Now this was fun!! I got the Mason Dixon book from the library and saw this and had to try it. It's so easy and what a great way to use up stash scraps!

That looks sooo cool, Jan!! Could you continue on with it and make it bigger? I want to try that!!

Very nice! I made a bathroom rug from that book...log cabin style. It's a fun, easy pattern!

I love what you made though! Very cute pattern for a dishcloth!

Definitely! You can make each section as large or small as you want, too. I also wove in the ends as I went along so I didn't have many of those to do either. Whew! See if your library has the book, it's pretty neat!

That looks great! I'm on my way to check my library on-line to see if they have the book.....

Is this the book?? If so, I just reserved it from my library and am first in line whenever a copy becomes available. Yay! I love something new.

Yes, that's it! Lots of neat stuff in it and some funny and interesting things as well. :teehee: I'm making another square with some random blues and multi that I have. I'm making these as squares to give to Sandy for the charity blankets. We do the squares..she gets the fun of sewing them together. :teehee:

That is so cool!

Is that book worth buying? I'm making a list of ones that I'd like for Christmas....

I have that book and I LOVE it. I would definitely recommend buying it. The patterns are so original and it's a really fun read too. I tried the whole log cabin thing with my scraps of Manos. I was going to make a log cabin style block and then felt it, just to see how it turned out...but I messed up the log cabin somewhere and frogged it. This makes me want to try again though!

I took the MD book out of my local library and hated having to return it. Lots of great stuff!
