    Honchey...glad you received my envelope. The other day I went down into my quilting room (been awhile) and found your envelope already to be mailed...but I thought that I already did! Happy Belated Birthday.

    Hey I figured out the block for that star quilt using the French Braid. I made one in white muslin and marked each piece so you can see it. The finished block is 12.5" square. I will post a picture tomorrow (I forgot my phone at home today!). I am already cutting out the strips for 2 - one for my DD best friend's birthday and FOR ONCE, one for me!!!!

    Ok got the picture. So each block is 12.5", you need a 6.5" sqauare, 3 strips 2.5" x 6.5", 3 strips 2.5" x 8.5" and 2 HSTs. I had trouble with the HSTs - I cut a 6.5" square then cut on the diagonal.

    As you can see from the picture I came up a bit short. I am guessing that the square for the HST needs to be either 6 5/8" which should work exactly but be a pain to cut, or 6 3/4" then trimmed (I hate trmming). Any advice on that?

    Anyway, make 36 of the blocks and off you go.

    These are really well suited for fat quarters and jelly rolls. I am actually cutting strips WoF by 6.5" and 8.5" and cutting my strips into 2.5" segments. This should yield enough for 72 blocks or 2 quilt tops. I am using about 40 fabrics for all the strips so it will be very colorful.

    I did too. I want one in the worst way. So I finally said to myself that I will make the one for my DD best friend but only if I make myself one too.

    2 things guys - need advice on the size of the HST and I still REALLY NEED the blocks for the surprise quilt! I have 9 so far.......

    Spend last weekend at Tahoe. While DH takes his three days watercolor class. I have the hotel room for a quite quilt retreat. Mostly I went through all the birthday candies and the candies from one of Sheri's swap. This is my first project finished. It is a midi bag.

    Oh WOW ahwu, that is so pretty. At some point I need to try making a bag - never really did one before and could use it for toting my crochet around.

    I started the blocks for that star french braid quilt top. Boy is that one easy.

    I need to figure out a wall hanging for Rhonda's swap as well - I love wall hangings................

    Hi all, dropping in for a second. To our May baby - yours came back to me. I put the address on it, minus the zip code. I will put back in the mail in the morning and you should have it next week. I'm so sorry it will be a few days late.

    Hey ladies - many thanks for the blocks sent for the surprise quilt. I have pending from the following: mariposa, honchey, quilting dragon and mamaskeeto (mailed). This will give me 16 blocks which will be plenty. So if you have not sent yours, not to worry - I know that life gets in the way. I am going to start putting everything together next weekend. I can't wait to post a picture of the final!!!
