How are you doing so far? Anyone made any blocks? I've seen a few pop up on flickr, so I know I'm not completely alone over here. I had a break from sewing to go to Houston for Quilt Market (as you know) but it's back to the grind stone again and we need to get this quilt moving along. I still have about half of my A blocks to sew together, but if you feel like you want to give the B blocks a try and leave your others to one side for a while, then here's the instructions for block B.... First off you will need to select (for each block); 12 black squares* 8 blue squares* 29 mixed scrap squares i'm a ginger monkey: scrap vomit quilt along - block B
Well we're at week 4 and guess what, I fell off the wagon already. I couldn't resist... they just jumped into my arms at the quilt shop - they screamed at me that they needed a home, to be loved and amongst all those other loverly fabrics so neatly and orderly stacked together.

Your imagination is the only limit to what all you can do with these letter sets. They are four inches tall and have iron on adhesive (wonder under) applied on the backs.

I have also made bean bag sets and cloth books with these. ABCs alphabet set fabric 4 inch letters for by jkduncanOriginals

Freezer paper is that wonderful stuff you can find in your grocers storage aisle along with Ziploc bags and foil wrap. One side is paper and the other has a light coating of a plastic which melts like wax when you iron it. To adhere it to fabric, place the wax side down on the wrong side of the fabric, then use a medium iron to adhere it to the fabric. Ostensibly for wrapping meat, I suspect freezer paper is used far more often for quilting fabrics. Buy good quality freezer paper - Reynolds is far easier to use for freezer paper piecing than Costco, for example. Great Uses for Freezer paper
