    :-D :-D :-D I got this far tonight and It will be awhile before I quilt it. I have to get the right batting for it, but I have plenty of fq's that I can make a couple more out of. It volcanoed on me, but I got it fixed to where it will quilt out. This one is in the colors that my sister Sharon likes Every one have a great day, Huggies, Fay

    I had a lot of trouble with this one. I ran out of spray starch or magic sizing or what ever it is called and if I had some, I tihnk the fabric would have behaved a lot better. As far as the volcano thing. I had it sewn together and had to frog stitch it and put it back together. I think the reason it volcanoeed was because some of the bias got a tad stretched so you have to be very careful on that. So that's where to starch comes in. It'll help the fabric behave it self. So it'll be a week or so before I get it quilted and I'll post it again once it is done. I hope that volcano quilts out as I fought the dern thing so no matter how many lone stars one makes, it can volcano and then you have to fix it. Grrr..... It happens to the best of us. Have a great evening, Huggies, Fay...........I made it wiht some of that fabric I got at the Goodwill the other day and there is plenty left to make more.
