    Smile Tube Quilting - Clarification

    Good Morning MSQC!!

    Okay so I did your tube pillowcase tutorial, KNOWing it couldn't be that easy....and it WAS. Then I decided to try your Summer in the Park. Which I also made a tutorial for, for the site.

    Anyway....can we get a CLOSE UP picture on cutting. I realize that you line the 45 angle on your SEAM.....but I need a visual of once you make the first cut, how you line the ruler up to make the second cut. Because I'm afraid I might be placing it in the wrong spot.

    On my first tube all but 1 square were the same size, so I wanted to be sure I know how to line it up. Even if it's just a few pics it would be really appreciated! I have several tubes done for a United Way quilt I'm doinating to a silent auction....but want to be sure that I cut right so I don't lose any more blocks.

    Much love and THANK YOU for all of the tutorials!

    Michael, I'm glad you asked that question because I have worried over it too. My first tube was a disaster because I cut it incorrectly. So I'm eager to see any photos that can help
