Thank you for the quick reply. I have no picture except in my head - I said this one is simple. We'll just wing it together. I have very little quilting experience - 1 1/2 years - but I'm brave around a SM, so I 'm not worried. I have done three on point quilts, so I understand the concept. My first quilt was on point with partial seams.:rolleyes:
Have a wonderful evening Ladies... Oh and In the spirit of the olympics and an inspiration to start in. Im giving a honorary virtual gold, silver, and bronze medals to the first three who post their orphaned blocks sandwiched and ready for the next step. I wonder will it be USA or Canucks or one of our other international friends. :thumbup:
Sunliten you definitely get an honorable mention though for posting the first completed sandwiches even if they have been sitting around 20 years.. LOL :D It will be awesome to see it finally completed :thumbup:
A Special Welcome to fellow Canucks ... FranFoss and Chatonne40!!
Always good to have more Canadians here (and throughout the QB!)
SewExS ... Heck, I don't know .. just having fun with it, and seriously, not keeping count!
IMHO we're all in this together in Quiltdom and no International borders!!!
Sulky Basting Spray... have never heard of it.
Nor the Sullivan's that was mentioned.
Having a fibro week so haven't got a thing done, lol. Will hope to catch up asap tho. I'm following with the reading at least!
:( oh... I was relying on you... oh well! We'll have fun anyway.

I have two BOM's from last year that need to be quilted. This sounds like a great way to get that done and learn a new technique too. Thanks for doing this Jenniky!
I'm ready. Found ugly fabric squares to practice on. Everything sandwiched. Pics tp follow later.
I use the 505 and it doesn't take but a quick swipe for a single block.
You said to guess the next step, the method I'm using has me baste 1/2 inch around the block with washable thread on the top. It does keep things square and so far I like it.
I've looked at the current method you're using and I don't know how it would work with setting triangles. I'm planning to sew my on point blocks in a strip before I quilt. Also I'm wondering now you accommodate a wider sashing. Lots of questions....
BTW...I was raised in Washington state about 2 miles south of British Colombia. Lake Osoyoos was shared by both countries. Then it was so simple to cross the border and shop. Now it takes a passport!
I would love to be a part of this group. I have done quilt as you go, it was fun and I would love to learn more.
Fellow Fibro sufferer, feel better real soon. I seem to be dealing with more flareups this summer.
