      Wow... that lone star is stunning! Very nice job....
      You know you've had too much coffee when you can thread a sewing machine while it's running.

        Well...I never put 2 & 2 together about the puzzles and quilting, but now that it has been brought to my attention, you are all totally right! My mother and I both loved to put puzzles together...when she passed away I found all her puzzles in the basement and had to bring them home with me. She also loved to make quilts...as a matter of fact I learned by watching her!

        About the credit card and the phone...seems the phone is always at arms reach away, however, the credit card isn't (but using an old one as a straight edge is a good idea!) I was actually waiting on a phone call from my son in Florida because he was setting up a fishing trip for us when we go down in May and I needed to pay for it. One thing I don't like to do is shop (with the exception of going to JoAnn Fabrics or Michaels or anywhere else that I can purchase fabric) so Home Shopping Network is definitely out.

        That Lone Star actually went together pretty easily using the strip method. I found how to make it in a quilt book (of course!). Thanks for all the compliments...makes me feel good!

          Is the name of the very colorful quilt, "Scrap Quilt?" If not, is there somewhere I can find directions to make one like it. I love the colors!!

            Sandy it wasn't too bad...I found an easy way to make it in a quilting book... using strips sewn together. I can scan it and send it to you if you like.

              Pat, I saw a picture of one like it in one of the quilting magazines and decided to make one. I just followed the picture for the lay out...I called it the scrap quilt because I used scraps to make it. It was easy and went together quickly. Each square is 3x3 inches.
              Feel free to copy mine...have fun!

                I don't have room for my quilt frame either, but my husband would rather it be in the living room taking up space than to have it upstairs in my sewing area and me up there working on it when he is home. He doesn't mind me working on it, just likes to be in the same room with me...

                  That Lone star is stunning. It really looks as if the colours are radiating from the centre. Absolutely lovely x
