    Re: Help! Math challenged

    If I'm doing the math right, the 5" charm pack square will finish at 4.5" on point. That means that the corner HSTs will have to finish at 1 5/8" inches, which would mean that you would cut the...
  2. Re: Coin Quilt with Pizziaz - block sizing help

    You will need to cut them into 6 1/2 inch segments! That will give you an 8 inch square block when finished (8 1/2 unfinished).

    Re: pieced row

    7-8 fat quarters will suffice for the whole quilt. I would go with eight to give a wider variety of fabrics.

    Re: JUst can't make this work!

    I see what you mean. When I think about how I would cut it (see diagram above), it means using all of the 18". Fat quarters, though, often either shrink when washed or are cut slightly...
  6. Re: Square In A Square Pattern (AKA Square Dance)

    From what I remember, you will need to cut two extra jelly roll strips from your border fabric to include with the original 40, because you need 1 jelly roll strip per block. You will be fine with...
  7. Re: Question about 2 1/2 " strips ( cut from layer cake squares)

    Think of it as a 1:1 ratio. If you started out with 20 layer cake squares, you can make 20 blocks. For a queen-sized quilt made up of the 8" finished blocks, 120 blocks will make 10x12 (80" x 96"...

    Re: Can I get help making sense of this?

    Please be careful with the setting triangles! The way the pattern is written, I believe you will end up with bias edges all around the outside of the quilt (can someone double-check this?). I...

    Re: Boarder

    If you're talking about the Half Square Triangle quilt using the Four Seasons block, that 1-1/2 yards should be the outer border. You only need a 1/2 yard for the inner border. The outer border...
  12. Re: Changing size of disappearing pinwheel

    When you use the 10" squares, the pinwheel ends up being about 12-3/4" square. The 2-1/8" measurement is one sixth of the block size. When you use the 8" squares, take the block size of the...

    Re: Under the Stars - What Color Thread?

    Thanks all! I am very happy with it. I've never entered a quilt in a show before, but my LQS is going to borrow this as a shop sample. When I get it back, I will definitely hang it in my classroom...

    Re: Under the Stars - What Color Thread?

    Finally quilted and bound. I went with a medium to dark grey thread and bought a purple batik wide back from M*. The lighting on this pic wasn't the best, but I love how it turned out!!

    Re: Enough for a King Size?

    I don't think you have enough for a king... here's a link to a calculator, and for a large quilt like that, I think you would need at least six yards light and six yards dark.

  16. Re: How do you store opened left over jelly roll strips?

    I've seen a quilter store extra JR strips on a hanger. They're easily visible and you don't have to worry about wrinkles! If and when I ever have a dedicated sewing room, that is what I plan to do...

    Under the Stars - What Color Thread?

    My Under the Stars quilt top is almost finished, and will have a plain black border to match the stars. The 880 snowballs didn't take as long as I thought they would :icon_happy:

    Lesley,

    In just looking at the math, I think the triangles are perhaps a bit too large. The measurements for the rectangle and square do work out for matching up with the blocks, so I wouldn't...
