    I hope the file opens for you all, if not can someone please compress it further if possible Oh Patrice....... :roll: :lol: :D
    Thankyou so much Izy for your tutorial it has helped to improve my skills, i was using a similar method but not butting up as you have shown. May I suggest tha you sign your tutorials so that in the future one knows whose interlectual property it is. As a Qualified Trainer and Assesser I always sign my tutorials and suggest that my students do the same. I tahnkyou once again for your kindness in sharing.

    Thank you Sandi-Lou, it is a fair point, but as a 'novice tutorialist' for the Quilting Board I presumed everyone would know it was mine through the topic

    Thanks Rebecca, yes it IS easy, if you butt right up close so there isn't even a stitch length between them you CAN'T mess up! I don't even pin now ...no need!

    His grace it looks to me as if the bottom one is slightly smaller than the one above. Look at the white fabric where it meets the dark brown triangle they are off . Centre is correct . Undo seam by white triangle and you need a scant 1/4 inch try 2 or3 threads on each side only. Good luck.
    Finished is better than a UFO
