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!
Found pattern. Thanks
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.
