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!
