    I've been working on bookmarks to take to retreat the first of May. These are made with my cut down methods

    Though not quilty I thought you'd like to see what I quick did with scraps today. My 5 yo GD left her holey jeans here, so Gram decided to fix them up a bit. To sew them down first slipped the narrow leg over my free arm and then used my FMQ foot and "cat scratched" around the edges 2x to secure the patches in place. I hope she likes them! She's the 3rd little girl in the family so this hand-me-down is now a little more personal.

    Ahhhh so cute!! I love them!

    Since I am not selling to Yoder's anymore I am trying to get more into brighter colors. I'll always still do my favorite country colors but I need to appeal to more people's taste than just mine.

    I think there are alot of us who would rather use the country colors, but that's not what's hitting the markets is it? Thanks goodness for stash!

    I like your bookmarks Rhonda. I make them too although with more folks not reading paper books, me included, ..seems like they are becoming a collector item.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Well you can use them to mark your place in a quilt magazine too! Or if you carry a Bible you can use them in that also.

    Rhonda, how are you making the bookmarks? When I have made them in the past, I used card stock paper and put fabric that had wonder under on it. I have some little half squares and these would be a wonderful project to give as gifts to the 3 ladies from the library that I play bingo with.

    Snowing here in ND again. On Saturday I almost raked my lawn because there wasn't any snow left, but worked on taxes instead. Winter is still with us.

    You can do them any way you like. but I use my shortcut methods as in my Boston Blocks or Star point blocks etc.

    Here is one of my tutorials on making a bookmark my way. - http://www.quiltingboard.com/links-r...al-t84639.html

    Lynn, these are great. I especially like the second over the first as the white bordered diamond draws the eye in, rather than the 4P diamond on the first--IMHO. And a fun funky small quilt.

    I worked on more bookmarks - and some other things. Haven't really done much this last few days tho

    The yellow is a mini tablerunner or a wall hanging how ever you want to use it. It's 9" by 17" but isn't backed or quilted yet.

    The bookmarks are self explanatory. they are 2" x 7"

    The squares are 2 1/2" and they can be coasters or mini quilts.

    The one with the border is a coin purse. It's 3" square

    Hi everyone. I just joined this eve. I am wondering about the scrapboard exchange. What will measurments be and what kind of projects for the scrappy fabrics. I'm a fairly new quilter so have lots to learn. What is the time limit for the projects? Thank you so much.

    Hi marilyn I just host a swap when I have anyone interested. it can be anything you want to swap. Some like to make an item like a mugrug or they swap scraps. It's pretty open to suggestion. The only limit I put on it is I need at least 4 people wanting to swap.

    Otherwise this is a place to share your scrappy projects and or share ideas for scrappys. We love pictures and love new ideas. So feel free to share anything you like on here that is scrappy!

    I'll post a swap list and if we get enough people at least 4 to participate then you will get a partner and you will share and exchange info with your partner. Deadline is usually 2 weeks for these small swaps. All posts will be here on this thread.

    Item Swap!!!!

    Anyone up for another swap?

    You can make any item you like as long as it is small. --- mugrug/ small purse / small table topper (no more than 12") / scissors holder/ pincushion any other item you can think of that is small.

    You can talk to your partner and make sure what you make will be something your partner can use.
    All info is between you and your partner. You will exchange addresses and send to each other not to me!
