Sent you one back!! Now you have two messages from me!
Batiks and stars...I don't have any Batiks, and I have never done a star....oh, I get to go buy fabric and learn something new Yeah !!
Wait a minute, I have been wanting another reason that I have to go buy Batiks...I have another project that one day I want to do, and I have been wanting to go buy some Batiks for that ...like WE need a reason to buy fabric. LOL
Candis, that you for doing this.
[oh you funny girl!! Ready set SHOP!! Thank you, it was after all , your suggestion!! ;). Friendship Stars are easy and look fantastic, but then go for the challenge!!! Show me what you got! Lol.
Candis :It was suggested to me that we make a Quilt for Thea. I have spoke with Thea, we just can't keep this one secret. She gets on the site to often!! She loves purple and blue. She also loves Batiks!
Candis, There is no way to keep anything a secret from Thea - - - she seems to be EVERYWHERE (when her internet and QCA cooperate),
Count me in for a block or two. I guess I will need to go fabric shopping - - - My tiny amount of blue and purple batik went into the block for Julz. I guess I just "have to" add some more blues and purples to the odd colors I got in a scrap pack a few years ago. Also some neutrals would help. Guess that makes a trip to at least JoAnn Fabrics or maybe somewhere else. The closest JoAnn Fabrics is 50 miles away. I need a fun day!!! I love both blue and purple myself so this is a good excuse to add some to my collection. I also needed a better contrasting choice of fabric for Julz's block. Should have taken that shopping trip sooner, but it is hard to leave Rich behind when I go shopping - he thinks he "needs" to go with me and doesn't think I need to shop for fabric - he thinks I have enough (nobody has enough!!!!) If I mention I need FABRIC he will probably stay home.
Thank you so much for undertaking another project like this. Thea really needs our hugs in the form of a soft, cuddly quilt. I am more ready to send out blocks now. This will be the 4th quilt I will be contributing a block for. Yesterday I bought some padded mailers so I could send out a few blocks today for another quilt. That will be better (I thing) than the copy paper and manila envelopes I used before. Somehow I think the manila is sturdier. My pen poked the outside of the envelope today when I was writing the mailing address. I reinforced that area with clear tape after finishing the address.

Candis - I just saw this. Please count me in also. I so appreciate all that you are doing. Thea is such a kind hearted person. I'm hoping we are signing our stars. When will you need these by. I am in the process of opening my quilt shop and don't want to forget it. I don't mind doing two if need be. Please let me know. I still have your info so I will go ahead and start.
