  • Stop rulers from Slipping

    I spritz a little of the spray on basting, let it dry a couple of seconds and my rulers don't slip on the fabric. If you want to clean it up after you are done - Goo Gone does it great.

    How do I figure out the size of "Delectable Mountain" block I would need to go around a border? (64x64) Also, once the finished size is figured out - how do I figure the size of the HSTs? Any help would be appreciated.
