don't be too impressed, I copied the heart from this book .  A quilting friend here gave me the book and the kit a few months ago (which I seriously doubt I'll ever do) but it was a good source of heart applique ideas.  I was more impressed that I figured out how to enlarge and shrink it to just the right size on my home printer. smile

aagggh...

I found when I was mailing masks, if I folded  them (usually mailed two at a time) inside of a card (not just a piece of paper) it was able to squish down far enough to fit into their machine...and the surface was not puffy. Post Office never questioned the postage...I did weigh them on  my ancient postage scale and added an extra stamp when it went over one ounce...but they all got to where they were going..

something else to think about.

I picked up a copy of that book at Retreat last year! Love those designs...

I do too.  I had looked at it several years ago when it first came out, there were a couple of quilts at the Dallas show that i really liked.  But then I looked at all those inside points and thought it would drive me crazy!  Then a few months ago my quilty cousin who used to work at a quilt shop told me she was thinning her stash & to come by.  That's where I got the plaid fabric for DD's pink quilt.  Cousin insisted I take this kit that included the book.  I think one of the ladies in the local guild gave it to her and since cousin doesn't applique she gave it to me.  Two or 3 of the block fabrics are missing but the remaining are all batik.  No background fabric, just fabrics for the applique,  small pieces, not big enough really to use for anything other than applique.  I might do one or two just as a sampler type project.

Since I had no suitable floral fabrics I had make a trip to a fabric store.  Horrors!  Since I had to buy two FQs because I could not make up my mind I had to stitch and stitch and stitch and, there I was unable to make up my mind. I'm forced to stuff all blocks in the Priority Mail envelope I happen to have on hand.

(Notice I typed this above story with no use of the absent key on my keyboard.)

Suze can pitch the blocks she does not like or use the excess to fill in any blanks in her future quilt. Or line a bird cae.  (Does she have a bird?)
