I’ve got a copy of Quiltmaker Magazine going directly to……..
(((((Insert Drum Roll!)))))
Ever since I discovered your site several years ago, I've been addicted to making scrappy quilts! My husband calls them "garbage quilts" because he threatened to throw my 15 year collection of scraps in the garbage unless I started to use them.
I used your "scrap users" system to get them organized and now they get used regularly. I still think that they reproduce in the bins when I'm not looking!
Susan, Congrats to you! This issue will be winging it’s way to you as soon as you email me back with your snail mail address.
Thanks everyone for playing along!
And just to celebrate a bit with Susan --- here’s something that was emailed to me along with the caption of
“This is an example of what can happen if boys don’t have a video game!”Holy Bluegrass, Batman! My toes are a tappin’!
Oh my goodness, how cute! I think the thing I loved the best was their playing this with the model of the space ship there on the bedside --- and normal “boy mess” scattered about the floor. I love the happiness of a house full of music!
And it’s a good thing that this is lifting my spirits because ----
I thought I was doing so great working on the borders for Florabunda --- I sewed my strip sets together, loaded up the accuquilt to sub-cut them….all nice and neat ----
You might not even notice at first glance that something is terribly wrong here -----
Do you see it? Look at the few that have wandered astray and are flipped loose of their rows ----
I just cut the whole mess of 4 patch parts with the 1.5” die --- instead of the 2” die. AUUUUGHGHGHGHGHGH!
Back to the drawing board!! ((And I guess I’ll have to design something with rectangular 4 patches at SOME POINT…..but NOT TODAY!))
