  1. Re: Make a "Summer School" Quilt with Jenny!

    I was thinking the same about instead of the setting triangles for each block, use larger setting triangles at the end of rows.

    I keep telling my school aged kids to take what they knew and applied it to stuff they do not know to help them remember. Thanks for this post! Congratulations on your accomplishment! Now, for me to...

    Re: Half-Square Triangle question

    I have a lot of sleepless nights, and that's why I took up quilting. It gives me something to do while everyone else is trying to sleep. My Mom was a night owl, and took that time to do vacuuming, ...

    I made a weird log cabin for a baby quilt. I used my seam ripper a lot on this one, but it still was not show worthy. It was loved by the recipients, though.
  6. Re: What have you purchased that you never use or would never buy again?

    If any one has a Super Sidekick Ruler they are not using and will be willing to sell, I am interested in buying. I am going to try the Boomerang quilt when I get done with my Blue Spice Market quilt....

  8. Re: quilt looked better in my imagination than in real life

    I think it is a happy quilt. If it were mine, I would add a solid color border all around it. That would provide a good background to rest the eyes.

    Re: I need advise...

    Haha..you are so right. I think that's why I was upset. The parameters of the class changed after I bought all the fabric. Thankfully, there is a guild close to me and I'm so happy for the offer to...

    Re: I need advise...

    The issue is that I paid for 2 months of classes. May 6th is the last of my 2 hour class. I can't afford another month. Although I have perfected making the block, I still would need an entire 2 hour...

    Re: Morse Code Quilt Finished

    I found the pattern for this Morse Code quilt. In the original, the remaining 21 jelly roll strips were used as a border. I like the way you used yardage for the border. It really set off the center...

    Re: Why did this happen?

    My grandmother's quilts were made with clothing. Usually they were made with smaller cuts of fabric. Her larger pieces were loose before basting, but after basting the quilt tightened up a bit. Have...

    Hello from Alabama. A quick and easy jelly roll pattern would be to cut the strips into three different lengths and sew them together, sort of like a scrappy jelly roll race.
