    Vacation sounds so good. I have to wait until May. My other half will be taking watercolor class at Reno, and I get to spend 3 days at the hotel quilting. Does that consider a mini retreat? This will be the first time I try to quilt while traveling. Hopfully I will not forget to bring the sewing machine. Not sure what I be making, I have some hand quilting to finish, maybe I will try the chiclets.

    Just finished the top for the 60 degree braid - forgot to turn on the light in sewing room so colors appear muddy. This is for a fundraiser. The one I am hand piecing will be a bit larger, per haps with grey sdashing rather than black. Still trying to decide how to FMQ it though.

    Its a fun quilt. When i was cutting the strips for the swap, I just cut one more for the braid and used the template to cut the pieces. I think I got 6 or 7 per strip. you need 250 pieces for a 5 panel quilt that ends up about 50 x 56".

    Today I received 2 more packages of candy...from Nurse Bonnie and quiltingdragon who is almost a neighbor! Thank you very much ladies.

    JNCT14 - before I straighten the fabric I have laying around from cutting. I'm going to use your template and cut for a braid. Thank you for telling how many pieces are needed that will really help.

    I've been teaching the girls at church to make them, and one of them got in with mine... if one of you four March/early April girls gets one that looks like it was made by a preteen, it was I just donated the money to the youth fund and told her it sold.

    pictures !!

    First let me thank barbarakibler23 for sending me my prize... love them !!!! That is the first picture- the 2nd picture should be the chiclet quilt I am making with my squares.
    Then it should be my home made envelopes. I try to use JCPenney adds that come in the paper as I think there paper is a little heavier.

    Yes...I did sign up for the CQ swap... 1.5" and 2.5". You must send 100 per set and you mail out to each person whose email you're given. I've had great luck with it. Let's see if I can get the link to post.

    http://thecuriousquilter.wordpress.c...until-3252013/

    She calls them Charms. I call them Candy. Others call them Stamps. Whatever you call them, we end up with FUN. Carrot's quilt above attests to that.

    And I have to add. I'm super excited to get that Braid templet!!....When was my birthday anyway...

    For the Anniversary of my 29th Birthday my children sent me on a 2 week trip to Ireland. Just got back and am getting things done. What a great gift all of you have given me. I love scrap quilting and now I cannot decide what pattern to use for all of the great candy that I have. Along with the fabric candy I also received several great other gifts. Thank all of you. I will be paying it forward when it comes your turn to be the receiver.
    Love to all.
    Jarenie

    I have PMed each of you for your great gifts. Thank each and every one of you for the squares. I have started 3 differen quilts form the squares and will post picutures. I received a few Batik squares and have already make them into a wallhanging.
