:icon_wave::icon_wave:Mail them to me, lol. :lol::lol: Try some coasters using the new tut on quilt as you go. Umm candle mats. I know hillbilly has an easy candle mat tut on her blog. It is super easy to do. OOO I just remembered. On her tut she does a candle mat and a table runner out of a charm pack. So if your just wanting to do candle mat read it carfully. You can email me and Ill send ya my addy, lol.

AHAH!! did you get some deals today??? for the charm pack i am looking forward to a snowball quilt. Turnovers are for fun windmills! I made one last spring from a "snippets" pack (had to add some yardage) was super easy! Tutorial by jenny is called stack and whack - picture in my albums......:D OF COURSE this is after you are completed with your Christmas Stars . right?? ;)

They did a fantastic tutorial a while ago for a friendship star. I think it uses a charm pack and turnovers and it looks really easy

Sally, does your turnover and charm pack match or just go together?:D
I didn't know whether to buy the same pattern in both or just so they go together. Stupid question? LOL

What?? and I am getting ready to do a tute all about turnovers. Oh man, and it was going to be so good too. It was going to be a sampler showing several triangly blocks. I have been planning it for awhile. I sure wish my life would settle down a bit and let me sew a stitch or two!

Wow, now I'm bummed. Turnovers are made from 6" squares (I think..it's been a couple of weeks since I looked at it). Charms are 5" squares, so there really isn't a way to adapt my pattern from pre-cuts.

Phooey. :icon_angry:

Well! That sucks that they have discontinued Turnovers. I guess they will explore other shapes and sizes now. They have the "candybar" rectangles.
Glad I got my "Snippets" Turnovers when I did!

NO Worries...not that you were. But I was. It sure did my brain some good to worry about something trivial during the night for a change. And I got it!! I will adapt the tutorial to a layer cake. Of course it will require some changes, and you know me...if I design something I have to use EVERY piece cuz I don't like having extra scraps I'll never use. Ooohhh something new to design. How fun! Must get me a layer cake now. Never bought one of those before. Oh, I am so sorry. I went :icon_offtopic: shame on me! :icon_slap::icon_slap:
