    heh heh thanks...the tips about measuring from the centre of the quilt are really good, so thanks for that. I just cut the width I wanted then sewed them in place-any left over was trimmed...but thinking about it I may have not cut them with and against the grain- you know two lenghts with and two lengths against the grain, well thats what it told me in the book I read,to keep the quilt rigid I think- but I may have had a senior moment and forgot and just did them all the one way...oops. I used double binding all the way round.
    I really loved the comments about DH- yes agree, they dont have to know everything!!

    Pat- just saw the link you posted up...OMG I thought that was so true!!! I am not that bad yet...but give me time!

    You know my favorite thing is putting the colours together which I love- I could spend hours laying them all out and moving them around..I have to work on my making up though-I absolutely hate ripping seams which happens regularly and keeping measurements exact too is very hard!!

    BTW, don't worry about DH and your stash. Here is a video with some nice tips on that subject.http://youtu.be/OKiiOH5oJfs

    That quilt is so pretty it is sure to lure your kids into wanting to give you grandchildren! 6 months at quilting!? And you are so advanced! That buckling you wrote about is very mild and I would not have noticed it. Hope we get to see more great quilts from you.
