    Great news Barb, I knew that's a big relief off your mind. We finally paid ours off last Nov and now we have to save for Old Age.

    I love the games, please keep them coming. I missed the last one because I am finishing a show for the theater this weekend. I am checking the board every other day right now. I missed the contest. I will surely catch the next one.
    Happy Sewing, Lisa E.

    Good morning, everyone... Here are a couple of pictures of the 16patch blocks I put together last night. Some of you may recognize your fabrics!

    Thank you sewbiz girl for the pattern ideas. I have a pattern that I like that uses these little squares but I have now made three of the same pattern and am ready for new fresh ideas!

    Sewbizgirl., great idea and I like the sashing fabric you will using too. I love these candies, when I'm watching tv I am either making 1 inch hex's with them, or I"m sewing the same color family of hex's together. One day it will be a quilt, but I think at that size I might need like 2000 or so. It's just something to do with my fingers while I sit.

    YOu ladies who hand piece those tiny hexes just amaze me. I used to hand bead wedding gowns, and so I'm quite burned out on hand sewing! I've got to use my sewing machine. For "sitting" time I knit or crochet.

    Havplenty, thanks for the Traffic Jam pattern for candy! I'll add that to my collection.

    The Granny Square quilt is made from 2.5" candies. Here is a tutorial for the block. There are some great pics of GS quilts on Google.

    Hello all,

    My apologies to mrs. sherbet, alice and sewbizgirl! We had an out of town emergency last week and I didn't get your candies in the mail. They are going in the mail today. Again, Im super sorry for this... you should have your candies by the end of the week. It will be a "belated" happy birthday from me.

    No problem... an emergency is an emergency. We will all get to be Birthday Princesses a little longer, that's all!

    Thanks for the mortgage messages...I appreciate the kind words and thoughts.

    looks like the quilt sharing ideas are a hit.....keep up the sharing I love it. Just can't sew fast enough!

    My Wednesday night quilt group is working on projects ever month this year. We have been getting together for over 4 years and I am one of the newest quilters. so I suggested why doesn't everyone pick a project and be in charge of it once a month! Oh my...becareful what you wish for! I will post the two projects that we have finished so far. Mine was the first one since it was my bright idea to do this. I just wanted to get out of my comfort zone and learn something new!

    The Christmas presents is the project that I lead....(i did not know how to do paper piecing but my mom did so we did this together)

    The second is a purse that we made....lined and everything! has 8 pockets. I am using it as a sewing bag.

    My pleasure, Barbara. I'm trying to share, while others are waiting for theirs!

    I have received all but 6 of my squishies, so I do have a LOT of squares to work with! I'm still working on the Arkansas Crossroads. It's fun to put together.

    I agree, that first quilt I linked to would be great done in postage stamp squares. Be sure you show us when you get it done.
