    I love it!!! The ole memory just isn't what it once was! HAHA

Make sure you share pictures of your projects. We love to look.
    As far as your question of what quilt you purchased 2 layer cakes for, ole Grampz here says who cares? At least you have the layer cakes. lol. My wife puts me on a tight budget. lol. Yep Gramz knows how to pinch pennies. She pinches pennies so bad Abe Lincoln asked for his hat back! lol
    Again welcome! welcome!

    Hey Grampz! Thanks for the welcome!. I've about decided to use one layer cake for one design block and the other for a diffeent block and put them together. I've got yardage for the outside and binding and I'll call it a "I Can't Remember" Quilt!

    They are really pretty. I've got some files that I seem to remember downloading. I'm going to look there tonight. Thanks again!

    The only other site that I can think of that uses those lines Bonnie and Camille.. "Miss Kate" (and others in those colors) quite a bit is Craftsy. You may check them out. There are more lines in those colors by Bonnie and Camille too. I got a bunch on a Bus tour a few years ago.

    I used one of their lines.. same colors, different prints, for a BIG Pinwheel quilt and also for a Double Slice Layer Cake. I get a lot of compliments on those. You might look at those tutorials for your fabrics. I also like to get extra fabrics or use extra to make matching Shams and toss pillows to match my quilts, so I have a whole ensemble when I change out the quilts in my bedrooms.
    That definitely could be. I just wish I could remember. Getting older really isn't fun.

    I learned the BIG ZIP LOCK BAG trick a while back too... I make up quilt kits.

    My best advice is to relax... and enjoy watching videos until you find the one Jenny made with that fabric. The Tutorials don't always match the quilts in the BLOCK. Jenny make one on the video and uses one fabric line and when BLOCK comes out, it may be in another line. Just be patient.. it will come to you.
    This is definitely a possibility. I'm going to look again tomorrow. I have files on my computer, too. While I'm almost positive it's one of Jenny's, it "could" be someone elses.... Thanks for the advice about relaxiing. The first night I went to bed and dreamed (or had nightmares) about that silly quilt. I'm finding as I get older that my memory isn't what it was and I'm not liking it very much.
    Thanks.

    I believe that you will find that Jenny did the "DISAPPEARING HOURGLASS" Quilt with the "Miss Kate" Line by Bonnie and Camille, and the quilt is in Volume 1 ... issue 4 of Block!! Pages 16-23.

    Please look up the tutorial also... I think you will enjoy it! The tutorial is a different fabric...

    Here it is... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXggafOP230&t=131s
    Oh... that just might be it! I'm confused, however because I purchased 2 layer cakes of the same fabric! I'm not sure what I was thinking.... wonder how it would look.

    When I get a project in mind, either because I bought the pattern or the fabric, I make an entry in OneNote on my computer. I have a little template set up for quilts, so I copy it and add the parts I have already obtained (pattern, fabric, etc). Then the things I need are left to be filled in. It works great for me so far.

    I use OneNote because it's free and easy to make notes and such. And there's a companion app on my phone, so I have access to my notes when I'm at the store too. win win But there are other ways to keep track too - quiltplanner.com is a printed calendar journal that looks good.
    Thank you for your reply. I, too, am in San Antonio. Do you think we might know each other? haha I'm not familiar with OneNote at all. Is it difficult to learn?
