    Thank you. I am always amazed at the amount of information I get from this board. I thought I was getting a deal buying my padded envelopes @ the dollar store.

    **make sure when you order the envelopes, you order a 15 pack. As you can only order 1 bag of them at a time!

    Why use padded envelopes? And if my math is correct (my 1st time doing this) 20 packs X 50 = 1,000 sq. Still cutting..

    I'm in again, yipee! I haven't been on the computer for a while so thanks to everyone who sent baggies last time. I loved everything I got. I really should decide on something to make with them. I have just squared up my 84 blocks for a 4 patch stacked posey quilty and am trying to decide on a setting and whether to make 1 or 2 quilts. Decisions are not my specialty.

    Thanks for the site for envelopes since our PO doesn't stock them and wouldn't order them either.

    As I finished my cutting today, I wondered how many are also doing the Curious Quilter swap... It occurs to me that if folks do both, unless we cut these from different fabrics, folks might end up with multiple sets of the same thing. I'm waiting to hear before I mail mine out!

    I didn't get any of the board members in the Curious Quilter swap. . I got Dottie who wasn't a member until I told her what fun we were having, and she would fit in.. I think I might have enough different squares to swap for a while. I have two people that are sending me scraps.. Will share them..

    I am for 30 sets sent PM to Mariposa. My husband thinks I am nuts, said "Who trades little tiny slips of fabric all over the place, why don't you just trade big pieces"... he doesn't get it sometimes.

    I'm happy to report that all my Curious squares are out.. I'm waiting for my newbie names.. I volunteered for five.. I still have a few more bags to make on this one, and will send them out..
    Havplenty.. I didn't associate your names.. Sorry..
    SheriR... Nobody questions my sanity and why I'm cutting these silly little squares.. I should be gettting some squares from my friend's mother in NE MO....
    Actually, I'm not sure I'm even cutting them right. I know nobody has complained, but I'm not sure I'm doing them very efficiently.. I have been using a scissor, and a stack of fabric(about five fold), and cut around a template.. Is there an easier way, or more accurate..

    Oh my goodness Barri. If I cut all these tiny squares with scissors I'd go bonkers. I cut into strips than cut the strips to squares. And every day I think I need to get an Accuquilt!

    Sheri... I was thinking the same thing, but I panic about the accuracy.. I won't get the accuquilt.. I thought for a very short time, and it's too limited.. i have to remember to look at my cutting board, and try it.. Do you use a templete?
