Congratulations Darlene - I'll be watching to see what you do with them!

I wanted to 'do' this little give-away quickly, so I could (mentally) get on with the next project - that's why I picked the FIRST response! Just seemed those fabrics HAD to be used, in honor of some little ole lady quilter of long ago, (hmmm - looking in the mirror at THIS almost little ole lady), who loved fabric then as much as we love it today.

THANK YOU for all the responses - 21 by 9:30 Sunday morning! A few of you said YOU wanted them, but "NOOOOO -- too many projects already"! LOL

I'm quilting MY project with these fabrics and find some are very tightly woven, and it takes a little extra effort to needle them. Therefore, I use a bar of soap (still in the wrapper) to 'park' my needle, and also keep a sheet of fabric softener handy to run my quilting thread through.

Happy Fall Day!

could you please explain.....'park' my needle and the sheet of fabric softener.
When pinning quilts, I use my Horn Cutting Table. Have had this for 23 years and just wouldn't be without it.
Is there no end to your talents girl. lol.

Looks and sounds like a wonderful retreat.

I had never thought to leave the wrapper on the soap ... that would make it less messy. It's really difficult for me throw out the end of soap pieces. They come in so handy ... especially lubricating pins and needles and marking dark fabrics. Now I'll have to add a new bar still in its package to my sewing basket.
