Thanks for all the info, and the MATH, Carrie~!

This was incredibly generous of you!


Thank you, Thank you!! I've already picked out fabric to make this----was just procrastinating on doing the math. Now I don't have to!


You, Thelma (and Camille) make a great team! Thanks for the recipe! Can't wait to see what you do with the rest of those charm packs!!

I am using my very old 10 pcs fat quarter bundle of Art Gallery solids. I am making them little. I like yours and Thelma's better, but I only have one charm pack.


Your quilt is beautiful. Thank you for the extra information!


I really want to make one of these and I have plenty of fabric on hand...it's just I already have so many things going, don't know if I can work in another one, but will hang onto the info you've provided so I can make one a little later. Yours is really pretty!


I am looking forward to the fabric. It is on my must buy list. Just one more question. What size did you trim the block down to?


I love these blocks! That color combo is great.

Hi Carrie! I haven't been posting many comments lately as winter has taken the wind out of my sails, though I try to spend at least 1-2 hours a day in my sewing room. It is my therapy, just to be surrounded by my stash (such as it is) and do a little fabric fondling while I'm in there if I don't feel like sewing. Fabric fondling is almost...but not quite at therapeutic as planning, cutting and sewing. Ah, but I digress, I just stopped in to tell you that you and Miss Rosie were on my mind and I wanted to say "Hi!" :o) ... So, there you have it. Hope all is well with you and yours and one of these days, I will be driving through Phoenix, maybe I'll drive by so I can say "I saw where Carrie and Miss Rosie live, LOL. Big, big hugs for you and lots of scratches for Rosie....

The Calico Quilter

This reminds me of a quilt I made over 20 years ago. I took white, a solid and a print and made 16 HSTs per block, 8 with the solid/white and 8 with the print/white. For each block I rearranged those 16 HSTs to make as many different 4 x 4 blocks as I could - no extra pieces allowed. I think I came up with 30 different blocks. My, my, I haven't looked at that quilt in a very long time!

I had printed Camille's cheat sheet and had a set of "print" fabrics pulled from stash, and was about to do the math for calculating background - and you saved me! Thanks so much...onto the HSTs :)

What a gorgeous quilt! Can't wait to get started!


Such a lovely quilt, Carrie! Though you used the equivalent of 3 1/2 charm packs, with your fabric-color restrictions, you actually broke into 10 charm packs, is that right: 14 prints x 10 packs = 140 print squares? Like the others, I can't wait to see what you make with the leftover reds, yellows and grays! P.S. I recently bought 3 packs of pins from your shop and they're fabulous!
