Kind of isolated where I am so give me a shout out soon.
Hugs to you all.

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.
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?
My first lap quilt; beginner quilter.
Well almost done with the house, just have one cupboard to have put in and all the doors on them then done for a while. Will be so nice after a year of having contractors in and out to have the house to ourselves.
I have some updates as to my sewing room, I now have 4 lovely 221's,
#1, Zelenka (little green one) she is a shimmering green, 2-27-47
#2 Keaira (little dark one) she is black 6-18-48
#3 Brigit she is a lovely shimmering blue 5-4-53
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.

There are a couple of key factors that I LOVE about this method of basting:
1. There is NO crawling around

Elmer's Washable School by the gallon is $14.00 - cheap I should be able to do at least 18 quilts with a gallon of glue vs 505 in the red can $13.00 a can and I can get maybe 3 quilts per can.
Read on and see if this method is for you.
First, I put my Warm and Natural Batting in the dryer for a bit to try and soften the wrinkles. The I spread it out on my ping pong table (we
