    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

The quilt is a Baby Elegance pattern from Black Cat Creations, and the boots are a Curby's Closet pattern. I had so much fun making them! I hope you enjoy!

    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
  7. 11-minute flowers .... 14-month quilt?

    Well, I finally am finishing up a quilt made from these blocks. I still have to do the binding, but wanted to share; I'M SO GLAD TO BE (nearly) DONE! It's king sized, so it was quite a challenge to quilt on my regular sewing machine, even though I have one with a large harp space.
  8. declared war on my scrap bag: resulting reversible QAYG quilt

    by just turning it over.

    This one is "Buggy Wheels". I used white sashing and white binding on this side.

    Remember when Postal Packin Mama posted this quilt earlier this summer? Well, I was so inspired that I just had to make one of my own. I never dreamed that it would use up so many scraps, but my scrap drawers are now empty and I am one happy camper! It's big 120" by 120" and heavy, which will be wonderful come winter time. It's pieced with a QAYG method. Thanks Postal
