  4. Attic Windows ruler

    Hello to the most knowledgeable and up-to-date quilting friends.
    So, I have been thinking about making an attic window quilt. There is a ruler out there that can help in creating this project. There are not many reviews on it. The videos show that it creates a pocket which I do not want. They do say it can be sewn down. But there are no details on that part or how it would look.
    I have also seen where you can make a half square triangle for the corner. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!! ...

  8. My first quilt - need border help

    by , 08-16-2016 at 03:14 PM
    Hello, I have been looking for somewhere to get quilting advice and this looks like a great place! I am also looking to join a local quilting club, but for now, here goes. This is my first full sized quilt and I plan on machine quilting. My challenge is the border. I need to be about 10 inches longer all the way around to fit my extra deep queen sized mattress.

  10. How to remove pencil marks from cotton quilts
