Did also get the B&White quilt ready to bind. Isn't it great when you think, "Ahhh, only one more block to quilt", then you look again and it was done! They are all done!
    Enjoy your day!

    Just came by to see if blogs are up and working. I think so. I'll figure it out by looking at the others. The only thing I saw was the pages wouldn't change from 1 to 2.
    Hope to see more people I know here.
    I have been in and out and enjoy visiting still.
    The pda's was the only reason I went somewhere else to journal.
    This board is great, as long as I don't get in trouble or let my flying monkeys out and that hasn't happened in forever,.

  6. ATTACHING THE UNITS Part II

Make sure all your edges line up.

So I figured if I went a head an squared up the block to match the other blocks at 12.5 I would be ok. Now I had about a 1/4 of an inch batting showing all the way around a few places a tad bit more in

  8. Longarm quilting question

I just make sure it is straight with the sides every time I roll it and that works for me.

This basting stich is done with the channel lock on to give a true straight line of stitching. I then lay the quilt's top
