    ssnare - I'm just outside of Wichita, so not terribly far from you in the grand scheme of things!

    What I am thinking for mine.....and I wish I knew what it was called...I've heard it called "stack & slash" I think. I have no idea how to explain it, but this is one that I made with the technique. I like it because it's really easy and it works up quickly and looks random. I can find the instructions to send along - I just have to dig them out of the pile.

    AmyB is that paper piecing? OMG, I have never done pp. And it looks like you have curves in it. I do not know if I can do those. Yikes, it is beautiful though. I will definitely need instructions. I sure hope I can do something you will like.

    Ok ladies, I got the address list and emails today and sent an email to each one of you and they all came back undeliverable. Please pm me with all of your information and I will try again. Thanks, Sherry

    No, there are no curves at all - and not paper pieced either. Honestly, I have never done paper piecing!

    Let me see if I can explain it. You take your squares of fabric that you start with and stack them all up nice and neat. Then you take a piece of paper or cardboard or something and draw a shape on it. For 5 squares, I believe it would be a 4-sided shape, but not a square. You put that in the middle, then use the ruler and rotary cutter and cut the entire way across the pile of squares following one side, then you put that pile of fabric aside. Then you cut along the next side of the shape, and put that pile aside. You keep going until you just have the middle pile that is the center. Then you take one piece of fabric off of the top of that pile and put it on the bottom. Then you take 2 pieces off of the top of the next pile and put those on the bottom of their pile. Then the same thing with the next pile, only you move 3 to the bottom, and so on. So then if you look at all of the piles together, you still have a stack of 5 squares, but each piece of the square is a different color, and you just sew the squares back together again.

    Like I said, it's really hard to explain - but it's super simple to do. The instructions have pictures.

    Oh, and I did get the email - it came through for me just fine.

    ctipton. Start picking out your fabric. Plan what you want to do for your row. What I do, after I have my ideas is look for fabric (of course, we all know how much fun that is) LOL. Then I sketch out my plan on 12 1/2" square graft paper that I get from Joanns in the quilting section. Then if I am making 12 1/2" blocks, that takes 5 blocks this size to make a 60 1/2" row, I plan what I want to do in each block. Then I start making my blocks. Sometimes I have a center block that may be different and 2 side blocks that are the same and 2 other side blocks that are the same. But sometimes, each block is different or spells out something. This is where your imagination takes you. Then start sewing each block. When you have each block sewn together, sew the blocks into a row. Show pictures as you progress. We love pictures of everyone's progress and it is nice for you to keep a record.
    Then, when you are done with your row and it is ready to be mailed to the next person, notify that person to see if they are ready for your row. Then, when you mail yours and someone mails theirs to you, you look at their row and let it talk to you. Then you decide what you want to add to their row and start the process over again. Eventually, you get your top back and you get to see the progress as it moves around and as it grows. That's what it is all about!

    Ctipton , this is on sale today on this board. It is fabric of cats. http://www.quiltingboard.com/items-s...e-t201229.html

    Here is a picture of the cat fabric I am trying to buy. Scroll down to the cat fabric. The lady has not responded back to me. http://www.quiltinghaven.com/index.php?topic=7464.0

    Here are some pictures I have saved on my computer for cat appliques. I click on the pictures. Click save as, name them. Then I print off different sizes and use that as a template. I buy clear plastic sheets from Joann's in the quilting section and make templates with permanent markers and cut them out. Label the front. Then I draw my pattern on the back of light heat n bond and iron onto back of my fabric. I usually cut the fabric a little larger than the pattern. When the heat n bond is set on the fabric, I cut both out. Iron this to the background and then applique the pattern to background. You must stitch the applique, because the ironed or pressed applique will come off. I hope this helps. Let me know if you like the above fabrics.

    I am still leaning towards something totally scrappy and random for mine. Everyone has scraps that they want to get used up, right? Or is that just me? LOL

    LOL that's kind of what I figured.

    I'm working on a tshirt quilt right now for a fundraiser - doing it for a friend. She *finally* got me the rest of the shirts the other night, and now I have to get it completely assembled, quilted, and bound in about....oh, 2 weeks. I'm not in panic mode - yet. But I'm getting close.

    That is beautiful Difergi. It looks like fall colors and other things that remind us of fall. Talking about fall, here in Kansas we had a very long drought. Then when we got rain from remnants of the hurricane, magnolia trees and white flowering trees that usually bloom in the spring started blooming. So we are having pink trees, white trees blooming while other trees are starting to show their fall colors of reds, yellows. Interesting fall season right now.
