    Hey! I'm pretty new to quilting but I just can't get enough of it. I think I have bought enough fabric for at least, the very least, 10 quilts, dust ruffles, curtains and shower curtains but I am having a ball. Sewing is all I want to do. Anyway, sorry for being so winded just excited I guess. So, hey again from Alabam. :mrgreen:

    Welcome from Minnesota, It's a good thing to get and stay excited, especially about quilting. I can never get enough of it myself.

    Sorry I was busy with something else. My question is: I am trying to make a twin size quilt in a stitch and flip pattern. I have only made a lap quilt size. I don't have a pattern for a twin. Do I just repeat the pattern once more or do I need to add more?

    I need to get my boyfriend to take a picture and put it on the computer. I'm a computer dummy but I will get him to. I've had a hard time trying to figure out how to get to where I am now.

    Plus how do I read what everyone posts on here? It seems to take a while for a response. It seems like when I go and do something else, on the computer for a while, and come back then I have a response. Am I doing something wrong or what?

    Depending on the size of the lap, you may need to add more than one just row. A twin should measure about 60X95. If you can add borders, that will increase the size and may be faster than adding rows.

    Do you know how to do a stitch and flip quilt? It is the easiest one to make or at least it seems that way to me. I have only made one but I had so much fun. I'm not a wonderful sewer but I think that I did okay. I figured out how to make my own binding on my own. I'm very proud of the quilt.

    That sounds like a good idea. I hadn't thought of that.
