My husband and I share a room for our hobbies and I have removed almost all my quilting stuff from the room and we started pulling his stuff out too ... new carpet and paint, then back it all goes ... maybe ... I am wondering where I am going to end up with all my stuff ... right now it is stacked all over the family room and my longarm ... they will be here on Monday to measure for carpet and then it's just a matter of time for it to be ordered and installed ... plenty of work to do before then

yeah it worked!!! Ok this is what you end up with after cutting all around now turn all you have to do is turn the pieces and sew together!

Thank you. The waller hanger came from "Connecting Threads". You can order on-line.

Even blogs about quilting, which ones are the best?

I am so sorry that you have this problem and am hoping that you can restore it.
Thank you Dakota Girl, Yes, I
I went to a local quilt show and they had this block as a demontration you made a 4 patch block and then cut 1 1/2 inch from seam on both sides and then you rearranged the cut pieces and made a quilt and now I can't remember how to put it back together. Shirley
