    You can use mine I sent you a black F8th and asked for bright colors but any colors would work.

    That is true but I already cut yours up and it is waiting to be sewn. Made a different star with it. It would have been just right for the background. Makes me anxious to get these done this weekend. I love this star and pinwheel look that I am going to have to dig from the ones that aren't cut up and sew it together tonight or in am before work so I can post a photo to show all of you. i get to go stash shopping. Alright!

    The star and pinwheel has 36 pieces for one block. Am I being over zealous?

    Very nice blocks everyone, nothing to report yet just checking on what everyone is getting. Haven't got areinn fabric yet, maybe it will be here tomorrow then I can get it back to her. Nexxus, you'll get them done. Lots of us do 2 and extra's, I had 57 blocks to make. But....I don't have kids still at home either like you do. That does make a tad of difference.

    Are you talking about the one on the Quilters Cache? I like theirs but the one I saw that I really liked is a little different.
    there are 4 fabrics on the one in the QC but the one I have done in the past there are only 3 fabrics. Funny thing I noticed about the one on QC there is no instructions just a template for paper piecing. The one I did was not paper pieced. If you want I can see if I can find it in my files?

    WELL good evening everyone! or good morning? Moonrise I LOVE your block with the pretty pink flowers, that is a nice twist on a well loved block.. very pretty how it came out. Your fabric was so fun to work with. its a make you happy fabric

    The nesting dolls also, with the metallic in the green matching the dress how great is that?
    everyone is working hard and I sure hope all of you have received my block. once again let me know if you havent yet by PM and I will search my photo base for it ..not everything made the album here and well not sure it all will but I tried. It is however all onmy computer somewhere

    Quiltermomma, not overly ambitious but could be IF you did that for every fabric you have 50 plus blocks times 36 pieces.. you might be sick of little pieces by then and only want to do panel quilts for a while..so think twice

    Morning everyone and its a lovely frosty one at that 35 and going to get colder today. I think a little fire would be lovely and what an excellant idea.

    I was wondering here for those who are completed and with a tiny bit more time if I could ask.. I am making ornaments, room decoration pieces extra for a lower income Senior home. For the rooms of those who cant leave their beds for the dining room also for those who can. Little things, also I just thought maybe eye glass cases just sleeves really in bright colors? lose fiting so easy in easy out but bright colors so they can be easily found? if you have a spare bit of time would you like to make a few to donate also? So many have no one and no cards (hey you could send cards to be handed out that would be great too just sign a nice wish and i could gift those to them also).. just any small item so each can have something. I have posted in requests but was thinking maybe just maybe a few of you might have time.. let me know in PM hoping the end of the first week of November to have gathered everything I can up. so what I am missing I can find maybe at the thrift store or walmart if need be. thanks guys I appreciate your time on this now I will shush up. (lol for a while)
