Q and A

I’m so far behind on comments, I don’t think I’ll ever catch up! So I decided to do a Q and A post to hopefully catch us all up.

First off, I have been asked about the pattern for this QOV. I don’t have one! I just used four patches made from 2 1/2” squares and 2 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch rectangles. You can read more about the making of this top here and here. I’m more than happy for anyone to copy this quilt for personal use!

I was also asked what the affiliate program was for Urban Elementz. Being an affiliate simply means that if you click to a site through a link on my blog, and subsequently make a purchase, I make a tiny commission. Urban Elementz has discontinued this program so I no longer receive a commission from them. However, I am still an affiliate for Accuquilt , Connecting Threads, and Fat Quarter Shop . The commission I earn helps to cover the cost of the blog. Maintaining a blog requiring this much storage is far from free, so I greatly appreciate the support.

A pattern for my Blue Collar Diamonds quilt can be found in the book, A Sisterhood of Scraps.

I was also asked about the hanging loops in the photo above. They are bits of twill tape, about 7 inches long. I just use straight pins to attach them to the quilt. They are not permanently affixed.

I had questions about using sheets for backing. I personally have not had problems using sheets for backings. However, I do not use super high thread count sheets. I don’t prewash them.

I think that’s it for now. Have a great day!

  2. Thanks for the QOV info. I guessed that was the size, but wasn’t sure. Looking forward to cutting those red and blue scraps. (and you don’t need to respond to this one, either)

    Thanks a million! I do plan on making a few veteran’s quilts with the QOV pattern. I can just cut up squares and rectangles with my new Accuquilt Go and use it as feeder projects this summer. The Accuquilt cutter is great, but I have learned it is not really for someone like me who doesn’t do a lot of pieced quilts. I gave it to a friend to try for a while. I will visit it at her house and use it for projects like these and also for some wool cutting. Thanks for posting about the sale. My friend is so thrilled to be able to share it with me!
