Hi Babs and Katy,

My, what busy bees you two have been today!  I came back from my quilt group to find lots of chat going on around here and lovely pictures too.

Thanks so much for the info on how to draw the hexagons with the compass Babs.  A compass is something I don't own but easily available in the many Chinese todo shops.  I think this would be a great exercise for my hubby!!!

Katy, I love the pictures you dug up especially the cushion and how useful that wrist pincushion would be.  Are we allowed those patterns in the projects section or do we have to hunt down back issues?

I think the table runner set is very clever and  I can quite see where the name came from.

Hi Alison,

I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures of your quilts.

I'll be doing mine with 4cm hexagons.  Not as tiny as the ones you're working with but I think that's as small as I dare go to start with.

It's kind of you to offer to draw the hexagons for me but now I have the secret of how Babs deals with her hexagons I'll have a go and see how I get on with that method first.

I will get at least one of those projects on the website this week, which would you like most?

What a hard decision......................I think, since I have several sewing friends that I need to make little gifts for this Christmas, I'll choose the wrist pincushion.  

Or you could put it to the vote to see which one the other members would like best?

Thank you!

Hi All, I have got started on a small version of my Maple Leaf Mayhem quilt, with the help of 1" Thangles. I think Thangles are a good idea, saves all the un-even cutting of the 7/8's.

Since joining this forum I have so many projects finished and also 3 on the go, and 1 in the planning stage. I'm just going to print out the next project of Brenda Dean's.

You're on a roll Caz and everything you've made is gorgeous.  I find being a member here in the forum very motivating and it sounds as though you do too.  

I can't wait to see your scaled down version of your Maple Leaf Mayhem quilt.  I still haven't looked at the Thangles yet so now I am reminded to do that,.

Talking of hexagons, I 've posted pictures in my gallery. There's a very moving story to this quilt but there was not enough space to fit 400 words!

Hi Alison,

Am I looking in the right place?  When I try to look at your pictures it tells me the album is empty
