    That's funny Tess, your dreaming of the DQ and I am in the middle of a nightmare with yours! lol I am on the second DQ for you, again the "girls" have told me, "Mom, that is not stripey". So, back to the drawing board. Can't seem to shake my country roots, you would think I could find a bit of fabric in my stash that has stripes! I have a better chance of seeing a pig fly.
    On to idea #3, needless to say Tess, probably won't be mailing at the beginning of the week, but I know I can get this right, I know I can, I know I can........
    If I can find what box my camera/computer thingy is in, I will post pics of my two humble beginnings.

    Found my photo/computer thingy,(that's a technical term). Here are my first two attempts, I thought I would build the star border with court house steps, but the girls called that cheating, lol

    Hi Alaska Alice, that was a great price, are you on JBER maybe you get a special rate, My daughter and her family live in
    Anchorage, Alaska on JBER base. when mailed her and my Grandkids Christmas package was $175.00, I thought I would fall over... next Christmas we are still sending the kids a couple of gifts to unwrap but we are also sending gift cards of good ole cash... that was just crazy...

    Nancy, still deciding on which of the series I'm working on is the one you'll get. Got side tracked for a couple of days making veils and hoping not to lose too many customers in my frantic catch up sewing! The Janome Memory Craft 6500 gifted to me by someone who I wish wouldn't insist on being anonymous is sewing like a dream. It took me a while to get used to it. I think I had sewing phobia for a while. Anyway, wow, I love love love it. I don't miss my Babylock at all.

    Today I made curtains for the bedroom from some fabric I found on sale in the Red Dot section of Joann a couple of weeks ago. Hubby is working the midnight shift tonight (which I hate) so I wanted to make quick curtains to block out light so he'd sleep before work. They were pieced with top and side borders because I didn't have enough of either fabric to make them. Zipped right through them with this wonderful machine!

    Thanks wandalou and krystyna. I need to see an example, anyone want to help a gal out? I am a rule follower (Leo is my sign, lol). Otherwise, it is off to the fabric store to buy stripes!

    Hey, Tulip, quilt "rules" are pretty loose. The one with the tiny squares has a stripe. It's the light color "stripe" going all around the center. If those are your rejects I'm pretty excited, cuz I love them both.

    Postage is crazy up here..but there are ways to get it done cheaper... The PO boxes that cost a set price for all you can get into them have worked.the flat rate helps.but I have resorted to sending money and letting them buy..not so much fun.. I drive by JBER at least once a week.. When You come to Ak maybe we could get together.

But her brother who is 2 years younger just went over to the dark side and likes Vegemite now. Poor Mally......my daughter and I are holding out for him to stay on the light side with us. You can join us seeing you said YUK.

    Alice, an Angel Quilt is when someone (also known as an Angel) steps in to send a quilt to someone who didn't receive one from their partner. And that can be from months ago! Sometimes life interferes with doll quilts but I always ask the person to let me know so I can get someone to step in. In my own case life interfered with getting my November doll quilt out due to Hurricane Sandy -- but I my partner was understanding and I have the pieces here to quilt for her. Although since it was a Thanksgiving theme she'll have to save it for some months before using it ... so she will get two from me.

    So, in short, an angel quilt is one that is sent by someone to another member who didn't receive one.
