    I saw your quilt, that is soo cool. My sister was telling me about a Kaleidoscope quilt she is working on. I didn't know what she was talking about. I like the colors. Thanks.

    Thanks! I would love to hang it out on the porch for July 4th, but it would get too much sun, and I'm afraid it would fade.

    I'm sending them to Gotthebug, as a birthday gift.
    I didn't want to give any one particular person the advantage over anyone else. I do like the ideas you all posted, and I know there are a bunch of scrap users on this board....

    I wish you all a happy 4th of July weekend!
    And a happy 4th to you also. That was very generous of you to give them away.

    I turned 65 today! I can't believe I have made it this many years. I told a friend of mine the other day that I had, had everything I have operated on except left arm, and kidneys. But I am thankful that I can still get around and I plan on living another 65 years!!!! Wait a minute that's a long time isn't it. Maybe I better say another 25 years instead.

    Well, happy birthday to you all.
    The 4th? Our church had a celebration that recognized our country. Some brought tears to many eyes.

    i would never work with anything that small myself, so if i didn't want to waste them i would donate them to a kindergarten class. most schools can't afford much in the way of art supplies these days.

    Would you please explain what a "leader & ender" quilt is? This sounds like something I would do. Thanks

    What would you do with them?

    In case the colors don't show very well, they are red, white and blues. There is one off-white print.
    Send them to me. The colors are beautiful.

    I hope I'm not jumping in here out of line but to my understanding a "leader" is a sm. scrap of fabric you put down ahead the needle to start stitching on ahead of your main fabric. This avoids the first cpl. of stitches from pushing the edge of your fabric down into the hole. I've never used an ender but I think it's a sm. scrap of fabric at the end of your stitching that you just run onto at the end of your seam.
    If this is wrong, I hope somebody can correct me.

    Save them for down the road to do a crazy patch quilt. They would lay nicely edge over edge and stitch once leaving rough edges on both sides. When all the fabric pieces have been added and you expand the layout as you go until you reach your desired size, there will not be any one piece the same and it looks nice from either side, wrong side or not. I did this years ago and made a quick yet fashionable table cloth for the picnic basket. All my utensils are red/white/blue so even the colors worked well. Or you could donate the pieces to a local quilt club. There are many that would love the fabric.

    one of the best sites for scrap users. If you get to the home page, on the left hand side is a menu, and one of the links is to the leader and header formula/technique. Bonnie Hunter's site is worth bookmarking and spending days reading ... she is very generous with her scrap organizing tips, quilt patterns for scrap quilters, and very easy to read. Her books are worth EVERY dime.
