Changed my applique method thanks to a hint from Glady (GV09) who posts her Dear Janes and many other wonderful projects.
So here are F10 through 13.
I finally bit the bullet and unpinned my display wall, moving

Anyway, it's all messed up and doesn't have the pattern for the "Country Sunflower". I was wondering if anyone else has a Sept/Oct '09 issue and are they all like that? I'd really

For one flower, you need
2 -- 5" squares of fabric 1
2 -- 5" squares of fabric 2
1 -- 4" square for center
4 -- 2.5" squares of background
Sew each background square onto one corner of your four 5" squares. Trim seam to 1/4" and press toward the background color

I used Warm & Natural batting. It's a bit heavy as it's got so many (thousands,

by just turning it over.
This one is "Buggy Wheels". I used white sashing and white binding on this side.

It's pieced with a QAYG method. Thanks Postal

I just finished piecing this top this afternoon. It's for my youngest son's best bud's baby sister - who was born cough-last December-cough. Yeah, it's a bit late...
The pattern for the dogs is from the Dare to be Square book. The original pattern makes a S shaped dog on the front of the quilt which would be fabulous if the baby's name began with a S but it begins with
