    Re: cool quilt label idea.....

    Lovely idea. Another use for the selvedges. Don't think it was my idea - must have seen it somewhere but I like it, enjoyed making it and finding appropriate 'titles'

    So sad.

    Moda Bakeshop used to divide their free patterns according to the different pre-cuts. They seem to have altered their website since I used that option some time ago and I haven't been...

    Re: International Sisters Block Tutorial

    Can anyone tell me what that foot is he's using - I gather it's 1/4" but I'm used to the Janome one with the metal guide. I don't trust the guide (could it get bent) or is that just me sewing bad...

    Re: Pattern?

    Thanks Lorie - I think I might have saved it with some strange extension which has prevented it from being seen by everyone. Computers! - a blessing and a curse all in one!!!

    Pattern?

    I have a picture of this quilt and guess it is some sort of log cabin block but I can't find the EXACT same block - there are so many variations out there anyway. What I notice is that the...

    We have a new puppy - Fergus - he's gorgeous as you can see. We have a safety gate to stop him going UPSTAIRS but he can nudge it to get through. My daughter asked me to make some...

    Re: Looking for a 28mm olfa cutter

    I'm in the UK so checked Amazon here - it was there (and nowhere else) but 'currently unavailable' so I wonder if that means they've discontinued the one you're looking for. I would grab the ebay...

    I see what you're saying but my block is like the centre of Jacobs Ladder but with extra squares within the triangles - like these drawn in. Thinks I've got it now with the lavieenrosie link but...

    Many thanks Lyn - you solved it. I'd seen references to Lavieenrosie but couldn't get anywhere with a Google search - that's exactly it and there seems to be many ways to put the blocks together -...
