    I have cut some and did not cut it right, so I made a different one than what I started with. Even if you have to make stripes or pieced blocks, it still comes out ok.

    I mailed all of mine today. For those of you that have not mailed yet, put your F8 in a long envelope to make it flatter. I did not know this. Each one of mine cost $.90 or more. I sent a block back to goldendog 55. I received f8s today from: scrapquilt, Cyndi H, ljdugas, Dove 911, and sustraley. Nice assortments of fabric.

    Hi All,

    If you have MS Word 2007, just use the Avery option on top, that wizard brings it in much easier!

    Wow..it feels like Christmas! Got fabric from Abbys Mom, Abonda, Cyndi H, Goldendog55, ljdugas31, scrapquilt, and sustraley today. Finished the block for dove 911 so put it in with my F8 and ALL my fabric will be in the mail tomorrow! Ive noticed that 80% of my F8s come with 45 cents on them. Mine just feel too heavy so just to be safe Im putting 65 cents on them. hope its enough! I know what Im doing Saturday!!

    This is one last plea for help. April you said you had the version that was newer and would send it to anyone who asked...I am asking..either that or send me a new excel list ...I understand if you are too busy..I have a bad case of divriticulitis and have gotten behind on customer quilts so this would help me emensly...if not I totally understand but wont be able to get them all addressed and sent until next Monday if that is the case. Last boom they were out the day after the list came out because of the pre printed labels..So I am just hoping...
    I really hate asking since you are so busy with everything...

    Just to let everyone know when sending squishes (especially to me) if it gets caught in a machine along the way, more postage is needed. I find that if you fold the material the fit the envelope you have a better chance of it arriving fine. The machines around me must love to eat the envelopes-I have had to pay postage due on a few envelopes that have "tread" marks on them-the envelopes were taller than the 1/4" permitted by the 45 or 65 stamp. The clerk at my post office told me that the 45 stamp was for paper correspondence, nothing else-and they are pretty strict. I found a larger envelope, business sizes (for the F8ths) or 4 X 6 (for the finished blocks-those seams can get thick!)work well and I've been able to send them off for regular postage. Flatter is better

    Yea, I don't understand why each post office is different. I took my envelopes to my local post office. Of the two employees there at the time, I pretty much got two different answers. One said "I don't know" and the other one said they were fine. So I always put on an extra 20 cent stamp so the envelopes don't go throught the machines. If anyone had to pay extra, please let me know.

    I went to the post office and sent everything for 45-the problem is on my end, there are machines for mail coming my way eat the envelopes that have too thick area-today's mail came through fine, it's just picky machines and clerks. A side note: the extra 20 cents for hand cancelling only works in the initial post office otherwise it still goes through the machines. Most envelopes have come through find, it's the extra thick ones that gum-up the works that extra postage is needed for.

    Received 2 today just fine

    I received F8's today from:
    CharlotteMarie
    Mosher92
    sustraley

    Tomorrow I'm sending some finished blocks back to their homes. I'll post tomorrow to let you know which ones will be mailed out.

    Also, let me know if I owe anyone any postage. My postal worker said 45 cents was fine, but if you owe, PM me.
