    buslady, I have done up a very good tutorial for using the little twister, with lots of photos. If you want I can send it to you. I just love the twister tools and have made so many quilts with both the large and small ones.

    Buslady I am sure I will like it. I have done the pattern before but the Anita Grossman Solomon way from Rotary Cutting Revolution. It is a now waste pattern but I also found it a bit challenging to put together. They were about 6 inch blocks and I think it would be hard to do them much smaller with the way she does the pattern. Worth it though as it looks so nice. I can't wait to see what you made me and I am sure I will like it.

    Mine's done!!! And will be going out tomorrow. Did something different with a bit more than just a bit of green and hope it arrives in good condition. It's kind of puffy in places. Hoping bubble wrap will save it. Curious??

    Krystyna -- only kidding. Each shines in its own light.

    Look at this! Isn't it the cutest quilt you have ever seen? Not only that, Needlegranny included candy and fabric. I am totally blown away. Thank you so much. I sort of think I am in over my head but will likely try again. Thanks again, Barbara. I wish you lived next door! I could learn a lot from you for sure!

Laid it out on the floor, said POOP!! sewed it back together, now am embellishing. I won't use that tool again, I assure you that! LOL I am very happy with the way it is turning out. Bet you never thought that was going to be my next sentance, did you!! Gonna be next weekend before I get it in the mail, I am sure. Out of town yesterday and most of today. Catching up at work this afternoon. Time change is Kicking my a**! It don't make any sense, it is only an hour!! For goodness sake!! Loving all the stuff coming in, can't wait to see more. I have a teaser, but no time to post. Maybe tomorrow.
    I totally agree...this time change has knocked me for a loop for sure. I cannot seem to shake it either. It is just an hour but it is killing me. I walk every morning for 5+ miles with friends..we meet at 7am..it is DARK and I hate it! I have to get up at 5:30 so I can work my puzzle and have coffee before I strike out...it is killing me!

    Difergie...I really do love that quilt. Really original and artistic!

    The quilt with the Granny Smith apple was very creative. I am not at all artistic. I'm very traditional, but wish I had a little more talent in that area. Needle granny very nice job.

    Went to the mailbox today and my DQ had arrived from Krystyna! I get into the house, just a rippin' and tearin' at the package, my husband starts laughing and says I look like a child at Christmas! Krystyna, you captured country in a very insightful way. I absolutely love your pattern and the colors! Your quilting is amazing and I will treasure this DQ and display it proudly! Thank you so much!
