    Yes, it most definitely will...

    Yikes, I'm working with yardage and after making separate HST's, I have exactly 4 1/4 x WOF of green left. Hoping for no more green but, you never know. There is always more at the LQS.

    Well... I finally worked myself up to finished the sewing on the units for clue 3... I still need to cut them apart and press them and pray to the quilting gods that the size works out... I'm going to say that I have a few 2" HST that are actually about 1 7/8"... but I'm going to say close enough... I can get that much wiggle here and there.

    Back to the table to cut and press... wish me luck and encouragement... this has been a struggle to be motivated to complete this week...

    (((lora))) and all of us. Even though in our own oddball ways we take a miss on christmas, I can feel the pressure all around me in anything public. Breathe. Release. Breathe. Release

There are 112 pieces in each block...over 4700 for the queen size I had planned to make. It will be a long lasting project.

    FeathersNFur - your scraps are fantastic!

    Carol -- I think your tans are great. You can easily tell the differences in the colors. Your Hunter's Star is beautiful.

    I was lamenting the sameness of my orange -- Thank you Lisa & Sync for the advice but I bowed to peer pressure and got more orange

    Found the solids and skeletons in my stash - I know the skeletons are too big but cut up but they glow in the dark so I used 2 small pieces.... the rest is from a 3 store orange hunt.
    I may have a fabric problem.

Unplugged machine and went to turn on my desk lamp, (so I could see what happened to my machine) ...... desk lamp did not turn on .............. cr@p ........ checked the other two electric outlets in my dining/sewing room. All 3 electric outlets are not working!!!!!! Hubby checked the circuit breakers and they are fine. Dang ......... now I need to get an electrician and find another spot for my sewing <sigh>
