    Those are great. What is the name of the charm mini #2?
    They are both the same blocks, Crossed Canoes. It's just mini #2 was placed on point and it sure looks different, doesn't it? Look at it sideways and you can see it's the same as mini #1, just all different fabrics! Thank you, kristen0112!!!

    :D :D :D :wink:

    Thank you so much, MaryStoaks!! It's so nice of you to say! Yes, it's interesting getting all these fabs together in one quilt. I'd love to use some of the fabs at least once, but that's hard to do!! It's fun trying!!

    :D :D ;) ;) :roll: :D

    Wow! Thank you for those nice compliments!! Yes, I didn't know the pineapple block could be so easy w/o a pattern, and it works great for a panel!! Just had to be careful to get those corner angles right! We can't wait to see your Rooster panel all dressed up!! Have fun with that!

Even though this is a scrappy quilt, that feature makes it look like the quilt took a lot of planning. I am soooooooooooo going to use this idea for a scrappy quilt. Thanks for the pictures.

    The talent of the women on this board blows me away.
    Wow! Thank you so much, MomtoBostonTerriers, for those super comments!! Yes, I just had to "mat and frame" those blocks as I just can't stand crumb blocks. If I'm going to spend time with scraps, it's going to look like time well spent when I get done with it! Another reason was to use the white up as the scrap bag is now about 4 ft. tall ( :oops: ) and the third reason is for cosmetic purposes -- white needs to be included with a mumbo-jumbo of scraps as it gives much needed balance and a resting place for the eye. Always include white in your blocks and your scrap quilts will sing happy songs!! I feel like I'm just now learning to put color together (after all these years!!), but the talent on this board is incredible to observe!!! I'm so happy you'll try this method sometime! I can't wait to see your quilt!! It'll be singing for sure!! :D :D ;) :thumbup:

    p.s. I forgot to say, welcome to the board from VA!!! You will absolutely love all you see and learn here.
