    Welcome mrsmck!

    Annaquilts.....lots of free patterns on the web for interesting things like pouches, bags, pot holders. Pot holders are a good way to use orphan blocks and most of us use them, so that's a good bet.

    In fact Anna, here is a tutorial on 9 patch blocks for pot holder, but you can use an orphan block as well or use your scraps to make a nine patch and follow along. I did these out of some drunkard path orphan blocks I had.

    Thank you Beth and Rhonda for the ideas. The pot holder sounds good out of scraps and will keep me in theme with the board. I like the scrappy theme. Most of my orphan blocks are 12 in. that seems a little big. OK ladies off to look at the ideas. Thanks!

    edit- Wow Rhonda! I did not realize you had that many tutes. Thanks!

    Welcome mrsmck. Hope you have fun here. I also love the quilt pattern you posted Rhonda.

    Annaquilts, the chickie is adorable! When I made mine, I used a fire red or gold fringelike crochet thread (can't remember the name) in a tiny bunch as the cock's comb and it's fun as well. Instead of making pin cushions, I stuffed them and put little hangers on them and turned them into ornaments for the grandkids in their favorite colors...scrappy of course...and it's a favorite ornament. I really love yours!

    Great idea on the comb rwquilts. Kind of like a hippy chickie. I also like the idea of an ornament.

    Thanks Lynnie good idea.
    Im not sure if you have these patterns but look what Ive found.

    You may have seen these gals floating around the internet on Pinterest, the Quilting Board, Sew We Quilt, with a few appearances over on Quiltscapes;
    http://www.rileyblakedesigns.com/cut...ring-chickens/


    Web-Goddess gives a nice clear set of free illustrated instructions for sewing up a set of funky chicken pincushions
    http://www.web-goddess.org/archive.php/postID/2529

    A traditional take on the same basic idea has the chicken made up of log cabin quilt squares. You can find a free pattern for the log cabin chicken pincushion at Quilting Works

    Big hugs

    Well Im exhausted. Been here awhile going through some links and saving heaps of stuff. It is raining here so I had nothing much better to do. lol.

    I have made a new folder on my PC with a few sub-fodders. Have folders for BOM, ROM, Runners, Rug mugs, Potholders and a few more. Inspiration is flowing and now I am behind with everything else in the house. lol I might even get to sew tomorrow.

    One thing I would like to share is a BOM from "Lecien". Have you all seen it? Just wonderful. Instead of applique Im going to embroider it...one day soon I hope. All the 12 months are ready to be downloaded. Here is the link.

    okay Lynnie I think we will start a new trend here for partners.

    when you sign up the first one signed up is a partner to number 2 signed up and number 3 is partner to number 4 and so on. then you will know who your partner is when you sign up. the only reason I like to wait is so I can get as many people to sign up before I draw partners. but if we do it this way then I won't need to wait and you will all know right away who your partner is.

    But if someone has to drop out then we have to do a fancy two step to make up the difference LOL

    PARTNERS ASSIGNED!!

    since the mailing date is coming up soon - like this next Monday! I will post the partners a bit early

    So if you have your pkg ready to go you can mail early if you like.
    I don't have everyone's address so contact your partner first for their address. if you can't get ahold of them then I will give you their address.
