    Anyone that wants to make something from their FQ's this month, check out Quiltpatternsfromseattle.com. She has a Mystery project on the 27th of Jan. It uses scraps or yardage and would be perfect for the FQ's. It is a small project. I am not affiliated with that in any way. I just received an email letting me know about it.

    I gotta' get on the internet and learn how to fold!! Then it's just doing it. Sustraley I got the e-mail too. Looked at her past mystery's and some are very nice. Small size if you want or make it 4 times and have a good size quilt. Thought they all looked pretty straight forward to do and not too time consuming.

    Teresa..........I just tried it again & it works just fine for me. Try to type in the name again carefully & it should come right up. When I do it, it comes up as the first listing. Good Luck & keep me posted.

    Thank you Lisa for fabulous fabrics! They were perfect pinks for my stash. You are a wonderfully speedy swap partner!
    I also thank Jvan228 for inspiring me to begin making a block from each month's swaps ....

    Now to get busy making blocks from previous swaps. I'm thinking I will combine these blocks within an I Spy quilt.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I confess---I stole the folding idea from someone else on this board. Glad you like them though. Yes that quiltpatternsfromseattle.com is awesome.

    I saw the folded fat quarters from Lstew2212 or Ivan 228 or MaryMo, who ever sent that last picture of folded FQ's. I'm confused who it was that sent it? Was that also on the same site that the one before it was, the Seattle one? Or where is the pattern for that? Thank you so much. I think if I put mine together like those two I'd never use my FQ's. hahaha

    After relooking at my last post, I realize this is a block pattern made by jvan228. So sorry about how silly I was. Anyway, would you mind tell me what pattern that is or show how to make it, please. Again, please accept my apology.

    Gee, , ,(blush). . . I'm glad I could inspire someone. I do hope you will post your quilt when it is finished. I'll do the same. Something for everyone to look forward to.

    So whoever made the block in #110, (I'm so blonde it's pathetic), could you tell me where you got that pattern or tell me how you made it? You could also pm me. Whatever- I love that block and would certainly love to make one. Any help would be greatly apprecited.

    Blessings.

    Thank you all for your compliments on this block. It is a variation of 4-patch rail fence block, sometimes called Spirit of St. Louis. It's a strip block pattern that can be easily adjusted for any size quilt block. In this case I sewed three 2" strips of fabrics together, then cut the strips into identical lengths. Playing with the layout, I placed the darkest side of the strips in the pattern showed and sewed together. If you have other questions please feel free to PM me.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    FQ swap

    I got the most "awesomest" package today from Sulabug. Not only beautiful fabric from her but not FQ's, they're 1/2yd. cuts. What a terrific way to start the week. And she remembered to send me the recipe for Creme Brulee french toast. Most definately a breakfast dinner this week. I love these fabrics, thank you so much Sulabug, you were beyond generous!!Name:  DSCF1035.JPG

    I got a very nice surprise in the mail today from Sistahdebbra. Love that name, by the way. Beautiful FQ's and an extra surprise of Needle Nest. Thank you so very much. I will try to post a picture.

    Yeah, I got the picture posted. Bless my little heart.
