  • Re: Vertical Fabric for the border.... A question

    Aha. Now I understand the question. My statement about making sure the top and bottom face the same direction is correct. Plants don't usually grow down from the sky (unless they're in a hanging basket) :) My decision for this fabric would be made by figuring out where the repeats are. If you're going to have to piece your top and bottom

  • Re: Vertical Fabric for the border.... A question

    I'm not sure if this really has anything to do with your question, but I decide based on how much fabric I have. If putting the sides on first means I have problems with my top and bottom fitting the fabric, I add the top and bottom first...and vice versa. I miter stripes, but scenics I don't... If it's scenic, I put the strip on so the

    The quilt is beautiful. Raw emotion takes many forms. There is no way to predict, but chances are he'll wrap his arms around it and cry. Your thoughtfulness will be treasured. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you in your loss. stitcheraz

    Not all precuts are exactly what they say. Measure your precuts from "valley to valley" (the innermost cut part of the pinking). Make sure they're the same and match your sashing length. If they don't, adjust your sashing length, lining up your cut edge with the "valleys" of the precut and sew a sashing strip to the left

  • Re: How to attach bordered blocks?

    Another suggestion showed up on one of my local quilt shop's website... If the blocks aren't the right size and they aren't square OR they're not square and too small, use "coping triangles". Add fabric rectangles or larger than needed triangles to the problem sides and trim down. You can end up with a "wonky" set

    Are they more than 12 1/2 inch or less? If they're more than 12 1/2 inch you can trim those down to 12 1/2 inch (to finish at 12). You can change out borders to get to a consistent size. You can add additional borders to the smaller ones, or replace those borders. If it's a serious mix, you can add additional rectangles of a plain or background

    Can't answer your tablet question, but my EQ7 for Mac came on a "stick" (the little plug-in that goes into the USB port). As long as the computer has a USB port, an external CD/DVD can be plugged in. My CD Rom on my MacBook Pro died, and it was less than half the cost of replace to add an external one. I'm really enjoying EQ7. I know

    I will be happy to be a cheerleader, but cannot participate in the MQ. Please make sure this is set up in a way that those of us not doing the MQ will be able to see the efforts. stitcheraz

    Dear Thea, You don't know me but I feel like I know you from all your posts. I am praying for you that God gives you the strength and courage to make the right decisions. Something you might consider with the credit card that is being used inappropriately. Think about closing it now, even though that will probably make the DIL quit paying even minimum
