Very cool app

Wow! I can't believe I am blogging twice in one week. I just have to share the app I found yesterday. First of all, I love technology. My middle son got me hooked on computers way back in 1995. We bought one from Staples, paid more than you would for an I Pad today but loved it and it worked great for years. I now have a laptop, an I Pod touch and a Blackberry!

Anyway I was looking at apps for the Touch, which is my favorite! I found this amazing quilt app, called BlockFab and it is free. I can't even begin to describe all the things you can do with it. You could play with it for hours. You choose a block and then it pictures it in multiple ways and colors. You can also combine the block you chose with any other block and see what it would look like. Go check it out!!!

I had a wonderful day yesterday, no kids and no husband!! I brought my sewing machine down to the dining room and quilted these two. I didn't do anything fancy just parallel slanted lines. The first one is for the young woman that grew up in France with the fabric that Helen sent me. The other fabric on the back is some that by DIL brought me from her mother. It is perfect.

This is the quilt for my daughters friend whose son was born a few weeks ago in the Chinese year of the tiger. I have shown you this one before, actually I have shown both of these before. I call this one Tiger in the House. I am showing them to you again so you will see that sometimes I do finish a project. Well almost finish, I do have to do the binding.

One more thing, everyone seems to be into scraps these days. What do you suggest with this scrap? It is too big to throw away. Would you fussy cut the animals or ignore the print? Give me some creative ideas!
I have more if someone could use it.

Scampering to go check out the app. OMG, I LOVE my Ipod3 Touch. My dh loved mine so much he went out and bought the Ipod4! We're really nerds, lol.

I just have a pay-as-you-go cell phone. I'm not out of the house enough to use the fancy kind. I love your quilts. That scrap is too big to toss--I just make free-pieced blocks to use up stuff like that.
