    I bought a package of charm squares from each of the fabric collections plus all the solids too. I have about 4 collections of charm squares I bought from Missouri Star last winter so when I finish all my projects that are laying around, I plan on doing some of these charm square quilts. The fabric charm squares I bought are really beautiful.

    Burch - I know what you are saying. I saw the Mirage sampler - like the light colors (more pastels) and my fingers are itching to hit the ORDER button. Noticed that I also need some more greens to go with the batik collection for my flower panels.....oh - that $50 free shipping won't be a problem....
    Deb Watkins - I woke up today on the right side of dirt. It is a good day.

    I got the charms in my last order & they are stunning! I'm thinking about getting a couple of jelly rolls to make a 1600!
    Won't you need more than 2 rolls? The 1600 takes two 40 strip rolls and it looks like the CT ones are 24. Three CT jelly rolls will have 72 strips which is closer. I love all the spring batiks and the pastel Mirage fabrics. CT will be busy. They must love the QB.

    Deb, I just discovered shadow trapunto and now you show me shadow appliqué. Well, there's always the doll quilt swap to try it. Fortunately, the 5 yards of skitter organza I bought for my niece's wedding dress is still in my sewing room. She changed her mine, and I thought. "well, there are still three more". That was five years ago. And yes, the merry go around is turning and will complete its rotation by the end of next week.

    Since I know nothing about any new techniques, clearly I need to get out more, LOL.

    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.

    A Jelly Roll 1600 only takes 1 jelly roll. (1600 inches / 40 strips = 40 inches per strip, which is about width of fabric.)
    So two sets of CT jelly rolls will be about right, since most include 20-24 strips.

    I LOVE the CT batiks, but have convinced myself NOT to purchase any...

    Oh, and I have the Morning Glory block applique'd, have decided to unpin the organza and sashiko a butterfly near each flower. I know, I am just a tease. It will be posted soon......I am really hooked on these.

Size:  264.4 KBThis is the second block from Shadow Applique' that I promised to post. This is for my Uncle. My Aunt died last November. Uncle loves Morning Glories, and Aunt loved butterflies. I am hoping this will bring him some comfort when he sees how much I loved her.

    Batiks are so pretty but I have none. I don't really know how to use them.

    The shine-y part of this is the organza over the block. All the stitching is done on top of that. At first one thinks,"Oh, all those tiny pieces", but once they are 'stuck' on, the whole block comes together very fast. Batiks are really the best for these blocks, but I am thinking that Asian fabrics with small print would also be stunning. Looking for the next pattern to do! OH.... and I placed another order from CT for the summer FQ marbled sampler.....and then saw the SALE fabric, and ordered some of that as well.

    The Jelly Roll Race pattern (that I got off the board here) I've been using 40 strips so I figured 2 rolls would be enough. Plus I usually add in a couple of extra strips of the border fabric I'm using to tie it together a little bit. What 1600 pattern do you use? How big does yours end up being?

    They are super yummy! My DH "needs" another lap quilt & since he likes earth-tones, I was thinking about getting the dark selection. They are just yummy... no two ways about it!
