    Or add other elements besides the 2.5" squares. One example is combining a 16-patch block of 2.5" squares with a pinwheel block. Another example is combining a 25-
  3. Attic Windows ruler

    Hello to the most knowledgeable and up-to-date quilting friends.
    So, I have been thinking about making an attic window quilt. There is a ruler out there that can help in creating this project. There are not many reviews on it. The videos show that it creates a pocket which I do not want. They do say it can be sewn down. But there are no details on that part or how it would look.
    I have also seen where you can make a half square triangle for the corner. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!! ...

  6. My first quilt - need border help

    by , 08-16-2016 at 03:14 PM
    Hello, I have been looking for somewhere to get quilting advice and this looks like a great place! I am also looking to join a local quilting club, but for now, here goes. This is my first full sized quilt and I plan on machine quilting. My challenge is the border. I need to be about 10 inches longer all the way around to fit my extra deep queen sized mattress. I purchased some dark blue fabric which matches the background of the print, but it is just not doing it for me. I have been searching ...

  8. How to remove pencil marks from cotton quilts

    by , 08-12-2016 at 07:09 PM
    I love to mark my quilts with pencil marks. The lines are thin as thread which keeps my quilting accurate. Blue, or colored markers are often thicker and can wash into the batting. Pencil marks come out easily, even when I get a little heavy handed. I made a sample to show how I do it:

    Here are pencil marks on white cotton:

  10. Can anyone Help me

    by , 08-05-2016 at 08:34 AM
    I wish I could get my back my mojo. I have not quilted in almost a year my husband has Alzheimer's and takes so much of my time and very happy that I can be there for him. I can no longer work as he needs care and even to have a few minutes to quilt would be a welcome blessing. When I do I am just to tired or not interested. Can any of you ladies relate and give me pointers on how to get back to the one thing that gives me solace.
