  1. While packing to move, I discover that I own two copies of this book. I probably only need one. It contains everything (and more) that she does in her high-priced classes. In addition, with the DVD you can watch her over and over. I'm sorry I spent so much money on her class when I only needed this book. $15.00 plus actual shipping. Send e-mail marniemg@msn.com
  2. Pantographs For Sale $7.50 each plus postage. (They will be mailed flat, which is cheaper than buying a tube to mail them in. We use them flat; why do we store them rolled up? ? ?)

  3. I just got notice from a company that calls itself "Fictitious Business Name Renewal Center" with a return address in Sacramento. The last line of the envelope return address says "This is not a government document". TAKE HEED. This company very cleverly makes you think it is official and purports to renew your "Fictitious Business Name" (also known as a DBA - doing business as) which is a legal requirement in most states if the name of your business does not include your full name. In Calif. FBN's expire every five years. Mine expires in October, but I get this form from them stating it expires July 22, 2013, and if I fill out their form and send them $125.00, they will renew my FBN. Of course they will. But I can do it myself through the County Recorder for $25.00. BEWARE ! !
  4. It's just LOVELY! But I wish you'd reconsider about doing all that work on a future quilt made of muslin. Muslin is a lower grade of cotton, and not for your best work. I thought I was buying some good muslin from Keepsakes as a backing for very special Dear Jane, and I was very disappointed at the quality of it.

  6. This is the first time I have used diamonds instead of squares for cross-hatching, and I just love it. See my "tutorial" about cross-hatching in the "Chat About Anything" forum.
  7. Now now I'm done! This is a little out of order, but hopefully you'll be able to follow it. I still have some stuff to learn about the revamped website. I don't know why no Delete button is showing in my posts . . . It used to be that one could only put one picture in at a time, and I see that has been changed here. . . I just finished this entire quilt. See it in the Pictures category.
  8. 7. Use the same method for 45-degree cross hatching. Photo 8.
  9. Note: Remember that your squares / diamonds don’t have to be exactly 45 degrees or 30 degrees. It only has to look good. Your goal is to get the lines equally spaced and in all four corners.
  10. 6. The side margin marks are determined from the height of the internal diamonds / squares. Photos 6-7
  11. 4. Lay the paper on the quilt block. Using the marks on the folded lines as a guide, mark the top and bottom edges of your block. 5. Draw your stitching lines from top to bottom. Photos 4-5
  12. Solution: 1) Cut a 2” wide strip of paper as long as the exact width of your block. You can use newspaper, typing paper, etc. Adding machine tape is perfect, although the type of paper used is unimportant. 2. Fold the paper in half and then in half again as many times as necessary to make the distance between quilting lines to your liking. (Alternative spacing: Fold the paper into thirds before folding it into halves.) 3. Open out the folds; using a pencil or pen, mark the fold lines on the paper so that they are easily seen. Photo 3
