Very pretty quilt.   It really tickles me how so many of you just can not follow instructions but go off onto tangents of your own....LOL>   The borders on this are going to be awesome.

Maggie,

I know what you mean. The camo fabric was originally $10/yd. Since I got 8yds, I saved $40 on that alone!

Aaaaand - I can do one even better!

That same store I purchased the sheets (King sized, 100% cotton, $11.00) - had a whole bunch of pillowcases for $.19 ea.

It's a local store to East Tennessee/Knoxville area and they always have some sort of closeout or clearanced item I scoop up and repurpose for something else. Lol.

But why did I buy THIRTY pillowcases? Because they were all beautiful patterns. I spend the evenings watching the Olympics and ripping out the side and bottom seams. It was like getting 1yd of fabric for $.19!

That's 30 yrds of fabric for $5.70!

The trim on my son's pillowcases, sheets, and eventually curtains came from 1 of the pillowcases I purchased. Good score!

Oh Nana,you must feel like you are  trying to herd squirrels!  ROFLOL.  I felt that way when I was a den mother, 40 years ago, and took a bunch of 8 year olds to the museum.


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

I would rather try to herd quilters than 8 yr olds.   ROFLOL

Judy T-Bellingham:

I'm working on a few quilts. First and foremost is the fall charm swap. It's coming along well and I think it may turn out to be one of my favorites.  I'm also working on Nana's June Scrappy. I chopped it up quite a bit. Make Disappearing 9 Patch blocks and turned them on-point. I'll use the leftovers for the borders. I already have one on the top. This will be a lap quilt for a friend who just lost her son to a motorcycle accident.

Judy - very sweet quilt - I truly love the scrappy look and that border is awesome - lots of border work but then it is mostly done from leftovers if I am right?  Great job.

I have been working on my 9 patch blocks for my rainbow quilt - had 111 to make - have 40 done... I do 8 at a time - lol - each strip made 8 blocks so I get myself up and do 8 blocks - then I have to rest my back - but I am getting there... they set right next to the sewing machine and I have left the machine on during the day to get myself over there...

After this mornings early phone calls and problems I have been just being lazy - going to take my pain meds - get the clothes out of the dryer and the next load in the dryer - then done with laundry for the day - have to do it at 6 in the am because the state has asked us too - wonder how many others try to conserve the energy like i do... probably a lot...lol... but I did the 2 loads and then napped so the last load will go in the dryer shortly - good thing not Jay's heavy jeans - did those Sat morning... then I have to work on this living room floor some more - animals - argh!!!

I have been working on this table runner for a co workers birthday.  It is quilt as you go and all I have left is the binding.  Gonna use the blue binding in the pic.

Judy, this is beautiful!  Yet another way to do a disappearing 9 patch.  Love the border made out of the leftovers.  Very unique.

Woo-Hoo, Rachel! Great deals you got and the pillowcases for your son are terrific. Make sure he doesn't wear Camo PJ's or you'll never know if he's in his bed or not - LOL!!

Nana, Novice Scrappy Princess that I am, I followed your instructions EXACTLY. I like what I did, but... Now I am looking at all the neat ways people (including Judy T) turned these into unique and very special quilts!  I am truly amazed and wondering why I didn't think of that!!!  Next time, I will be more creative with my scrappies...I promise...LOL!

Judy T -  I love what you did with this.  A D9P was perfect to make this shine!

HELP!!!!  As I have said, I am a new quilter of 1 1/2 years.  One of the many areas I have yet to master is putting the two ends of binding together on the quilt in the diagonal.  I have finally figured out how to do it when sewing the strips together to make the binding, but no matter what I do or how hard I try I cant get it on the quilt.  I end up doing a straight finish every time and it doesnt look good.

Does anyone know of a tutorial, video that might help me figure this out.
