Way to cool!
Shouldn't he be Saturday Night Live starring JT (John Travolta) :?: Too funny. I love his colors!

Hey Crafty3790, EQ is software that draws quilts and quilt blocks very easily and quickly, saving a quilter hours of work, and it allows you to color those quilts using images of actual fabrics so you can see what the real thing would look like. You can even photo your own fabrics and import them into EQ to see how they would look in certain blocks or borders of the quilt. It's really amazing software and lots of fun. You can check out their interesting website at http://www.electricquilt.com.

Mariposa... go over to the other side of the coop and don't look at this next stuff!

Yes, Mariposa has a HUGE job in front of her. And, I am pretty sure she can hardly wait to do the sorting. Some will send along little neat gifts like FQ, stationary, candy (I think she likes candy :shock:) , etc. as a thank you gift.

Note: it is not a requirement, just a nice way to say thank you to one Funky Hostess who will be having quite a job of sorting, repackaging, adding postage and all of the myriad of other stuff to consider in order to pull this whole swap and have Happy Hens in the end... I don't think there are any roosters in this swap, are there?????? :-D :-D :-D

OH, that makes so much more sense. I understand so much better. Thanks so much. Also, when we speak 3x3 that does NOT include the seam allowance correct?
thanks so much.

Congratulations Sandpat! That's a quilting milestone for sure, and now you have an amazing heirloom! Dear Jane is on my list of someday quilts to make, too.
