    Good morning....my QBuddy and I are going on a FART today....she needs a backing for her GD's wedding quilt...we haven't gotten together since March...what happened to our monthly get togethers? Enjoy your trip, too. QNS..

    Wow 100 RxR stores in Iowa...yesterday I kitted up another batch of ours..before I had them all bagged I had sold one. I guess it is well liked.

    Love hearing what everyone is doing or why they aren't getting something done..have a good one...

    Have fun Gladdie and NinaSue! Today I am still ironing all the new fabric I got on my FARTs, after prewashing it. I really like to have everything prewashed and pressed. Somehow I enjoy ironing my new fabric. Fabric makes me happy.

    Here is Iowa's 100 shops that are doing RxR.... with pictures of each shop's row and plate. I wish every state had this kind of picture chart.

    Scroll down to page 10 and look at the row for The Fabric Stasher in Tipton... the cat on it is so beautiful!

    Next week I get mailers from Wal Mart and mail licenses I have to all of you. That's JeanieG, Dublb, Honchey, SBG, and JuneBilly. If I am in any other quilt shop, I will pick up more but not planning on it right now. I turned in my passport to the All Iowa Quilt Shop Hop to Cindy Lou's in Chariton, Iowa, where I started on the first day of June and turned in 19 shop stamps to her today. I blew out the budget today and found great wonderful things at all four quilt shops. Ready to get some things done, and get to the stage of doing new stuff. IF I left off anyone's name please let me know. Kinda like if we left someone at the last quilt store, please speak up . . as we pull back onto the main road. Let me know when you receive your surprise in the mail.

    It rained here today, I yelled at my Dh and said, " run outside quick so you can get wet!" Yep, the little storm blew on by before he could get out to get wet! Big cracks are in teh ground, water bill was $$$ too much and we need that rain.

    NinaSue, please show us your loot when you get a chance.

    I have just packaged up license plates to Bev and QNS... on their way to you tomorrow! Anyone else out there want to trade? My plates are Mississippi and say "Bless Ur Heart". I'm saving one for you too, Honchey.

    Today I completely finished my embroidery quilt top, Aunt Bea's Parlor. The double sawtooth border was a booger. Lots of resewing to make those fit! I think this is the nicest quilt I've even done. Gonna ponder how to quilt it....

    I also made a "Quick Strippie" quilt top for charity tonight. So easy, and they always look good (as long as you use a bigger print, a smaller print or tonal, and a solid for the smallest strips.)

    If you haven't ever tried this pattern, it really does go together in about an hour, and that includes the cutting. Great stash buster, too.

    SBG, you must have an air-conditioned home? to enjoy ironing in July! :-) We had some rain last night, so ironing would be ok today, but some of those June days! I was dripping sweat. :-p

    I had the same question about 'what is KT' earlier in this thread. And the funny thing about that was that I was using Kansas Troubles fabrics at the time making a quilt top! I've just received it back from a friend who did an all-over stipple quilting pattern on it for me with her long arm. I'm looking forward to putting it up for auction after I get the binding on, to donate the resulting bid to my church missionaries. I'll add a picture of it.

    I won't scroll back to read all the chatting I've missed. I hope you all have been fine and getting done what you have planned to do! :-) I've had overtime at work, so I've not been so much online. I'm going to try to move forward on my FWS blocks over the holiday weekend.

    I got side-tracked with a twin size quilt lately. But now it's finished. I found some cute fabric that I thought would be nice using the stack-and-whack method. I cut triangles, and was sort of disappointed in the result. I thought the stacks would look more interesting, but maybe the pattern of the fabric was too big. I don't know. I'm just beginning experiments with S&W. I'd like to get some tips from QNS, if you have some! :-) Here's a couple of pictures of it. I'm calling this quilt "Let's go to the beach together" (like the text in the fabric!). A nice top to finish during the summer. :-)

    Hello to everyone. I meant to add this last night an forgot. I have been going over a lot of things, and I also need to go by a fabric shop to get fabric etc. to make my son and daughter in law a smallish quilt for a gift for their repeating their vowels this summer.

    Therefore, I won't be able to be in on the exchange of any license plates. I am so sorry, because if I did do it I would want to do it with all of you. So QNS please take me off the list.

    Givio those are beautiful quilts.

    Air conditioning? Oh, heck yes! Everything here in the deep South is A/C'd... Don't know how they made it back during my grandmother's days. Every day during the hot summer was spent trying to survive it. Sometimes I get tired of being cold and just go sit on the porch for a while and experience summer! Hubby keeps it like an icebox in here.

    Good to see a post from you, Givio! Your KT quilt is drop dead gorgeous! I don't know enough to be able to tell the dif between KT and Civil War fabrics. Really like the fabric and sampler patterns in your beautiful quilt. The stack n whack is cute and fun too. I really like how the sashing changes a few shades as you move towards the outside of the quilt. Very cool, and that orange looks good with the other colors.

    JuneBillie, it's okay if you can't swap license plates. Be sure to show us that quilt you will make for your son and dil....

    I think the only one that had my address, is QNS. If you have sent one to me already, I will send it back to you, but with something extra. Or, there is one shop I would be passing next week, and I could check to see if they have one I could send to you. I always do right by anyone.

    Lovely quilts, givio. Will send you an email with promised information.

    Jenebilly, do not worry. Your packet is addressed and will be mailed with the others. There is no rush, it runs into Sepetember with Row by Row.

    The Shopping Trip last Thursday was four shops. My goal was more KT to finish Stars Crossed:Name:  1-DSCN0557.JPG

    We are dressing out our old hens every morning and will finish them (four hens) tomorrow. I am so happy we don't have a big bunch to do!

    QNS - what great fabric you found! I would love the 30 to 50% off room. When in Phoenix, I always go first to their huge rack that is $3.00 first. Anyway can't beat their regular price of $6.99 for all their fabric, except backing fabrics. Love looking at their sewing machines too. They have quite a few that are trade-ins, plus all the new ones. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you make from them.

    I love the new pattern called "Savannah" I found in Cameron, Mo, Crossroads Quilts. It's a four patch sewn together with slashing and corner stone. All my scraps can be cut up and used in that. Bucket list is growing.... but its one step at a time through the list.

    Loved seeing your pretty fabrics and plates, QNS! Cindy Lou's is a place that Bonnie Hunter always blogs about. She loves to go there. She says it's gotten more expensive tho... used to be a cheap place for fabric. I see they had plenty of KT in stock!

    By the way, how does one know what is KT? Is it marked that way? I would have a hard time differentiating it from civil war fabric. Are they different?

    I went back to Hancocks today... been a week and they still haven't marked the batting down from 50%. The big sign outside said "Everything 60-80% off". Despite that they still wouldn't sell me the wool batting for 60% off. Nobody buys wool batting here. I'll wait til the final days and walk out with it, yet!

    I did get a couple more prints for a song. Wanted to go to a quilt shop too, but didn't realize they closed at 3pm! So, another day...

    NinaSue, meant to say how pretty Stars Crossed looks! What will you do in the white areas?

    I'm going to look up the Savannah pattern you mentioned.

    Savannah is from www.redcrinolinequilts.com Kerry, Texas. It is one of their simplistic patterns and lots of Civil War Patterns. Best thing to use up scraps in a hurry...I am excited about that!

    KT means Kansas Trouble from Moda fabrics.

    Doing FM blocks 89 and 90 this weekend. skipped two, may go back and do them if I decide too or not. Sunday is a day of rest for us...I hope ti is. and that the rain continues to drizzle down moisture for our plants. Have a good one.

    QNS, I looked at Red Crinoline Quilts and fell in love with Sarah Emma (right above your Savannah quilt) and also Regimental Star (3 above Savannah). Regimental Star also uses a lot of scraps. They are beautiful quilts.

    Spent tonight cutting hundreds (thousands?) of 5" I Spy squares for the little kits I sell. It usually takes me an entire day or more to cut and bag maybe a dozen kits! Will be glad to have this job done and get back to sewing.

    Happy Sunday everyone...

    Me thinks you had a good time shopping Nina I checked out the Savannah pattern..nice big 4 patch squares!!

    SBG. You, also, are a very busy person..I can't imagine doing all that the both of you do...

    I have to start gathering the stuff I'll be taking home with me I AM leaving some behind this time ..it seems to be so hard for me to be without it all even tho I know there's no way I can work on any of it all at the same time..With me it's a little bit here little bit there.
    I've been helping some of the ladies in the stitchers group figuring out patterns..

    My PT is done and the ankle is 50 % better..Have excersizes to do..one of them is to step sideways with knees bent...so I'm going to start walking sideways in the house. Ha Ha, I think that is so funny..

    Everyone have a wonderful Independence Day tomorrow. There will be lots of Fireworks going on around here...

    Have good day all. H.

    You are up early Honchey. Good morning to you! Glad to hear your ankle is fifty percent better. What is that dance that you step sideways? Two step maybe?

    My QR days are going to work.... Quilt Room days are marked on the calendar! Progress on all that fabric I have in that room...hurrah! Baby steps, but going forward...SBG, I have made a couple of I SPY quilts...they are cute.

    Yes , firecrackers go off around here, if we cared to watch. It is a lot of noise, just hope no one gets hurt from it. Each in our own way, we celebrate the Day. Have a good safe holiday.

    Good morning! I should have mentioned that I used my GO cutter to cut all those squares...

    Anne, that's a good exercise and will strengthen your ankles. In my Silver Sneakers class we do that same movement, but with a stretchy exercise cord under our feet, crossed between the knees and then pulled up snug at the waistline. It's the same but with some resistance added. Gets the hips burning too!

    I usually just want to stay home and hide from the crowds on the 4th... Will be grilling outside and eating watermelon with dh and ds... and wishing America a happy birthday!

    Happy 4th, everyone!

    I'm going on my first shop hop on Saturday. I could look to see if any of the shops participate with the license plates-- if anyone wants one from Michigan. Let me know if you do, then I'll pick one up for you. I'm assuming the things are fabric and people use them to sew something?
    QNS, yes, I got your message and will look into the books you mention. The pdf you sent me was for making paperpieced 4" blocks, so I'm not sure if you meant to send a different pdf with Stack and Whack ideas or if you meant to send the pdf you sent. I'm always glad for new patterns though, so thank you! :-)
    SBG, I usually wait for the Pellon Wool batting to go on sale at JoAnn's before I buy it. I like wool better than cotton. Do they have full bolts of wool batting left? Unfortunately, I don't have a Hancocks going out of business near where I live.
    Honchey, That is a funny mental picture, seeing you walking sideways with knees bent. :-)

    Givio - I would like a license plate from MI! I'll send you one from CA in return! I found some really cute ones at a Quilt shop in Thousand Oaks, CA. I don't know if the Ventura (my hometown) shop has them, her website did not show any. Send me your mailing address in a PM.

    I figured you had a cutter of some kind SBG! I cut my scraps into Bonnie Hunter sizes with my Sizzix Big Shot.

    Givio, yes, they are fabric license plates and people put them in their quilts or make tote bags with them. They sell from about $5 to $8, depending on the shop. I bought a few to trade and still have one left, if you would like to trade. We have been swapping 'one for one', regardless of price. PM me with your address if you want to trade.
