the thread I read the other night about the fabric bowls. Someone had made some from 12 inch squares quilted together and tied with ribbon. I asked a question of her and now I can't find the post. Anyone know which one it was? Glad it's only Monday once a week! LOL Thanks for your help.

Is this any good to you?,1789,HGTV_3302_2758344,00.html

The kind I think you are talking about would have a square base, say 9" by 9" with 4 rectangles (9" by 3") attached to each of the edges of this square and ribbons attached to each of the remaining free corners of the rectangles which would then tie up to make the box. I would suggest piecing two of these shapes(squares + rectangles) and then sewing them together right sides facing leaving a complete side open for turning. Then measure your finished item and cut 5 pieces of cardboard(4 rectangles and 1 square) 1/2" smaller than your finished pieced section. Slide the card inplace throught he open side and then topsitch along the edge of the square avoiding catching the card. Slip stitch the opening closed and attach ribbon. This would not of course be waterproof or washable - someone else may help with that.
love and kisses, Jan

Hi Lyn,

Click on User CP, above. On the lefthand side of the screen you will see a box with various listings.

Look under 'Subscribed Threads", then click on 'List subscriptions'. This should give you a clickable list of all the threads where you have posted messages. Perhaps you will recognize the name of the thread when you see it.

Hope this helps.
Take care,
