    This group is growing nicely! Yay! Some had concerns about using certain fabrics. I'm determined not to buy any new fabrics (yea, right LOL) and I think I'm going to do mine in batiks. I've been to a few shows and expos recently and I bought some precuts and just 1-2 yard pieces. I think these will work well--hope so. I also thought about using Christmas fabrics. I buy these beautiful Christmas fabrics thinking I'll make a Christmasy quilt but never have--maybe now. Hmmmm--decisions, decisions!

    Hello, janRN, I love love love batiks and I imagine the blocks would be beautiful in batiks. . . . . but, I think this project would be wonderfully beautiful in Christmas fabrics! If there is a vote, I vote Christmas. Can't wait to see whatever you do!

    janRN, I agree with jtquilts that Christmas fabrics would make a beautiful quilt, so that's my vote too!

    marinerparent, I guess you could use a different paper piecing technique, but you will need the book for the block patterns. Hopefully the picture of the sampler quilt I posted helped answer some of your questions.

    Fabric Galore, this is plain paper piecing on foundation papers. You don't have to make a patriotic quilt. The fabric choices are up to you. You could use fabrics from that era, civil war fabrics or even modern fabrics to update it! janRN may do hers in Christmas fabric. What fun!

    I pulled out my box of Christmas fabrics and you all have me leaning in that direction. There's only one problem--I may not have enough and would have to force myself to go fabric shopping. Darn!! LOL. One thing I've learned from all the paper piecing I've done lately is that FQs and other precuts work well so I don't have to buy large pieces. But, darn, another shopping trip. (Can you see me smiling?)

    I'm very tempted but I think I have to pass. I have too many projects already and am behind on most of them! Maybe I will catch up later.

    Jan, I'm so sorry you have to go on another shopping trip

    Anael, glad you're back from holiday. I blame you and the other Pony Club gals for my addiction to paper piecing!! This one is fewer blocks so I'm excited to take on another project. Think about joining us--you know you want to!!

    Oh dear, I'm guilty
    I want to but when I look at my to-do list I don't! I'm still contemplating..... I have to catch up with the Pony blocks before I even consider starting another project!

    JanRN ... I heard that! I'm loving that you have fallen for PPing. It seems to me that you were stomping your feet jot so long ago and swearing NO WAY to PPing. Not gonna do it!! And look at you now ...... I'm so proud of you. (PS ... check your email pls!)

    Anael
    ... and she blames US? ha! I'm riding in the back of the PC pack for now too, so you have company in the "maybe" department!

    It's a llllllllllllong time til September Ladies, so, who knows?

    Just a few years behind you PatriciaFaye ... one of the hot songs the summer I finished Grade 9 ... and had a huge crush on a town boy from school!

    Question? .. the PP patterns ... do they come on a CD like the PC patterns have? Or do they need to be copied from the hard copy in the book? Or?



    DublB ... glad you enjoyed the ♪♪♫♫♪♪

    I wish they did come on CD, but you have to be copy them from the hard copy in the book.

    Thanks PFaye ... I'm We have a ten Shop Hop this month, and I'm going to watch for the book and see if it draws me in. I'll admit, I'm not so excited with the idea of needing to make my own copies!
