I've had this fantastic "free" pattern for a fabric wallet for months, but ithe measurements for the fabric is in centimeters instead of inches. I searched the internet for conversions and all. Well, just yesterday, I was making a purse and when I turned my measuring tape over...WOW!!! The centimeters are converted on the other side...my BIG AH HA!! Moment. STUPID ME!!
Now I can make that fabric wallet I've wanted for months!!
I see a lot of folks having issues posting pictures so I've made this little tut hoping it will help!
First of all you will need to click on settings at the right hand top of the screen.
Another window will open and you should see yellow tone area that says My Messages, My Subscription, My Settings, My Account...ect.

Well, I finished my DQ, but I'm not sending it anywhere! The machine quilting distorted the piecing, so it looks all wonky. Sigh. I may have to learn to work with the walking foot I have for my Singer, or break down and get one of my other machines out to use.

So I know where it is when I need it.
And more help on things like my account

I was asked a few days ago to think about writing a short writing about what quilting means to me, or what it has taught me, or how it has encourged me in the few years I have taught myself how to quilt.

Please forgive me if the pic's are not perfect. This is my first time doing a tutorial.
First of all I would like to say It is a MUST that you use 100% Cotten batting.( I used warm and Natural).
There are three sizes you can cut your fabric squares in:
1) !4" for round casserole dish
2) 12" for a medium casserole dish or larger bowl
3) 10"for a typical cereal bowl size.
Sorry if I've duplicated this. Don't think I correctly posted this or my photo before. I've accomplished my goal of creating my first quilt before our first snow storm hits. Yeah!
I'm disappointed with how small the avatars are on the left side of postings. They were so interesting to see in the past.
