So I figured if I went a head an squared up the block to match the other blocks at 12.5 I would be ok. Now I had about a 1/4 of an inch batting showing all the way around a few places a tad bit more in

  2. Longarm quilting question

I just make sure it is straight with the sides every time I roll it and that works for me.

Then I come down on the batting about one and one-half inch and run a basting stitch across the batting to hold it in place on the backing. This basting stich is done with the channel lock on to give a true straight line of stitching. I then lay the quilt's top

    It was called Nuance Tile 0431618B. It was deep wine/burgandy, black, white, soft blue, orange and green. I will need 2 1/2 yards to put a border onto the quilt I am making. Paula Nadelstern design.

  5. Where am I going wrong?

    by , 08-05-2012 at 09:04 AM
    Hello All,
    HELP!
    I am onto my 2nd quilt and I'm having difficulties getting my blocks and triangles to line/match up. I have been, I thought, extra carefull in the cutting of all my pieces but, when it comes to placing all the pieces together there is always something off kelter and doesn't fit correctly.
    I have looked at the pictures that have been posted and I'm very impressed and would love to make things that look as good as these.
    Can anyone give me any tips ...

  7. Make a sewing machine cover

    by , 08-05-2012 at 02:36 AM
    I really enjoy making sewing machine covers. They are fun, don't need a lot of fabric, and make great gifts, too.

    I posted pics and instructions in a web album. I'd post them all here, but the QB website has been giving me fits the last few days. So, I hope the link to my Picasa album works. Here it is:

  8. DISCUSSION QUESTION in POST #121

    Regarding the question about the block already quilted and would you use it in a quilt and cut it down or how would you solve the problem. I might make some smaller blocks to fill in so the other blocks would come out the same size as the larger block. Or cut the larger block down and stitch around the edge after it is cut. A third way would be to add borders to the smaller blocks so they were the same size as the bigger block.
