Snugglebug Quilter:

I have a question.  What are the hst everyone is talking about?  I just loped off my corners and pitched them. Did I miss something?!  My first MQ and I'm a bit nervous now!  Lol. 

Their are some overachievers (LOL) that sewed another seam 1/4" on the other side of the corner so they would have host and wouldn't waste the fabric.  This is not a part of the basic MQ pattern.

I do not like the way the iPad thinks it can spell better than me.  When I say hst I mean it...not host.

HI  Karen...Can you tell me what  " minky "  is ?   Is it anything like Fleece ?

Micky is a very soft micro-fiber fabric.  It is softer than fleece.  You should go to a fabric store and feel the difference!  You will fall in love.

minky is this incredibly soft fabric you just want to caress and hold up to your face fabric.  You can find it in most fabric stores now, including many quilt stores.  In quilt stores it is usually with the fabrics for babies.  It is very stretchy however, so one has to be more careful when sewing with it.  It's thick like fleece, oh so soft!

I know exactly what you mean!  I had to correct it twice before posting!  Love it and yet sometimes not so much!  LOL

I think that is a really great idea with the hst though.  I'm thinking to try another version of this quilt (if I get busy with it that is) and if I do I'll definately try that idea.  I like the idea of wasted not want not, it's putting it into practice that's the problem!!  LOL

morning everyone.  Sun shining here, hope it actually gets warm, but then I will complain it is hot haha. Well I decided not to do the hst. I did one, and agree that they are cute but just to small. I do not see myself trying to deal with a few hundred of them. I am with some of you others and thinking of starting another quilt top. Maybe something in blues for my dad because the other option would be to clean house. Any feed back on what I should do A or B....

That one was just me...can't blame it on the iPad!  I noticed it after I posted.  But then again, typing on the iPad is not like a real keyboard so that's my excuse.

Sandy, I did purchase the kit from Missouri Quilt, is it not appropriate to receive enough fabric to finish a quilt top?  I did not get enough from Missouri to get the appropriate number of blocks.  Isn't this something that is figure out before kits are sold?

Shucks, might have to do some <shudder> housework! Yuck!

I have also decided SOME housework needs doing today.  The floors all need attention.  Was going to mow lawn but Rich is doing it now, so that "excuse" is gone.  We were given some barbecued chicken by an Amish family after we had moved horses and heifers for them, so dinner is set.  All I have to do is heat it up!  Another excuse gone.  So, off to the floors then to finish part 2 and part 3 if there is any time or energy left.

Such a beautiful, sunny day!  Enjoy your Sunday, everyone.

Here are my steps 1, 2, and 3

From large flakes of snow covering everything yesterday to full sunshine and 20 deg. celcius (about 75 faren.) today. But I'll take it. Finished step 3, guess now I have time to cut out another quilt this week.

Very nice Lashawn, I really like the colors you are using.

Will post pics of my progress a little later on.

Cheers everyone!
