    The control valve went out on my hot water heater last night. DH is replacin' the whole hot water heater tanight. We will never buy a Whirlpool (sp?) again. This is the second one in 2 years. At least it didn't burst!
    How awful that you have had to replace your water heater so soon.. I thought those things were suppose to last like ten to twenty years? Its awesome that your DH has the skills to install the new one, otherwise I can imagine the cost would be horrible.
    Have an awesome day!

    Jenniky - this is an interesting method but I think I'm a bit confused (my brain - not your instructions). Let me see if I understand .....

    These connecting strips / sashing are wider than a typical sashing (say more than inch or so). Because of this, I need to "create" a quilt sandwich section.

    I attach the front sashing and the back sashing like the 1st method. Where I got confused -- is the back piece folded like the 1st method than stitched down? if so, is the folding really necessary? or can I just fold over a small section to create the finished edge. After that, I do the quilting on that small sashing section?

    I'll have to try this on a scrap and see if I'm understanding it but my brain just isn't processing it. That's the problem with fibro - it messes with the processing center of the brain. Learning something new is VERY hard but once I've learned it, I never forget. Weird, huh?

    dublib - sorry to hear of your heater issue. We are dealing with the same thing. Ours started leaking (apparently for a while) but didn't realize it until a couple days ago. Now, we're dealing with the moisture people, plumber, carpenter (to replace the rotted board (which is why we think it had been leaking a while), AND the insurance adjuster.

    Feel for ya !! Wish hubby was still healthy (has severe COPD) so he could do the job and save us a ton of money.

    And, like you, we went through this 5 years ago this month. Thought we wouldn't have to deal with this problem so soon.

    Ok, I copied the instructions into Word so I can print out and keep in a binder. While going through it again, it made more sense. But I'm still curious about folding the back sashing piece in half and if it is really necessary.

    I need to find one of those little glue bottles.

    Well, I have not worked on my sister's surprise in a couple of days, but it is better than half done and I have 3 months until Christmas so there is no problem. I have actually been making Christmas bags, and reading Nancy Drew. Since I am going through my second childhood, I figure I can get away with it.

    Hello Ladies, I finished up the reversible table topper this morning. Hubby just finished cleaning the garage so we are going out for a late lunch. I will post the last part of the tutorial when I come back. Vicki in answer to your question. Yes you do not have to use a complete fold if you would like to save on material. The way I did it was based on the formula I am using to figure out my sashing size and its just a whole lot easier for me. I dont have to mess with perfecting my fold under seams.. Thats just me. Other than the basting I did everything on the machine. Including both sides of the binding. Here are the finished pictures... bbl after lunch with the tute.

    Pin the front sashing onto the front side with right sides together. Pin the back folded sashing to the back side raw edges together. Then sew a 1/4" seam.

    Measure your sashing ditch. As you did on the vertical sashings. Cut your batting piece to fit in the canal.

    Make sure there is no bunching and then baste down both sides of batting to keep it from sliding in the canal.

    Conclusion in the next post.

    Thanks, Vicki...Sorry you're having problems. I, also, have fibro and know how it feels. I've really enjoyed learning this QAYG method. I've just been so busy and have a lot to catch up on. Hope you feel better.

    As we did with the vertical sashings we now run a thin line of glue to hold the
    back sashing flap in place while we flip it over and sew it closed from the front side sashing .
    Below is the finished front side and Back side of the Topper.

    Formula for figuring your front and back sashings. (This is only if you are using the folding method. )

    [ Final width of Sashing ] + [ 1/2"] = Width of top Sashing.

    [ Final width of Top Sashing * 2 ] + [ 3/4"] = Width to cut back Sashing.
    Have an awesome day!
