    Mail them to me, 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.
    Have a blessed day in HIS name!

      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...... 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?
          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.

                  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 shame on me!
