    Angry What I learned today !!!!

    Don't ask your know it all husband to help with math if he doesn't understand how to construct a quilt. Next time I'll try harder to figure it out myself!!!

    I am math challenged and my husband is a math whiz. I always figure out my own math, no matter how loooong it takes me because he doesn't understand quilting either. He is a great help when I want to square my quilt before doing the binding. I hope you can selvage your creation!

    I learned the hard way also, I was squaring up a king size quilt, my husband is a construction worker, specifically ceilings (acoustical shouldn't be too much different than a quilt, right?), I asked him to help me, so what does he do, he comes over and pulls on a corner and says that should do it, I thanked him, started laughing and actually squared it up myself.

    I have the Quilter's FabriCalc. Answers whatever questions I have for measuring. The person who invented this is a genius. Edie

    DH was telling me about the app he found for his smart phone for figuring wood for his projects. I wished out loud that there was one for figuring fabric. Within a few minutes he found one for and added it to my phone. It is so helpful!
