    today was our grand reopening of the JoAnn's store here in my town they updated the inside making it more like a scalled down super store but the best part is they had a sale so I of course had to go to it....I bought a June Tailor "get squared 8 " ruler", fiscar pinking shears, lots of fat quarters,thread and a thread holder....I was so excited I can't wait to use the ruler have any of you watched the demo on quilters TV?...after I seen it I just had to have the thing...anyway I had a very successful shopping day now maybe I will get motivated to get back to my quilting....lol

    I just love that blue. I've been buying those "quarter flats" everytime they go on sale (I'm planning a fat quarter quilt). :D I wonder if I have that one, can you tell me what it's called? :D PLEASE PLEASE PLASE WITH SUGAR ON TOP! Thank you!

    well they came out blue but it is really a pretty purple I don;t know why it kept showing up as blue...anyway heres the ruler in each corner are cut outs so your rotary cutter goes in to make the inside cut square...it is really neat...

    :lol: We believe you Melissa really :wink: . The server appears to have imported the pic from the other thread Granny Cat started today over in the Pictures section The pic probably had the same file name, 008JPG. The same thing happened to me when I was posting the last Beginners tutorial. I had three pics all called finished block, what a mess that created :lol: There were finished pics posted that had no relation to the preceding instructions, at one point I had 3 copies of the one pic posted. Just had to rename the files, repost and remove previous pics. I will try to remember to name things differently in the future so as not to confuse the poor ole puter :lol:
