    I think there is no rule here. I add folks whose work I like. Then I can click on my buddy list on their name and see if they have posted anything new. Anyone else chime in on this?
    I do that too, then you can see how a particular project is going, keep in touch with anyone you may have met in person or those who have a similar quilting style (or special addiction - like vintage:)). People here are very open and friendly, so sending someone a private message or adding them as a buddy is not something to stress about.

    I love your ideas. Thank you so very much for sharing your ideas. For a suggestion for the flutterbies: What if you kept every third one in a line. Then find something very simple to fill in the space. Or... What if you made them just a little larger and farther spaced? What if they were randomly spaced, yet strategically placed at the same time? What if they were different sizes? What if some of your blocks were part of the flutterbies wings? Just brainstorming. I have absolutely no idea how you could do that one, but it sounds cool. I've got a couple of fabrics that I can't wait to do this pattern. I got one of the fabrics on sale about a year ago with this pattern in mind. It's kind of obnoxious and odd colors, but that's why I got it. I want to see what it will change in to...like your butterflies.

    Hi Rockeeann - great brainstorming! You would be great to have around whenever someone is trying to come up with ideas! Hey cool - you are up there in Alaska! My brother and his wife live in Fairbanks.

    You have solved a big problem I was having with how to quilt a OBW. After seeing how you were using the hexagons to develop the designs, I took the template and worked on an idea that might be pretty easy. I haven't figured out how I will connect the daisies in a way that I don't have to start and stop on each one, but I think I can figure that out, too. Thanks again for your help.

    Hi Gurugal!
    Let me tell you I am so delighted you found the blank template helpful and that you posted a beautiful design idea. That's exactly what i had hoped people would do. If you can still edit your posting, you should go back to the picture and change the title at the top and put your own name there, so you get the credit!

    That's a great idea BuzzinBumble, but it was too late to edit when you suggested the change. Next time. Thank you for your encouragement. I meant to have the daisies touch the sides of all the hexagons so I could connect them, but I didn't quite get it right. But it gives the idea across. I think I'll put a few left-over hexagons together and try several of your ideas and the daisies - one pattern in each hex. I can't decide what would look best.
