week 9 report: 3 twin tops done!

Wowzers, the Young Women came and worked hard on Wednesday night.  They finished the necessary nine patches for 3 twin quilts.  They learned what a 1/4" seam is (and isn't.)  They are starting to see the colors working together and how the patch layout changes the final quilt.  They, also, learned the difference between pressing and ironing.  

I am Pressing!

What's the big deal about this 1/4" seam thang????

I cut, rotated, re-stitched into Disappearing Nine Patches and voila.  We are almost there.  I need to make the sassy backs and get down to FMQing!
But all said and done:  21yds minimum out!  but oh, oh... 8 yds and 2 jelly rolls in. Does it matter that it is the darling Central Park collection?  Let me answer that for you:  yes, that collection is worth the IN amount.
