    Mary, When I wash my fat quarters I put them in one of those mesh bags that are for undies and thingys and wash on gentle. I have not had to snip corners on the fats since I started to do that. Just thought of it while reading your message. Also I use a rotary cutter with a pinking blade when I do sides or corners. :D

    Never thought of that, I do have two of them. I do have a pinking blade for my rotary cutter too, haven't used that yet either.

    Am sewing my little triangles together until my lunch is ready.

    no, Donna, she doesnt. But I thot I'd combine some time with her before we leave the west coast and get some sewing in while I was there. With all the packing I still have to do for the move I may not have much time to sew again until we get settled in out new place

    lol. Thanks DonnaRae. Decided to quilt my Lemon Lime Delight quilt. I have it hanging on my design wall, which I need so I can decide how I want to put my Boxy Stars blocks.

    If anyone stills needs a ruler for step two, the easy angle, (which could be used for more projects) there is one on ebay for $2.99

    This is what the ad reads.
    Kit includes the following:
    4.5" Easy Angle (for cutting half square triangles)
    Quilting pins
    Finger Guard thimble
    Pattern for wallhanging quilt 42" x 42"

    Thats pretty cheap for everything. plus $2.99 postage It is a buy now not bid and has 12 more hours.

    I found it looking for other rulers. Here is the addy

    Yes, .25 is one-quarter of an inch. 4.25" = 4-1/4". Have fun!

    Nope, no idea. She at one time said two to three weeks but last time it was only about a week. Anyway I have not even started three so I hope it is no time soon. Been way to busy! How about a picture of your blocks. We love to see them! :D

    I think it's been about 2 weeks apart. She posted part 3 early cause she was going out of town.

    Thanks Mary, Yours look really nice too.

    I ripped out more on step 3 than any other step, for some reason I kept sewing the little triangles together wrong. I'm ready for a break, I've got a baby quilt to get done this month.

    Thanks. It did seem to take a little longer to do fewer pices on part 3. Had to re-read and refer back to the picture quite a bit to get them done.

    I guess I better get started in case I have errors while sewing them. Pam, your blocks look great. I love the stripes. Should be interesting when we see the end result. :!: :D

    Thank goodness for that, I need a bit more time too. Just finished step 2, Started cutting for step 3 today and made an absolute mess of it, I kept getting the math wrong for the little triangles and had to keep re-cutting them, Grrrr. Oh well plenty of new scraps for the scrap bin :lol: I must of had some sort of brain fug, I kept adding the wrong amount of seam allowance to the wrong measurement :roll: :lol:
    Luv your colours Mary, do I see a similar peice of green leopard skin print in yours? Those stripes are way kewl Pam. Can't wait to see how all these parts are gonna be put together :P .
