I put everything in one e mail so no one has to click to go to my Flickr album where I store the rest of all the information that you see attached here and below. There are a few notes on the foundation page about the number of blocks and the border sizes as shown.

    I also included coloring sheets in case you want to do you own variation. Pattern makes

  3. Jelly Roll Tote Bags

    by , 01-18-2014 at 04:11 PM
    I am looking for tote bag patterns using the Jelly Rolls. I have one at home that I love from Thimbleberries but does not help me here. If you have any and can share them I would appreciate it. I am making them for Pay it Forward Gifts.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.


  4. Bed Sheets as Backing Question

It's also hard to find individual sheets sold separately.
    I have bought sets of sheets and used the bottom ones for smaller quilts. Works for me ...

  7. Tree skirt part 2

    by , 01-16-2014 at 01:36 PM
    I've added the sashing. There actually is a split in the center so the (fake) tree trunk can go thru. I also realized I could use it on one of my tables, just put something over the split...
