I have plans for that pull up/diaper money, I am going to save it and buy me a accuquilt. With $20 a week going in the jar I should be able to purchase in six weeks or so.
    Well I've learned fast that it's a very good thing I bought the bundle, and there's already some others I wish I had too. If I'd only bought the machine, it'd be collecting dust. You might consider the "Mix & Match Starter Set" to begin with, $369.99 on Amazon, free shipping. Downside is, it doesn't have the 2-1/2" strip cutter, so that's why I didn't buy it. I ended up getting the "Collect em All" set with 17 dies because it was the best set for the money & I'd have probably bought most of these dies anyway. I'll be buying my individual dies from http://diecutyourfabric.com/ though. Even they couldn't beat the package price I got, but the individual piece prices on both cutting mats and dies are the best I've found, and I've been looking at this thing a long time before I bought it. You go on this site, and it looks like it's full price, but when you go to the bottom and put in your payment method, it lobs off 30% the total & that's what you pay, plus shipping. A 10"x24" mat is $19.99 on accuquilt's site, and $18.48 on Amazon (make your order $25 & you can get it shipped free), but it's $13.99+shipping on that site. I learned about it from someone else who posted on the site that they buy from them, and several chimed in about how great their experiences with them have been.

    DM I signed up for amazon prime for $79 a year and I get free two day shipping. I BUY ALOT from Amazon, birthdays, Christmas, just because, etc.... That is how I am getting my machine on Monday, the shipping for everything I bought was going to be $50 plus.

    Brat I will cut you stuff and all those little triangles if you need me to, once I get it.

    Nope dont like it at all. I love it. That is super pretty and oh such a happy combination. I was first put off by all the colors in his fabrics and designs then they .. grew on me. Reminds me so much of gypsy fabric lol. My mother grew up in Europe and always talked about the gyspys coming to do harvest for them and help with the, sorry veggans, the slaughter of the animals. She described the bright colors and well I have a vivid imagination. Plus she gave me this little madame alexander doll from Poland of course her dress was black and pink and green and all sorts of little colorful flowers and well... hence the love of the colors in the Kaffe Fasset fabrics. So outside the box Your going to love that quilt girl. Your welcome to hate it when your done and send it on over to me!

    If you love bright fabrics, you would love what Carole Liebzeit does with bright fabrics. Went to her trunk show last night and wow! Knocks your socks off. Going to a class tomorrow she is teaching and hopefully will learn Arrowhead block. Attached is a pic of some of her quilts.

    i love kaffe fassett and amy butler, valori wells, tula pink, mabley, all the really fun and bright fabrics! been collecting kf fabrics for over a year and can't make myself use them for swaps. piggy of me, i know, but i just adore them all! and i love chevrons! i would gladly buy the whole chevron line from riley blake! not that i can make/design a quilt on par with kf, i periodically pull out the fabrics and play with them. as far as i'm concerned, they all go together!!

    Got a neat tropical table runner from QuiltingKrazy today. Included with it was a mouse pad with the center of my runner duplicated on the pad and a pad of pineapple post-its. Took a picture, will download it from the camera and post later. Thanks again QuiltingKrazy - I will really enjoy my tropical vacation when we sit at the table with the runner in the middle!

    no! no! no!

    Not rainbow brite.. think beach towel colors.. I always loved those striped bright colors on beach towels that is what it reminds me of! quiltingkrazy that is a nice quality worked runner. I am sure Vanogay can appreciate no only how pretty that is but the nice work you put out. I would use that for summer, for birthdays its of those timeless patterns I think.

    QUILT LECTURE 101:

    I hope everyone remembers to do their BEST work. Not everyone is great not everyone is a less than great but all in all when you send send the best you can do. Something you would put out on your table. If it needs tweeking before you finish it tweek it. You will be proud of what you do and proud to display what you receive back brought to you by lectures of the week on the quilting board.

    Gosh, I'll keep my thoughts to myself then. Personally, I loved Rainbow Bright as a kid...well I wasn't a kid I guess since I was about 11-12 when it came out. I have no idea why I liked it though except she was always so happy! Oh, I know what it was, it was her horse Starlight! Who doesn't love a horse with a rainbow tail & mane?

    Do my best? You spoil all my fun. I thought I'd just throw something together.

    Oh, that reminds me (don't ask why).....anyone ever make confetti quilts? I was looking at Accuquilt dies and apparently they make a confetti die. That made me think of all the confetti size pieces I have leftover when I use my Accuquilt cutter. What does everyone do with them? The answer to this could completely change my quilting life! Noriko Endo uses these little pieces to make nature quilts on her LAQ machine. OMG are they beautiful too! If you haven't seen them, check them out. So my point here is, if anyone has done this or wants to try it, let's talk & maybe we could try some mug rugs or something to swap out & see what works!

    Ooh, fruity drinks makes me think of Garth Brooks...

    "Bring me two pina coladas, I gotta have one for each hand! Let's set said with Captain Morgan, and we will never leave dry land. Hey! Troubles, I forgot em, buried them in the sand!"

    Ooh, how about some Kenny Chesney? He's cute too!

    "No shirt, no shoes, no problems. Blues, what blues? Hey I forgot em! The sun and the sand and a drink in my hand with no bottom!"

    Oh I like that song also the Jimmy Buffett version isnt too bad either on the sands, relaxation and a cool drink.. lol.. omg dont ever go to a Jimmy Buffett concert unprepared. All I can say. Those people in the seats next to you? they go there at 8 am when the parking lot opened and well got into the mood early early early!

    I was a generation too old for you rainbow brite people. My daughter who is now 21 loved those colored ponies those were her thing they were already vintage when she got to them .. purple with hearts on their hind quarters? lol stuff like that. me no rainbow brights. barbie wasin but not in my house. We had madam alexander dolls to play with. never real dolls.. and no I am not into them now. I adore teddy bears those specialty ones hand made or best yet vintage STEIFF omg love those. I digress sorry I am not a rainbow bright person but do recall the 70's beach towels lol and so speak your peace we all grew up differently girly.

    oh I am more " I got my toes in the sand, my ..s in a chair, my beer in my hand life is good today.. life is good today." there you go my secret is out. I like just like peaceful and relaxed. I can even skip that beer in my hand if it comes with an iced water in my hand....

    Hey Linda! Me...you....that beach in my profile pic. Whatcha say? Gotta go early though. They only let a certain number of people in at a time & it gets crowded! Went there in 2007. Got there early early. We left by 10am so some others could come in & we could drive up to the north shore. That was a NICE trip!

    just don't bump my arm and we are good to go!

    our feelings are hurt!! kenny and i were going to invite y'all to come to the caribbean with us and y'all are goin' ahead and partying without us? well, lucky for me i know how to keep a tennesseeian man happy, 'cause everything is hotter, when the sun goes down!!
