    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
  5. 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.
  6. declared war on my scrap bag: resulting reversible QAYG quilt

    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.

    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

    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

    This was started in 2008 for friend,Peg. She had some scraps of her favorite fabric from the 70's. I made her a tote and the rest of the scraps went here. It was going to be bigger but..... The batik coral is what was left and this is what they grew into. Now to get it quilted. This will be her 60th birthday surprise.

    pattern is PP: Double Pink Kaleidoscope
