Yippiee!!

So on those little bags. I left a comment asking for tips, hints etc. She emailed me back!! So yippiee This is what she said"Thanks for your comment. It takes a bit of practice to get the seams to match. I usually press them going in opposite directions and then pin right on the matched seams. The bulk (of the seam allowances)going in
opposite directions seems to help.;"
So it worked!!!

Than while he was helping his cousin. I used a small jelly roll. There were 2 strips of 10 colors 2 1/2 total yards. I used a 5 inch block for the center & got strips for 3 blocks out of 2 strips. So I have 5 blocks x 6 blocks, fun!

Congrats on figuring out the bag!

Great finds. I love the thrill of finding things at a thrift store.

The jelly roll quilt turned out sweet.

Great bargains. Your blog isn't showing up on my blog thingee anymore since you changed the blog name ever so slightly. Even though I"m a follower, I have to scroll down my list and look at your blog instead of being notified when it's updated. What a PAIN!!! LOL
