    Dear Sweet Butterflywing sent me my first squishy! And it isn't just FQ's, y'all, it's yardage. And in one of my favorite colors!

    Thank you BW, that was WAY too generous! But I'm as giddy as if I'd had champagne! You are too, too kind!! Hugs, hugs and more hugs!!!

    My first squishy!

    Aren't I though! :D :D And I just found the PERFECT pattern to use them in. It's Great Ball Of Fire, in the Sept/Oct issue of Quiltmaker.

    Yup, bw IS the best!

    I'm waiting until I have my October Doll Quilt done!!!

    And PP is not hard. Trust me, if I can do it, anyone can. And THIS pattern will not be mini, so I can easily remove the foundation papers! :P :P :roll: :roll: .

    If you can do (shudder) needle-turn (shudder, shudder, making a cross symbol), you can do paper piecing!!

    Heh Kathryn, there is a tute on the board, well two. The first one by Jette is a little difficult for a first attempt, but look at the one by Yvonne, now thats a great one to start with. You will love it when you get the hang of it believe me.

    Well I have a couple of lonely evenings as Hans is away so I might give it a try! :D Been working on the Baltimore, nearly done but it was a really fiddly one. Gai - if you can do teeny tiny PPs ( :mrgreen: ) you CAN do needleturn - hey, if I do PP you SHOULD do needleturn! Only fair! :D

    What's a "squishy?" I'm new to this site and to quilting.
    What's a UFO? WIP? Tute? This is a new language to me.
    I am delighted to see that so many quilters are also animal
    lovers (based on the photo on their messages).

    UFO - UnFinished Object (I think... I know it's one of those projects that's been in your closet for years and you started it but haven't finished it or thought of it in months)
    WIP - Work In Progress
    Tute - Something you do on a horn (okay, I got the first 2... :lol: )

    :lol: Lucy!

    Tute is short for tutorial - check out that section on the board, there are some great ones there, posted by our members.

    A squishy is a package of fabric sent either by one member to another (we're such a caring, sharing bunch :wink: ) OR fabric ordered by mail!

    Great squishy, Gai. (:D :D I'm sure you wouldn't be happy with any of it, so let me give you my address.**) I really love those greens.
