Well Phooey! I got the title all wrong.

Anyhow I have approx. 30 pieces of muslin 25" to 36" long, and at least 14" wide at the narrowest part.

I just finished cutting the inner bags for bean bags chairs for the grands and this is scrap. If any one can use it, I'll be glad to send it, sure hate to throw it away but my storage space is very limited.

Darn, you all are too quick for me!!!! Kathy, if you need some coordinating fruit & veg prints, I have been collecting those to do a canning jar quilt. I'll have plenty left after my project. I think I finally have enough to make a great top & found the border fabric last trip to PA. I have the "fruit ladies" for the backing.

I can share, Jean! I filed away a pattern for one of those canning jar quilts too, thought it would be a cute kitchen addition. I'm sure there are repeats on that 1/2 yard. The other thing I have on my Wish List is the State Flower fabrics, so pretty! Keepsake sells for 11.20 yd, fabric.com sells for 8.98 yd, a Fabri-Quilt line. I remember the embroidery transfers that my Aunt had, a complete 50 state pattern. Combine that with the florals someway, sounds neat!

Kathy - the piece is yours!!!! I'm not sure how I'd incorporate it into what I'm going & think it might clash with the border fabric I found.
I peeked at a jar pattern yesterday. The large jar body is a 5 1/2 X 9 1/2 rectangle to start with. That was about what I had guesstimated. The pattern I saw was different as it had some jars on their sides with the lids off.

But, this will wait till after the holidays.

Well I've always said you could find anything on Ebay, but this time I'm stumped. What I need might be there but after going through 45 of over 800 pages...

Any how, DGD Jessica collects and loves Eeyores, has since she was little. This one is fairly old probably more than 10 years. It got a bit puppy loved and needs a fix. I thought I could get another one and use it to patch this one..but no go.

His color is more what I call colonial colors so they are not as bright as they look here. If any one has a bit of chenille, (searching under chenille got three none of which were actually chenille) I would need a piece about 4"x 5". If the blue isn't an exact match, well it's better than a hole.

I thought of that but Eeyore us a yarn or cotton string chenille. I have though if I can find the right fabric and yarn I could make it by hand.
A friend in CA has tons of Eeyore stuff and is looking to see if she has one. Seems a shame to destroy one to fix another but DGD is very attached to this one.

OK I have a solution. I found a site through Ebay, chenillemagic.com, that has small samples. I just ordered two packs for less than $5 with shipping.

His tail is the same fabric as where the hole is. I'm going to deconstruct the taik and use it for the patch. Then I'll use a sample piece to make a new tail. That way I don't have to worry about an exact match as the tail can be a bit different.

He works for a company called KGB_Inc - they are a call center for ATT, Sprint, etc. Right now, he is an asst call center mgr, who dabbles in the it helpdesk too.
If we move, it will be to Greensboro area . . . the call center is just outside of that, in McLeansville . . .

OK Karen, I'll be gracious and keep the postage. You are more than welcome to any fabrics I may have to share.
I can't seem to find a fabric I'm looking for. I'm looking for a pale cream with a tiny touch of blue in it. I want it for the globetrotting BOM. ( think the link is on the other sewing thread) I have everything else I need in my stash. I only need 1/4 yd so it's not worth sending away for it. My purpose this year is to use up the stash!! I still have a couple of places to look so I'm not giving up yet. I really would like to do this one in blues but I'll change if I can't find what I want.
I need one 6.5" square and 12- 3.5" squares. That's all for the whole quilt!

This fabric is for the Washington DC block like Thunder posted on the other sewing thread and is the small solid squares and the center. Now after going back to look, she put a different material in her center too!!!!

It is a mystery BOM Pat. This center will be surrounded by smaller blocks and pieced borders. We only get to see a layout of the quilt. We do our own colors and the placement when we put it together can be what we want around that center. I'm not sure if I am going to keep it in patriotic colors or branch out with all kinds of colors yet. I'm using fabrics from my stash to use them up...

We have a winter storm advisory and church was canceled. That's only the 2nd time in my life I can remember THAT happening! Now I have EXTRA time to work on the quilt.

Does anyone have any sunflower fabric? I'm fixing a quilt my great grandmother gave to my younger sister . . . there are some holes, and I'd like to fill those with sunflowers, so it will be similar to what is already there. I don't think I'll need a lot, but if anyone has a spare half yard, or a fat quarter or two. If not, I can look the next time I go to Joann's . . . it's not like I'm going to rush this one . . .

My plan is: remove quilting stitches, toss batting. Get some lightweight fusible webbing and apply to back of each side. I'll have to replace some pieces where there is just holes, but I've got various 9 patches with the same basic color theme. Then, once each side has it's webbing, iron to a very lightweight muslin. Once each side is attached with muslin, then sandwich with new batting - probably Warm & Natural. I figure I'll tie it, instead of doing any quilting pattern to it. I'm thinking I'll get a dark blue checker fabric to make my own binding for it.

Is Warm and Natural good for tying? How close would you need to do it? The quilt is really nice Nichole.
I will look through my stash in the morning for sunflowers...
I finished my Lesson 6/Block 14 this morning. I like the way my points came out...

That's pretty, Barb!

I don't know what batting is good for tying . . . I just go with what I have used for other quilts. I've not actually tied one before. I've heard tell that tying about every 12" or so . . . the way this top was created that would be doable.

I will look through my stash and see if have sunflowers left. Do you need large print or small print?

I'm thinking maybe something medium to large? That way they won't clash with the small ones there . . .

nice quilt, Nichole! It will be quite a bit of rework, but will definitely be worth it! No sunflower prints here, I've yet to find any nice ones locally.
Pretty block, Barb - those are some really sharp points, good job! The blue and green combo goes together nicely!
When Mom and Gma tied quilts, they spaced them about 6". On a quilt like the above, the knots were tied in the corners of the squares. I have one from my Aunt, tied with pearl cottons, about 4" apart that is still going strong. She used an old blanket for the replacement batting. A little heavy but is really warm!

Made my self a note to check stash tomorrow. I had some sunflower, don't remember if I still do, seems I sent some to some one. Darned CRS.

I'd look now but I let my Dr. talk me into a shot today and my arm is all but useless. Was such a wasted visit anyhow. She had me get blood work done again because of Kidney concerns. Had me come in today just so she could tell me it was fine. A phone call could have saved me 20 miles 2 hours and $25.00.

I'm not having any luck Nichole. I may have sent what I had to LK when she was asking for them. Another tote to check but it is buried so I need to wait for Norm to move for me.

I hate those follow up visits too Karen. To me they are a waste of time. And then, when there is something, the nurse calls and tells you to watch out for something and then leaves you hanging. My heart doc put me on a new med and then I had blood work a week later to see what it does to me. She told me that my blood work came back okay but that my potassium level was high and to avoid eating foods that were high in it. If you check on this you find that potassium is in everything. If it is good for you, such as raw veggies you should not eat it. If it has been processed which isn't good for you, it is safe to eat. Damned if I do and if I don't. So much for trying to eat healthy. And then you throw in Norm's diabetes for good measure with all the things he should and should not eat. Total opposites!!!!!

I was OK with the checking, but not having to go all the way there for her to tell me Oh it's fine, not going to do anything. She did this to me once before, made me an appointment with a surgeon before i even had the tests. Turned out I didn't need to see surgeon, called and cancelled that one then let her know. She messaged back " I agree".

didn't see any nice sunflower or cone prints while I was out today. HOWEVER... Nichole, our local Joann's has St Patty's prints 50% off, and they had a whole bolt of the white on white shamrock... if you need more, I can go back and get some for you.

Thanks Thunder. I have done a lot of paper-piecing so I'm not sure if I will do the practice blocks or not. They would make nice mug rugs though... At least I won't feel any pressure to "get them done". I still haven't decided on a sashing material either. I'll be doing a bit of catch-up when I do!!!

I checked the mail today, and I had 3 packages! Yay! To be fair, they could have been here yesterday, but it was too cold to check the mail!

2 packages were sunflower fabric - thanks Karen and LK!!

I know some of you have good embroidery machines. I'm making a t-shirt memory quilt for my DGD who's dad passed away last month.

She gave me all his shirts and one of them is plain. I was wondering if one of you could embroider on it. "In loving memory of my dad" with his name and dates.. I would be willing to pay for this, either in cash or what ever I could give or do for you.
