    Okay. That's like foundation by the yard by Berartex. It comes in many quilt block designs. You buy as much as you need. Here's a link to another forum on this site from 2010.

    To me, it seems by the site they provided that a peeper is what we call a folded border if that helps.

    I to have learned something new today. The funny thing is that just last night I finished cutting out 1"strips to do just that on my 9-Patch on point quilt. Had no idea that it had a name other then a folded edge. Thank you.

    log Cabin blocks are made here by using strips of material running one way for the top half of the block and then reverse the strips going the other way or down the block, using made by using four blocks to make a 12" block.

    An old nickname for eyes is peepers as in the fun song- Jeepers creepers, Where'd you get those peepers. I once corresponded with a lady from NZ and had to explain what New Englanders call Fall Leaf Peepers (changing foliage tourists). Glad the mystery is solved. This was Fun!

    I am still laughing at this posting. Thanks for that!!! And as someone else said, we sure have gotten a "peeper education" today!!! Who knew there could be so many kinds of "peepers"?

    I also thought of baby chicks and the peeps candy (still love them). I was waiting to see a log cabin quilt block made from different fabrics all with baby chicks on it.

    Hi Heather from another Queenslander. I saw this on QB a while back and kept it because it looked interesting. Didn't know it was called peepers. To me peepers are eyes. Guess that shows my age. I hope these pics help.

    I am so confused --peepers are candy chicks that was only yellow- now multi-colors .Also peppers are frogs which we call peet frogs who are singing for a mate.Egg crate is foam. I truly think I have been smelling paint to long and the day is far to spent.Maybe you can find a log cabin pattern on equilters.

    Ahhhh! We used to call that piping. Sometimes, there was a cord running through the piping/peeper.

    I still don't know what the OP was looking for - but the various definitions of 'peepers' has been fun!

    thanks for the picture with the scissors holding the fold up and the one above it. That really shows what it is. I can see why you would not need any batting. I also have the peeper frogs and they give me a wonderful noisy concert every evening in the spring. smile.

    Such a fun thread! We're getting educated in Oz talk - and Aussies and Kiwis are getting educated in regional Yank talk.

No need for batting as the blocks use a bit more fabric than conventional sewing. Very innovative, great for beginners as well. What a fun version of peepers! I hope this is what you are looking for.
    I made a court house steps for my son using the foldy stuff patterns. Really a great and easy pattern. Finished size was approx 110" x 110".

    Originally from CT and I too thought of little frogs. Now living in KS but still have the little frogs which I call peepers. They amuse my cats but not for quilting with or sitting on.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Curiosity killed the cat but for me it was a learning experience. I had to read all 5 pages of the posts and check out the websites to figure out what was going on.
