  • Re: June Tailor: Shape Cut Ruler Amazing

    I have had the 1/4 shape cutter for many years and never really used it. When I began Bonnie's MQ - Orca Bay - I decided it would be easy to cut the strips, since I had no scraps. I had a rotary cutter(45mm)that had a shield so that when you cut with it the shield would move up to expose the blade. Bad choice!....... I had so much trouble with the

    @ Spudgrandma - I thought I would use it for piecing as regular thread seems to be too "thick" and causes loss of seam allowance. Someone mentioned Aurifil and I saw SULKY at Jo-Ann's, was on my way out and just grabbed it. It is so thin, I figured my seams would be better. ETA: Why do we earn points? Are they used for anything besides

    I recently purchased spool of SULKY 100% rayon. It is 1500 yds big and I paid $10.99. Was that too much, and is rayon okay?

    Marsha - What is the width of your sashing in the first quilt? I'm making one of my own design and I think my sashing is too wide. My blocks are 9x9 and 9x18. Thought 4 1/2" wide sashing was okay but find them too wide. Any suggestions for width?

    I don't see any paperclips but I do see the female symbol under each of our icons . [quote user="Carol"] [quote user="Cindy"] made all 350 HST blocks too small by 1/2 inch[/quote] How maddening! How did that happen? Sorry, now that you've "practiced" the new ones should turn out great, and quickly, huh? We laugh

    I just got my computer back after 2 weeks without it. Now I've decided to make a quilt for a friend's husband who will be going to a hospice. He has stage 4 prostate cancer. This is the pattern I have devised. The square blocks are 9x9 the double ones are 9x18. I thought the sashing would be 4 1/2 " but when I cut the squares I realized
