    Re: Opinions please?

    Bias binding shouldn't be any more difficult than straight binding. It might take a bit more fabric though.

    Re: Quilting

  7. Re: Make a "Building Blocks" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    It bothered me, too. I would have to add some coordinating fabric so that the left and bottom would have sashing as well. I do really like the fabric she used, such a cuddly looking quilt.

    Will you have a place to prop a ladder ? That always looks like a good display to me.

    Glad to hear that so far it is gusty rain and wind, not destruction. Keep being safe.

  14. Re: BEGINNER QUILTING - SHOULD YOU PREWASH YOUR FABRIC? Part 1 - SHRINKAGE...THE WHEN AND WHY

    Re: Tuesday hellos!!

    Thanks everyone, I was a bit unsure since the 4 patches don't really match the butterfly blocks. I need to do the backing today so when the batting is delivered I can get right to quilting it.
