    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.
    Grab one

    My English is not too good but I will try .

    I did not use special rulers for this block. I had only a triangular ruler and usual square ruler at my order.
    I didi it anyway.

    However, my pictures are detailed so I hope you will understand all only on photos.

    All strips on pictures have width 1 1/2 inches, the size of squares is 4 inches.

  9. Quilt as You Go (QAYG)

    by , 07-27-2014 at 08:23 PM
    Hi there. There are so many different methods for QAYG - I used one method in this quilt but as I wanted to machine stitch it (rather than hand sew) this proved to be really challenging lining up not just each block horizontally and vertically but (what you can't see) is that I had cornerstones where each block met. So challenging! Some u tube video tutorials suggest making a rig so you can ensure really accurate seams (together with glue) to help with accuracy. But most just use handsewing. ...

  10. Machine sewing binding

When you fold the binding over to the other side, gently iron it down on that side of the quilt. Voila! No pins, no basting, and best of all, no moving! I attach all this with the back of the quilt up, then fold to the front
