    So you want to make a 48" square quilt using 16 blocks that each measure 12"? Or you want to use 9" blocks? I put the yardage directions for 9" blocks to make a quilt 54 x 72". If you're wanting one roughly half that size then the yardage would be roughly half.

    Rail Fence/Roman Stripe. You could also do Chinese Coins or Bricks. Fabric is never wasted--just re-purposed.

    You can place them in any order you like or mix in some more fabrics. If you've got a bunch all cut 3.5 x 6", I would try lining them all up long edges and then use a solid fabric between like Chinese Coins. I'll see if I can find a link to it. http://www.quilterscache.com/C/ChineseCoinsBlock.html

    I don't particularly like her color choices but this gives a good idea.

    You can also make Spiderweb blocks out of them. http://www.quilterscache.com/E/EasySpiderWebBlock.html

    I like the Chinese coins I have 50 each 2 different blues and 2 greens need to add a solid color? When you get tired of me just don't ansewer me I will most certainly understand my chemo brain is slow to understand sorry but I thank you very much for your help. I was surprised by my DH he stopes at a yard sale and brought me a singer sewing machine with 20 different stitches. Well so much for all that. Thank you I will let you know how it turns out would post a pic but haven't figured it out.

    It doesn't have to be a solid. A tiny print or something that "reads" as solid to separate the stacked coins into panels.

    Another idea is stacked bricks. You would sew your 3.5 x 6" pieces end to end in horizontal rows and off set each row so it looks like a brick wall.

    I got a newsletter from epatterns this morning that has a design in it that might work for you, also. It's a cross between rail fence & garden path.

    http://www.e-patternscentral.com/det...ng+Garden+Path

    If the link doesn't work, to to http://www.e-patternscentral.com and search for Spring Garden Path. I don't see paying $3.49 for the pattern, though when it's so simple to figure out but it might help clear your chemo fog.

    Nope, not a pain. I enjoy designing and making patterns as much if not more than the actual piecing & quilting.

    I'm from the Jefferson City area myself. Met hubby (2nd) on-line and he's from Kirkwood. He lived with me for a while back home but the money for computer programmers is better up here so we moved up here. Been here for 10 years+. This part of Jefferson County isn't much different than where I'm from but much easier access to the zoo, Six Flags, The Arch, and lots more fabric shops! So I still get my country living but am only 45 minutes from all the attractions of the big city.
