    I found a charm pack at Walmart to test this out. I used 25 charms (5 per row) and added a 3" border.
    I put clear tape on my ruler and traced the lines from the instruction sheet.

    This is the first time I've posted with multiple pics.....I'm hoping everything shows up ok

    This is how I did my template.

  5. Another scrappy quilt from leftover scraps

    The squares were all triangles, sewn together, they were various sizes and some had to be trimmed down.
    The back is pieced backing pieces, didn't take a pic of it.

    But then I have all these other ones left over.
    Put them in the middle?
    Or should I do sets of four squares and just move them around?
    OR ... pinwheels?
    And then there

  7. Thanks to ThePolyParrot

    That darling, thepolyparrot (whose location is Mars!), gave me some terrific ideas - Here

    Progress report: two rows done. Looked at them and realized I have to rip apart the first one.

    Lesson learned - now I know why quilters plan their quilts BEFORE they start to put them together.

    Another adventure.

  8. Tips for Quilt

    by , 02-04-2012 at 03:22 PM

    Last week we took a day trip to Calico Ghost Town and there was the cutest Quilt Shop there. I went in and talked to the lady working there. She gave me some great tips and I now feel a little more confidant than ever that I'm on the right track to getting this
