I know what you mean--I had been procrastinating about starting it b/c of having to buy so much fabric.  I had hardly anything that would work.  What I said about not too much time/effort sounds awful when I re-read it, because I want the quilt to turn out really well--but it isn't an heirloom.  DD said last night that he will take care of it but will really USE it.  I feel about dorm and cuddle quilts the way I do about baby quilts--they're made to be used, loved, and worn out.

Hi, Lynda!  I'm glad you liked the tetris quilt.  I don't know which pattern you have, but the freebie I used was a revision of the first one QuilterGeek posted, and it was so much simpler.  The first one had 13 pieces in each 4 inch (I think) block, while Tetris 2 has only four--she also cut the number of fabrics in each from five to 3.  Being able to do the quick 1/4 square triangles from squares with no bias edges made it faster too.  I want this quilt to be nice, but it's going to be a dorm quilt for a young man who wasn't raised with quilts---in other words, it's not an heirloom, and I'm not looking to put too much time/effort in it.  Probably you already have a good pattern, but I thought I would mention it just in case--have a great day!

I worked on it some last night, Lynda, and even in really good light, the stain isn't visible---the vinegar treatment worked wonders (although i sometimes think I'm smelling pickles, LOL),  One of the first wedding present DH and I received was a lace table cloth.  The first time I used it for guests, it got a stain on it and at the tiime I didn't know how to remove it.  Turned out to be a liberating experience---I've used that table cloth over and over, take it places, put it under my Christmas tree--the fact that it wasn't perfect made me feel free to use it and enjoy it.  Our minds work in strange ways, don't they?

I had to have a customer this morning smell her quilt before she took it home....how embarrassing!!! She looked at me with wild eyes and said what!!!! On the weekend dear hubby thought he would make a batch of beans. Soaked them overnight then put them on to boil.  As any sane person would, he then went out to do yard work, not returning until he heard the screaming smoke alarm!!! Off he flew into the house to rescue his beans without giving a thought to quilts and fabric. The house was full of… Continue
