Treasure Boxes - cutting

Pin It
It's still Friday where I am!

What a week!

Harvest started this week... 'nuff said.  Good news is that it's the last crazy/busy season of the year, so I just have to make it until a little in to November.

Here are the cutting instructions for the Treasure Boxes Quilt Along.
This is our "assignment" for this week. :)  Add your pictures of your fabric!

Here is a pdf of the cutting instructions.
*Please note: you can cut your squares at 8 7/8" instead of 9" if you prefer not to trim when done.

I hope these directions are pretty clear!  When I'm done with the Quilt along posts, I'm going to compile the graphics/pages in to a pattern that will be for sale with all proceeds to benefit Quilt Hope In.  So if you think you might want this pattern -- save/copy the file now. :)

And so this post isn't left without a pretty picture --

The little etsy shop Quilt Hope In had its first sale since re-opening.  I listed this little color wheel dresden I made; it sold and shipped off this week. yea!

If you would like to list something, email me with pictures, the price and all that jazz.  The payment goes directly to Heartline, so if you need compensation for shipping, please make sure to let me know, so an arrangement can be made with the buyer aside from their payment.


Anyway -- I gotta go to bed.

Much love to you all.

And I'm praying I adjust to the hubs working a lot again soon... quality time is my main love language, and I miss that big hunk... *sigh*  At least I'm not 37+ weeks pregnant or caring for a newborn this year... so there's that...

I am planning to participate in this quilt along. I don't have my background fabric yet. (hopefully tomorrow).
I want to make sure I am reading the directions correctly.
From the background we need a 24- 9 inch squares.
From each fat quarter we need 2 - 9 inch squares and 4 - 4.5 inch squares.

I will post a picture of my fabric as soon as I figure our how to do that.

I am participating and will donate one to my charity St. John's Hospital Baby Unit for the Christmas Baby this year. I cannot get the link to load on my site, it says "page not found" Let me know when it is fixed and I will add the button. Thanks

I plan on participating. I have been holding on to a package of Cottage Garden by Jill Gordon fat quarters that I think will work up beautifully for this project.
