    Elle, you have to post when you get all your fabrics together. You know we want to watch EVERY step of this! Someday, when I grow up...I want to be able to do one of her quilts :wink: In the meantime...I wanna watch you do yours!

    I recently had a question regarding the Raindrops pattern I am making by Judy Niemeyer. She has a website where you can email/call her directly at quiltworx.com.
    I want to make this quilt also, so please show us when you are done!
    Good Luck

    Okay dokey will do, I have some at the moment so will take a picture.

    Have just ordered some more, but have to get quite a bit more for this. think I now have 7 complete yards and have a few 1/2 yrds that maybe I can fit into the pattern because it looks pretty random and I think you could do a swoppy or two.

    Oh I nearly bought that one to, that is also beautiful, she does some fab work and it is all hand done. Awesome.

    Will do Sheree when I get the pattern, they have just posted it today so should get it in about 10 days.

    Tapping foot, waiting ...... more waiting. :D

    okay pics of the fabric I have got so far.

    The three in a row are all 1 yards, the others are 1/2 yards.

    They are so pretty I like to take them out and look at them from time to time.

    Think the bottom right hand has to go, it doesn´t blend well, in any case its a very small piece with butterflies on it. Maybe make the label with it

    Terri, You will fall in love with one of our dogs his name is Toby and he is a white Bichon Freze (spelling) he is just the most loving dog I have ever come across and all he asks in life is for a cuddle, many nights he falls asleep in my arms like a baby.

    You know, I'm not really a dog person, but for some reason, dogs love me. As Machel...her poodle Hannah, is actually MY dog....Hannah loves me more! lol

    Lucky you! You figured it out!

    The quilt measurements you sited are 68"x78" = 5'8"x 6'6" which equals
    4.42 square feet ... hmmm ... I may be doing the math incorrectly ...
    let's try this: 5304 square inches ... in 20 fat quarters, you have 7920 square inches ... that should do it!

    You were right fat quarters.
    did I do that all correctly?

    Well you just blew my mind with all that maths. I am fairly new to quilting and have mainly done applique so haven´t needed to be maths proficient (unfortunatley I am not) I believe you Omak. I am going on the fat quarter calculation, and that works out.

    THANK YOU so much Elle :D
    I'm not so good with the math either. If the lady at the LQS says 2 and 1/2 yards, I say give me three. If she says half a yard, I say give me a yard, etc. It's helping to build my stash, at least. On my last trip to the LQS, I (or we) goofed. I like to cut my sashing and borders on the straight of grain (following the selvege). Well, my longest pieces came up about 10 inches short. So, I had to piece. Oh well, no one's perfect.

    The next time I need calculations for amt. of fabric, I'll call Butterflyspain. OK? She's really rattling off those numbers. :thumbup:

    Gail G,
    I have to point out that I am a dum dum when it comes to figures. :oops: Omak and Bearisgrey are the brains on this forum.

    I had to call them in to figure out what I needed. :D have to say you must be building up quite a stash.

    On yea!! Every corner of my sewing/craft/everything room is filled with bins, the closet is full of fabric and unfinished projects and our bedroom is piled high with bins.

    I'll have to remember that about the math whizzes. Thanks.
