    I get by with a little bit of help from my friends...

    I want to thank everyone who has sent me scraps or squares for my postage stamp quilt. When I first started this quilt I was going to call it "Insanity Defense" but I'm changing the name to the old Beatles song "I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends". I'm including some pictures of the squares that I have cut and the material I have yet to do. I have also decided on a pattern and I'm going to post that on the main because I need some feed back.

    Here is a list of the people I consider my friends - I've listed them by their board names or by their first name and last initial if I haven't figured out their board names: NanaL, Scakes, Diannia, Barbara S., auntpiggylpn, Quiltaddict, Sweatpea, carreen, seam-ripper-sue, Dina, faykilgore, Sally L., Suz, Dorothy M., Mary O., dconroy84, Margie M., Patricia S., gollytwo, Sharon C., JustMe, Lynn S., dakotamaid, Rae P.

    Loving this Board,

    Laura

    As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    That will be a lot of stitching. How long do you think it will take to finish? Peggy
    Happy quilting to all of my new friends on the quilting board http://pastimesquiltdesign.blogspot.com

    That is impressive. It looks so orderly when it is all cut up. Looking forward to seeing what you make with it.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.
