    Hello, Random question I know, but I'm sure I saw in a paper? That there was a group of women that make patchwork quilts for a good cause somewhere on the Costa? Benalmádena springs to mind ? Mum had boxes and boxes of material already precut into square, diamonds, hexagons etc to make patchwork quilts but never got round to it. To save us throwing all her stuff away we would rather it goes to a good cause. Does anyone know what the group is that I'm talking about? Please help I didn't find the right solution from the internet. References: http://www.andalucia.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=38222 Creative video marketing studio Thank you

    Hello, Regarding the photo patchwork quilts, is there a way to print the pattern? I am new to the program so perhaps I am missing something obvious. But when I hit the print button, the option I can print out fabric yardage and a picture of the quilt. Not sure what to do with photo layout? Any help? Please help I didn't find the right solution from the internet. References: http://doyoueq.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2320 Online Video Studio Thank you

    Hi! I'm very artistic but know nothing or very little about sewing and have embarked on a project to make patchwork pillowcases with beautiful coloured patterns! I'm very excited but feel like I'm making a mess of the entire project. I'm making 16-patch pillowcases for 16x16inch inserts.  One tutorial I read said cut 16-inch panels, because you want your pillowcases to be snug. So I went ahead and cut HUNDREDS of patchwork squares 4.5 inches square (losing 1/4 inch for the seam chain-sewing). Yes, I know. I jumped in with both feet, and eyes closed. I think I got really excited about learning to use the rotary cutter and self-healing mat. Now, I'm really worried that once I sew the 16-inch panels together, I'll lose even more seam allowance and they'll be closer to 15-inches and will be too small for the inserts.  I'm having a very horrible moment of triple doubt... 1. Should I have planned for 16.5 or 17-inch inserts?  2. Should I have planned for bigger patchwork squares? 3. Should the patchwork squares that are on the edge, where there is a seam, have to be even bigger than the patchwork squares at the center of the pillow-case panel? Sorry for all the newbie questions.  Looking at YouTube tutorials I realised there are even special patchwork rulers like 2.5x6 or 4.5x9 or even square ones!! If I had known!! I really hope someone can help alleviate my anxiety at messing everything up before I even start. Someone I asked suggested to make a border like a log cabin quilt, and down the rabbit-hole of Google searches I went and I'm even more confused now.
