Thanks so much! These pictures are great, as I am working on small squares like the one in the picture. This is an immense help to me. I'm excited :)

Havplenty, do you mind sharing how you did your pictures? They are very clear and the numerous pictures up-loaded to my dial-up very quickly. (camera, file size and format etc.)

Missouri Star Quilt has many tutorials - all wonderful. See: http://www.youtube.com/missouriquilt...69/ex2PajesRvU

I think this will answer your question.

there was a tutorial on the board that was so easy....using pins to mark where to join....I'll see if I can find it...it really made it easier for me to join...

Waist not Crotch? I don't get it....is it exactly like the above method or is it different? Thanks for your help.

these tutorials were ones i had saved in a word document. everything is copied and saved in word instead of uploaded. it makes it easier to deal with loading, processing time, etc. try it sometimes, you will see what i mean.

there are several ways to join the tails and various tutorials to show one how. i have made at least 50 sets of potholders this year and i practice various techniques on them such as seam joining, fmq, gluing binding, mitered corners, quilting stitching, etc. i have had plenty of practice so i am perfecting that skill. i would say research the various seam joining techniques and find one that works best for you. my mitered corners are turning out just about perfect (one may get outta whack every so often). practice makes perfect.

hutch farm find something small that you can work on (such as potholders, mug rugs) to help you find the technique that works best for you. then keep making them until you feel comfortable with your skill. browse online and find a few tutorials for information and to help you practice. you will be a pro in no time at all.
