    Hi Heather, I am watching from the Blue Mountains about 70klms west of Sydney Australia. I have been told two ways of attaching fabric to the papers in English piecing. One is to turn the material over the paper and just paste the material turnig to the paper on the wrong side. The second is to catch the corners with a stitch or stitch the material to the paper. Kind Regards, Bev

    I have a pattern for a baby quilt, but want to make a twin size. Should I basically double the pattern when cutting?

    Hi.. I just bought some batique today. Sorry don't know how it is spelled. I am worried about it running tho. It is beautiful fabric and I look forward to working with it. Do I wash it very many times to stop the running, and do I use something special for it to wash in? thanks so much

    fold large amounts of material to wash and dry. Fold accordian style along width so you are folding up the length and saftey pin each end. Wash and dry and it doesn't bunch up
