    The formula for this method: (Finished size of HST x 2) + 2 (1 7/8 if you're perfect). For instance, for 2" hst cut (2 x 2)+2 =6" squares of both fabrics right sides facing.

Sew 1/4 on each side of diagonals ONLY, not the cross connecting the side centers, CUT along ALL lines(center and diagonal. Makes 8 , trim to unfinished 2 1/2"[/QUOTE]

    I finally have my first border cut for my "Rick Rack Nines" quilt - once it is on I will be looking for an outside border - not sure what will look good on this scrappy quilt - will have to check my stash first to see if there is anything in there big enough - the border is cut 5" (I think) and the quilt is almost 100" square.

    I put the binding and hanging sleeve on my "Blue Fish Wall Hanging" this morning. Now to sew them down. This quilt will hang in ...
