  1. Pre-cuts...HELP!

    by , 10-21-2012 at 10:44 AM
    I would appreciate any feedback on the pre-cuts that have the zig-zag edge finish. Where do you begin measuring for the 1/4 inch sewing line? From the "point" of the zig zag or the "valley"?

    Here' my problem:
    Charm packs are supposed to be 5x5". If your pattern requires 2 1/2 x 5 inch strips, then you simply cut it in half. Seems simple enough. But sewing the 1/4 inch seam on the zig-zag edge when measuring from the "point" doesn't appear ...

  3. Removing blue embroidery block spots

    by , 10-20-2012 at 09:04 AM
    Does anyone know how to remove blue "runs" from a quilt block? My Mother did the blocks and spilled a little water on a few spots and of course the blue dye ran and it is now discolored. I've tried a Tide pen, but it still shows. Any other ideas out there? Thanks, Alice

    I made a table runner and the three center squares are a little big and look wrinkled when I lay it out. Do you think if I quilted an x in the block it would help? I am at a loss as to how to fix this. nancyjean59

    FYI: I had to make it smaller but did not want to exclude any logs.I felt that it took away from the design. Instead I cut the strips ⅛" narrower than specified and sewed the seams a full ".
