  3. 5 minute blocks

    by , 04-01-2013 at 06:42 AM
    Hi
    I am looking for dimensions for the 5 minute blocks made by Suzanne of design originals. I do know you have to make the middle one 1/4" wider or the v is not the right size when open, she said she uses 10 ", is that when finished or before she cuts. I hope someone has the sizes of the 3 materials.
    Thanks

  4. question

    by , 04-01-2013 at 03:06 AM
    I am looking for a pattern of a picture I downloaded sometime in the past few months. The quilt was called Jungle Stars and was featured in Quick and Easy Quilting Magazine, June 2002, Vol 24. I have only been quilting for 8 months. Have no clue where I got this. I downloaded it from somewhere. I googled with no success. Anyone with a link, could you share?

    Hi everyone:

    I am in a quandery. I have a quilt "business". What we do is create quilt kits (fabric choices) out of our extensive inventory of fabric which comes our way by thrift shops, quilt shops, fabric shops on-line, and the majority through quilter's stashes-Buy-outs...I keep costs down in order to expose more people to the hobby.

    Up till this point, I have only done quilt shows. Several people wanted me to put my one of a kind kits on-line to purchase. ...
