The bottom ones are folded just the opposite: bottom right to top left.
Fold the top square from the top right to the bottom left just to the stitching line. I actually did these on the ironing board so I could press them as I folded each one.
After getting back from a great trip to Phoenix(loved the 35th Ave Sewing/Vacumn store--the one on 35th Av! Tons of fabrics and the folks at 3 Dudes were so nice and friendly) realized I have so much to get done before mid-May. So really hustled and had the customer graduation T-shirt quilt put together--just need to finish backing and put on the frame. I also got the 2 grandboys play mates quilted and now need to get the bias binding (they are circular) done for Easter. Have 29"corn heat/cold"packs
I need help with this pattern. The butterfly is made up of different blocks. I want to make all the blocks but I don't want to put them in the butterfly shape. Any suggestions?
Do anyone have a pattern for and 8 1/2 block of Ohio Star?
I have been looking for this fabric for a while now.
I thought it was called "Santa's Beard," but it is not that fabric.
It is called "YULETIDE" by Jinny Beyer.
I will buy whatever you have of this fabric if you have it.
Please see attachment of fabric needed.
Thank you so much!

My pattern says cut 1 5/8 squares. So I would cut stips at 1 5/8th or bigger? They have to measure 1 5/8 when done. Also you mean when u press the stirps the seams are open not together going one way? thanks for advice and tutorial!

Next time I must start with buying the key fabric. I started with buying what was on clearance and fit my concept and I realized that I still needed a specific leaf fabric, but now I needed it in a certain shade of green to make the color blend smoothly.
So after a frustrating trip two two fabric stores that claim to be the biggest in the nation I realized I was hunting for a fabric that didn't exist and bought 3 cuts that blended the colors and while neither was perfect all three together
Just joined so I'm new to this! Does anyone have any idea if I can use my little gracie 2 frame with an artistic 18 longarm? I can't find much about compatible frames for this machine.
