In speaking with the editors of the course, we are told that they are very close to completing the editing phase and are still planning to launch in October. Keep watching for the early bird special discount that will be available soon. Happy Quilting!
Boy, what a day I had yesterday! I so wanted to work on my star quilt, and it seems like everything I did, was wrong! I cut the fabric wrong, was sewing wrong.. It was just a wrong, wrong, wrong day. So, guess what I did, I decided to stop forcing it, and my husband and I went to lunch with our friends. Now, I hope today will be a better sewing day. How many of you have had days like that? Did you go to lunch too!! LOL
For Straight of Grain
To figure the length of binding needed, take the length plus the width times 2 and add 12 inches.
Example: length is 68" + width 52" = 120" x 2 = 240" plus 12" = 252"
Divide that by 40" to get the number of strips needed = 6.3 round up to 7 strips. (252/40)
To figure the yardage multiply the number of strips by the width of your binding
Example: 7 strips x 21/2 " = 17.5 inches = 1/2 yard.
Tools Of The Trade
When you take up quilting, there are many tools, or items that will make your task easier and more fun. These specialty items are available online, in craft shops, department stores and quilt shops. While not all are necessary, they really do come in handy.
I have listed below, items that you will find helpful:
SCISSORS / CUTTERS
NEEDLES AND PINS
MISCELLANEOUS AND HELPFUL ITEMS
Any of the notions listed would make a great gift for your favorite quilter!
If you're like me, envious of those who have the talent to create beautiful items in just a few hours... Well, guess what... my dear friend Linda DuBois has taken me under her wings and has created a step by step course JUST FOR ME!! Well, not really! Linda has been quilting for over 10 years, and has created some wonderful items, and now she is sharing her talent and passion with anyone interested in learning how to quilt. But, this is not just for the beginner, like me, it is for seasoned quilters also.
