is there another way to square up a block? I don't have a sq ruler over 15" but my blocks are all over 16"+ I'd like to try to square these up.
I am making my first attempt at a purse for my daughter's Mother's day gift. Didn't use a pattern, has a zippered pocket and one open pocket inside the lining. Anyone have any advice for putting on the top zipper and attaching the lining. No sure how to go about it, I have the zipper sewn into the top, do I sew the ends up on the zipper piece first?? Then attached to top of purse?
have just completed my first ever quilt and am pretty chuffed. Can anyone tell if you are supposed to wash a newly made quilt if you have used fusible wadding to get rid of the sticky stuff?
Today on my I phone had a offer for a year of QNNtv,com for 12months for $12.Great deal I thought but it has strings somehow you are signed in to paypal and you have 2 charges one for $12 and another for $24 every year starting in 2014 for an indefinite time. I went back to the offer and there is no clue you are signing up for every year. So paypal said to sign back in and cancel the $24 reacquiring charge. This kind of business puts a sour taste on ever doing future business with either company.

Here's a picture of the purse I am trying to make, also I have FMQ into all the square on this quilt, now I am trying to figure out what to stitch into the frames around the squares. How do you think it would look to stitch straight lines perpendicular to the frames?

I started a purse to give for Mother's day, I was able to apply some naugahyde to the side, but when I tried to sew two pieces together, the sewing machine gets stuck and drags and stretches the fabric. Any suggestions? I am using my old Singer 15-91, and a size 14 needle. I will post a pic next.

Has anyone bought anything from Gata Grama website? I order a quilt pattern from them about three weeks ago and haven't received it yet or given a download.
I goofed, here's the front of the t-shirt
