    Eddie, I was amazed that you did quilting to start out with and now to find out you're doing a tutorial for a CW, blows me away. It's great. I'll be with you every step of the way. I did a CW pillow but I have never attempted to do a quilt. I didn't know this could be done on the sewing machine. My mother-in-law made a CW quilt but she did it all by hand.I'm interested in how it's done by machine ,so I can do one myself. Thanks bunches for doing this. I'm an old gal but I can still learn something new.

    It depends on the size of your finished blocks since smaller blocks will take more material. But assuming a 4" finished size block and a twin size of 60" x 80", the math works out like this:

    60" quilt width / 4" block size = 15 block width
    80" quilt length / 4" block size = 20 block length
    15 block width x 20 block length = 300 blocks

    Using an 8.75" raw block size to make those 4" blocks, you can get 5 blocks from a single cut width of fabric (WOF).

    300 blocks / 5 per WOF strip = 60 WOF strips needed
    60 WOF strips * 8.75" each = 525 linear inches of fabric needed
    525" of fabric / 36" per yard = 14.58 yards of fabric

    So about 15 yards of background fabric for a twin size quilt.

    You did a great job and your instructions are very well done. I like to be shown how to do things and that was great. Maybe I will try that in a couple of months I got a few other things to do first. Thanks again. Dee

    That is absolutely fabulous. I've always thought these would be too difficult to accomplish; they are so beautiful. Your tut is so clear and understandable! Thanks for all the pics; they help soo much. Beautiful choice of colors. Maybe I'll try a small one for a table topper or even some placemats; wouldn't those be beautiful?!?

    May I add my thanks as well!

    I had started a cathedral window table runner out of Christmas fabric back before our house burned several years ago. Had almost forgotten how gorgeous I thought that pattern was, as well as any idea of how to do it. Must have had some sort of instructions at the time...But yours are sooooo clear and simple.

    Will definitely put one of these on my must-do list. Might be just the way to showcase my stash of 70's brights that I've been trying to figure out what pattern to go with.

    I am taking a class now and really enjoying this. Main thing is to keep your points sharp.

    For the triangles around the edge, you just leave those loose so that you can add more rows. When you finally get it as large as you want, then you tack those down and can leave it like that, or roll the edges and put a window glass right up to the edge as well.

    I, too, was wondering where the "curve" came from!

    Thanks Eddie! My mother made a CW pillow she always said she would teach me to make one but she passedaway before she was able to teach me, you don't know how much this means to me. I just hope I can do it, your directions are really great! If I have trouble can I ask you for help? Thanks

    Sure, ask away!
