If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

wow guys! All of the blocks are so lovely.

southern flower- your points really are perfect..such nice work!

rita- I wish you'd signed up for 3 groups, cause everyone deserves a block like that Smiley

KRB- I really like the blocks you've done so far! I especially like tha Balkan Puzzle for whoopdedoo.

whoopdedoo_5- I really like the little 9 patches in your blocks- so cute. You're so quick! I love it.

LibbyK- What kind of iron do you use? Your seams are so perfectly pressed. Also, I think the block for whoopdedoo_5 is really great for her fabrics.

and Sandy- WOW what a labor intensive block! It's so cute with your dainty fabrics. I can see why you'd only want to make one, but I know a bunch of us wouldn't mind if you made some more Tongue And BTW- your trick of taking a picture of the address label with the fabric is a good one. Anything helps when trying to stay organized!



and a reminder to everyone:
If you have to add a border to bring the block up to size, make sure it's bigger than 1/4" wide. If it's too close to 1/4", it gets buried in the seam allowance. If you are using a site like quilterscache.com, be sure to use a SCANT 1/4" seam allowance- they are notorious for having their blocks come up a bit short. I have definitely fallen victim to this many times and I know it was a problem for some last round!
Everyone's doing really great so far and there are some fantastic blocks in the gallery already- keep up the good work!

Hey everyone!  I added pictures of my fabrics and instructions that I was going to include the packages, but my printer ran out of ink...  Hoping to post these on Monday!

Yay, I got both of my groups sent out today! Now I just have to work on stuff for my craft fair next week, and then I can start stitching on all this pretty fabric I keep receiving!

The blocks so far are very fun to look at!

LibbyK -- I was so excited to see the first block for me in the gallery.  It's GREAT -- I love it!!  And yes, it absolutely fits into the vision I had for these fabrics.  Thanks so much!

I've been able to make two blocks so far this weekend, but no pictures yet.  I hope to have them posted sometime tomorrow (Sunday).
