    I have about 20 QST done, and about 80 more cut and ready to be pieced, oh my, this is slow going. I can't believe we are already on step number 4 lol.

    I know what you mean. I'm afraid my sewing machine may eat them as they go over the feed dogs!

    I am finished with step #4. I hope we are finished with paper for awhile. I have to admit I really do not like removing paper.

    WOW! These QST's are taking a long time to make. I've been working on them on and off for what seems like days--I now have about 53 completed and the rest cut and made into HST to then sew together. But, I'm enjoying making them.

    WOW you are on a roll!! I'm working on them between Christmas gifts I'm trying to get finished and in the mail. I swear sometimes I think I have ADA. I can only work on the same pattern for a short period of time before I begin to loose my mind and need to move on to somethingelse. That's my excuse for all the UFO's I have

    Oh I know what you mean!! They are making me crazy(er) Remember this is the 2nd time I've done them because the first ones came out too small I've moved on to the other steps and come back and work on these when I have time. Let's just hope there are no more of these danged things!!!

    I"m telling you the inklingo is the way to go. I made all of the HST's in alittle under 2.5 hours. The QST's too alittle longer but only because you have to iron so dang much. You just print the pattern on the wrong side of the light fabric which is attached to freezer paper. Separate the fabric from the freezer paper after you print on it and layer it with your darks. sew on the dotted lines, cut on the solid lines, and press and your done. I never could have done the HST's or the QST's without this technique. It inexpensive, just $20 for the designs but you never have to buy anything again unlike the trianglations. nothing to sell, just a very satisfied customer.

    I know using Triangulations or inklingo are both easier ways to make mulitiples of HST or QST, but the problem would be the fact that you would be making so many of them alike, since you stack the light and darks. I'm trying to do mine all scrappy, mixing the fabrics all up, but I found that I was driving myself crazy trying to make sure I didn't have duplicates. So I finally just did them in groups, and hopefully won't have many duplicates.

    I discovered I actually have 55 finished and squared up QST's! The squaring up to 2.5" has taken a long time too! I'm noticing that some of mine are coming out a scant small so am only sewing scant 1/4" seams. For those you haven't started the first part of making the QST's, I would definitely recommend cutting the original squares at 3.5" not 3.25"to be sure the finished sewing will be 2.5."

    To make the HST, I used "Stitching Lines" by Marin & Colusa. I know the gal who makes these, and they make it really easy-but you do have the tear off the paper, as in the strings!

    I would rather be doing Christmas, but I don't have anyone to celebrate with. I keep busy, so I don't really have to dwell on it.

    Darn Sadie wish you were closer. I have a small family and would love to have you over. When I was with my parents we had family get together's that were huge but now with my kids scattered all over the country and the fact that I am widowed any celebration is very small.

    I wish I lived closer also. I just looked at where you live. When my DH and DMIL were alive we used to go and visit my MIL a couple of times a year. She lived in Eugene and then in Springfield.

    When my DM was still alive we had huge family dinners for every holiday. Now I see my sister quite a lot, but the rest of my family I don't see very often. It is really quite sad.

    Sadie: It is sad that we don't live in the tight communities that used to be the norm. There are a lot of Board members that live here in Springfield. I think it would be great fun to get together at some time. We do have the Sisters Quilt Show in July, lets think about it.

    Congrats on the QTS!

    To post the emoticons from pics4ever, highlight and copy the link in the FIRST column to use on this forum. (If you want to use them in a regular email, do the same thing, but copy the link in the last column instead of the first.) Paste it into your message. I usually just click on it, CTRL C, tab over to the message, and then CTRL V where I want it. If that's what you did, then I don't know what's the matter

    I have been looking at last years Bonnie Hunter Mystery called Roll Roll Cotton Bowl. I don't have the dimentions and size of the blocks - all I have is the photos of the steps. Help! Can anyone remember the sizes to cut those cute little squares? I didn't print it at the time and it is not published yet.

    I'd like all y'alls opinion on something. My colors are pink/teal/brown/cream and I'm making this quilt for my second daughter. Her bridesmaids dresses were brown satin and I have ALOT of it left. I really want to make my HST using this satin, but the bolt says dry clean. I know during the life of the quilt it will not always be dry cleaned. I washed a piece in hot water with some towels. HAHA It seems ok. Oh I really really want to use this... What do you think?

    I think since you gave it a good test by washing it, you've done your quality check. Why not wash the pieces you'll be using before you cut it. Hope it doesn't wrinkle. Washing probably decrases the shine, which would be fine. It's a nice keepsake to use her fabric. I did that once for my daughter and she loves the quilt!

    I'm sorry, I don't know anything about that mystery. I do know that Bonnie has pulled it off her website because it's going to be in her next book. We can't post any information or share any files anyone may have on it because it would be some kind of copyright violation and Patrice will boink me on the head if we do!!
