    Default Chatter Quilts

    A very close friend gave me boxes of the most wonderful little pieces of fabric, about 2 inches long and an inch wide with star points on each end. Hope that makes sense. She told me they were called "Chatter Quilts." I can't find anything about them. They would go together like a PSQ and I plan to do that, but I'd sure like to know more about them. Does anyone know about these wonderful quilts? I can't wait to get to working with them, but then if I live to be 150 I just might get to do all the wonderful things that quilting offers.
    Thanks much,
    Betty

    I don't know either but will be watching for an answer. Also don't know what PSQ stands for..Please enlighten me. Sounds interesting...Thinking of all those snips and strips I end up putting out for birds or throw away. Tx Carol

    I can't quite picture anything but a pointed Dresden Plate petals? PSQ means postage stamp quilt to me and that is usually squares?

    Sorry, PSQ is postage stamp quilt and is made with little squares from 1 inch up to 2.5 inches. They are a lot of fun so let the birds find another source of scraps.

    I'm lousy at trying to describe things. This might help. Picture a rectangle 2" by 1" and then put a triangle on the top and the bottom. The friend who gave me the pieces says she has a pattern book somewhere in her treasures and that she will find it. I sure hope so, but I can always use them as in a PSQ if not. Thank you for your interest.

    BettyGee - Please show us what these are when you get the book as I could not find anything about them either. Very curious. Sounds really nice.

    Duh, yes I guess a picture would sure help. Like the old saying, if my head wasn't attached I'd lose that too. I will do a picture and then you will see why I'm so tickled at having all of these wonderful little pieces of fabric.
