Thank you so much for the info. I love this quilt. I intend to make one for my queen bed. Kitt

Thanks Kitt. Please share your version when you make it, I'd love to see what variation you make!

Dude, I wish I had the room to keep some of my quilts - some are like babies you see them grow with all the work you put into them. I might just have to get a bigger unit. What a great idea in rotating them on your bed.

It's hard to see one go, isn't it? I read somewhere that if you don't have a lot of space and to keep your quilts from wrinkling, you can lay them flat on a spare bed [assuming you have one], and just rotate them so they all get some fresh air. That prevents them from getting creases. I just do one at a time - 2 if it's really chilly.

Dude, unfortunately I don't have a 2nd bedroom and I also have a cat who helps me with all my quilt making - the quilts I make I usually give only to those I am close to or to those who ask me to make them one. I just love Craftsy and seeing all the wonderful quilts that members create - I cannot afford classes here and am getting too old to carry my machine to the local patchwork store so that is why I love the online route. The only thing I cannot really get used to with the online is the scant 1/4". Here we use a proper quarter inch so that makes it much easier for me although am starting to get used to the scant idea. I must go and work and try and finish the quilt I have on the go at the moment. Thanks for sharing that information. You do really great work.

When I took up quilting again about 3 years ago, I tried doing a quarter inch seam, and for some reason it did not work for me! The quilt started fraying and shredding on the seams!! So, I use a 3/8 inch seam. I have to adjust ALL the measurements to accommodate the extra 1/8 inch, but that works for me. Whenever I do use a 1/4 inch seam, it looks so tiny to me, like it won't hold. So my "scant" 3/8 seam is still larger than a regular 1/4 seam! Hahaha. Oh, well. That's how I do things, what can I say? LOL Have a great weekend, Beth.

Hi Dude, sorry I haven't answered sooner - have had my head down with cross stitch. I will try your method of 3/8 " - I am always worried about fraying - it is easier to adjust a pattern than lose a quilt because the seams are too small. As you have obviously tried the different seam allowances and the 3/8 works well for you - I have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Thanks Dude for that. Take care Dude

Will do, as soon as I get the right material for it. I want it to look right.
