    So last night DH and I were eating dinner. He had on a T-shirt from Birney Falls, CA that had a Native American design with a turned square in the center. I am looking at the design trying to figure out how I can make a quilt block of it! I had reached for a ruler to measure if it was close to 12" when I realized he would probably have me committed. I will wait until it is in the laundry! I love Native American decor so it will get done.

    Yeah, I thought about being committed BUT you can't have sharp or pointy objects-no scissors, no pins or needles and no sewing machines. I worked inpatient and I realized real quick I would not do well in that environment. Plus they won't let you stay up all nite to finish a project. I grit my teeth and deal with what I have, the alternative is not what you want. :cry: :mrgreen: :XD:

    I lived in Fall River Mills for several years. It's about 10 miles from BURNEY FALLS. We in Fall River and the town of Burney had a wonderful Quilt guild. I have many friends from there.

    We moved to Oregon in 2005. But, I have some wonderful memories of FR and Burney Falls.

    Edge...I thought it was a natural progression of quilting obsession....think I fell off it a while ago. Now my family just shake their heads and let me get on with it.

    It reminds me of a friend of mine's story. She needed a certain shade of blue to finish a quilt pictute. Her husband had just put on his pjs . "That's it!!!" She ran and got her scissors, cut out a hunk and finished her quilt. At least you restrained yourself until he takes it off.

    I have been fortunate enough to have the chance to visit Europe, and of course, spent WAY too much time taking photos of cathedral floors!! What beautiful patterns...my husband thought I was nuts, but the quilt in my avatar is a memory of time we spent in Italy. It hangs in his office and he loves it.

    You should be able to draft it out on graph paper. I use 4 to the inch graph paper all the time. Have around 50 graph notebooks with designs in them. I've been at this for 44 years and have always used the notebooks to sketch ideas.
