    sandpat, paper pieceing is soooo easy, you don't even need anybody to show you how, just buy a pattern and follow the directions on the pattern.

    Mamagus and Dojo,

    Thanks so much for the "insider info" I've added both sites to favorites for now. I'll have to take time to read through them and pick a pattern. You'll see my WIP so soon as I finish the 2 quilts I have going right now. Hubby can't stand too many laying around in our tiny house...he has nowhere to sit or walk..LOL!

    :lol: :lol: What a terrific way to use up all those little scraps we all collect and still come out with something that looks like everything belongs where it is.

    :?: :?: I think I sent a reply to the wrong place so here I go again. Your quilt looks like a great way to use all those small scraps we seem to collect and still have it look like everything goes together, like we actually went out and bought all the fabric just for this quilt. :P :P

    I love those colors matter of a fact i have about 1000 squares cut that are
    3 3/4 inch squares an three quilts that are rectangles.With them bright colors an ablack that looks like a marble top counter.when I got that material I had gotten 3yds of it the first time an then every time after that if I seen they still had it I'd get more.I just fell in love with the look of the marbleing in the material it really is assum looking.This quilt you have here will be a to for me also.when I get started I pitty my hubby he aint going to have no peace i'll be sewing all day an night again.But he knows if i'm sewing i'm a happy momma.
    An as the saying goes if momma ain't happy nobody's happy in this house.
