    I traced all the pieces and checked them off as I did. They were grouped according to colors and put into plastic bags. Now I am ready to build my applique and somehow three pieces are missing. Not possible but..........

    Do you have a cat or dog that likes to carry things around?

    Do you have small kids who love to play with your toys?

    They will show up, if you're sure you had them to start with.
    I"ve done that, just knew I'd lost them and discovered that I'd never cut them out to start with.

    They'll show up, don't worry about them. Of course it may be Christmas by then but they will show up.

    It happens to me all the time. If it isn't one thing it is another that them gremlins are taking from me. As soon as you cut what you need you will find the missing pieces.

    Horse is gorgeous - good luck finding it - did it fall behind your machine?

    If you haven't found them yet..take a deep calming breathe. Now look under your white backround paper piece, under your cutting matte, under your sewing machine, in your jeans pockets. If you still can't find them...take a deep calming breathe. Then go eat chocolate and look for them another day....lol
    Hope they turn up soon.

    Yep, as soon as you replace them, you will find them. I have gremlins here, too. Love the horse! Nice work!

    Just what everyone else said, once you get them,the others will show up and you will have another reason to make 2 of them. Great workmanship. Don't forget to show us the completed project!

    Don't stress ... just cut some new pieces!

    And no sooner will you have them cut ... and the original ones will show their little faces. :)


    Amazing horse!!!!!!!!!

    Am I dreaming this ... or is this horse, the full top of your quilt?
    And where on earth did you get the pattern, please!

    It's a Toni Whitney pattern enlarged 250 percent. It will have a green background and greenish string blocks around the center. Tomorrow I'll dig out the fabric and cut the four missing pieces. Then I can start the other horse. It sure beats piecing for me!!

    Holy cow! Are you sure you didn't inhale them by mistake? Some of those pieces look no bigger than a fingernail. :)

    W*O*W* The horse is absolutely stunning. As you can see from my avatar, I like horses (actually one of my granddaughters likes horses). I will have to check out that pattern.

    Yes. Her wolf pattern was more brown than gray.

    I love your horse quilt!! I even bookmarked it when I first saw it. My next horse will have logcabin blocks and is jumping out of the frame. Also by Toni Whitney (Royal). Thank you for the inspiration!!

    It will be the surrounding blocks of the horse quilt. I bought some Bali Pops on sale and cut them in half then started to "string" them. Anything to get the piecing done so I can play with the applique!

    Static? I "found" pieces once - after they had been fused under something else. If anyone ever mentions it, my reply will be to the effect of an experiment in texture.

    cjomomma is so right. Back when I was a smoker the one way to make the bus get here quick was to light a cigarette!
