    I'm from Scotland and it is 1.30 am! I am new to quilting and have had trouble with sewing long seams when sewing strips together to make a large piece which I would then cut to make pieces. The piece starts to warp. I've bought a walking foot to try to rectify this. Should I be sewing from the same end each time or should I alternate ends to to try to sort this?

    what do you think of putting a product on the back of the rulers to help the hold still? If you like them, which product do you recommend?

    When bordering blocks do you add the sides first or do you add the top and bottom border first?

    Hi Heather. Any suggestion as to how to measure fabric to accurately cut long borders? I never seem to be able to get it just right.
