    I was starting to get worried about the package arriving. Sheesh, takes you as long to get a package as it does for me! lol

    I'm glad you like the fabric. That's just stuff that I got when I was in Hawaii and it's just sitting on the shelf taking up space.

    No, you didn't make a fool out of yourself. I made the mistake when I posted the names. So, a good friend of yours and others here, PM'd me your addy and I sent it out. I was going to tell you, but decided to keep it a surprise. I was so hoping you would have gotten it the day you weren't feeling good.

    How did I get those surfer boys in there? Fabric Magic! lol

    Enjoy your fabric. I just wish, and I tell everyone that I send the fabric to,,,that I wish the colors were more vibrant.

    Enjoy!!

    Those were some of the first REAL quilts I made. I sort of cheated when I made them. They are all 40 inches wide. I didn't want to cut and piece the backing, so I made sure the top was the same width as the fabric I was using for the back. They are all little lap quilts I made and sent out for Christmas presents. I think they went out in 2005.

    Terri - Now thats not cheating in my book, its called using your noggin!!

    I wish somebody had guided me to being sensible about the size of this first quilt of mine.....Its so blinking big I am quilting it in two halves, I THOUGHT I had sat and studied and planned and measured and done everything possible to ensure a smooth journey to success....BUT realised as soon as I started to layer the first half that as I had added sashing of course the 'dead' centre of the quilt was in the middle of the centre sashing so I would have to join to one side....I had estimated using two full widths of fabric for the backing using a central vertical join - so basically one side is two inches wider than the other....so it has been a nightmare trying to position the layering of the second section exactly but with absolute nothing to spare...so hope to God the sides are straight...... :(

    So you see after all my ramblings, if I had JUST stuck to doing a 40" like you................. :roll: :roll:

    Unless I am following a pattern, NONE of my quilts are less than 90x90
