    Just pm'd for 30 sets. Hope my wrist make it through all this cutting. I really need to get my son n law to figure a way to have his vinyl cutter, cut my fabrics.

    I started cutting today. So far I have 11 sets done and I think I'm done for this evening. I need to dig some more in my stash but this will have to wait for another day.

    Anyone have a clue why I can't get my cutter back together after I took it apart to change the blade.. I finished cutting all my squares, and was going to cut extra's to send, but thought the blade wasn't as sharp as it could be, so I took it apart.. It does not want to go back together.. It is an Olfa with the quick release. You are supposed to slide the piece, and then slide it back. It's not staying tight when I moved it back.. Ughhhh

    Barri, that's happened to me. I didn't put it back together in the right order.

    Hello Ladies
    Last night I went to quilting with my mom and told her about our swap and what we are going to make with all these little squares. She said that at her morning group they were just talking about the same quilt. It is on the cover of American Patchwork & quilting december 2012 issue. and the directions are inside YIKES!

    Anyway my mom's friends were interested in making the quilt but said they would never have enough different fabrics. I know that some of them don't have internet access...would I be able to sign them up.......????

    These ladies are mostly in their 70's/80's and make beautiful quilts. I love to pass on the opportunity to them.
    Please let me know what you think.
    Barb
    and if you google : american patchwork & quilting december 2012 scroll down until it says it is going to take you to that page and then click you will see the magazine.....if anyone wants a copy of the directions I would be glad to print them off for you.

    More squishes today from Lisa wanna b quilter and Katfish.

    @Barb: swaps are open to members. Many of us have signed our buddies up as members so they can join the fun. I did this for my mom who rarely goes on board but I keep her up to date and get her signed up for swaps when she wants to join in.

    I stand corrected! 9 strips are needed to cut 153 2 1/2" squares.... meaning 22 1/2" of fabric is needed not 9"....

    All are cut, not to put them together in the sets of 5.........cut them with the accucutter in layers of fq's so need to put them together.

    A 13 in square gets me 5 sets of 5. So once I had that cut from the FQ it went very fast.

    Will be mailing out later this week. I have also made a set for me when I was cutting them.

    Hi Ladies - I found my copy of APQ with the pattern today. The Charming Addiction quilt in the magazine is 78 1/2 x 80 1/2 without borders, and uses 1,560 squares - 281 sets of 5, 31 sets of 4, and 31 singletons. There's also a pattern for a wallhanging/baby size that's 44x42, but I think it would be easy to adjust to any size. I think i'm going to try for a twin or large lap, and if I like it i'll try for a queen. I'm thinking about collecting strips in all shades of one color and trying a monochromatic one, too! I have 15 sets done and packaged, and part of the rest cut, but i'll have to go pull more stash fabric to cut!

    Cindy, thanks! Ok...with the possibility of sounding newbie. What do you mean by "17" drop, 14" drop and 12" drop" is this a border?

    From the looks of the diagrams, no it is not a border, dropping over the edge off he mattress is what it looks like. The only pictures in my directions are of the 2 1/2 inch squares no border shown.

    Drop is how far down the quilt falls from the edge of your mattress. So if you have one of those thick mattress sets or a pillow top mattress you would need a wider quilt IF you wanted the quilt to come to the bottom of the top mattress. Does this make sense?
