Need Some Help

WordPress is pouting again so this is going to be brief. Nothing like typing blind. The only way I can see what I type is to highlight the box after I’ve finished typing..
I need help testing a pattern for a special project. I need 4 or 5 willing quilters to do this. I’m not being paid for this project so there’s no pay involved. Sorry. :-(
This is a nice lap quilt size. I need the testing to be complete by the end of the month and I’ll need to see a picture of your finished quilt top.
If you’re willing to help please leave a comment and I’ll get in touch. I will send you a picture from EQ showing what the quilt looks like.
I need quilters outside the state of Louisiana please and you must be willing not to show it to anyone until the date I give..
Thanks….Sheryl

    HI Sheryl – if you need help I am willing. I don’t have a serious project at the moment and the timing is good. I will do my best even if I’m not the most experienced. I’ve done applique, machine piecing, hand piecing, and paper piecing. Thanks for your blog! I’d be so happy to help! Cheryl

    If you don’t get enough volunteers, I would be willing to give it a whirl depending on how difficult it is. I consider myself an intermediate quilter, and have done machine piecing and love paper piecing. By the end of the month might be pushing it, but don’t have anything pressing at the moment and would be glad to help.

    As long as it just needs to be pieces and not quilted by the end of month, then this is exactly what I need! I need something to convince me to start a new project. I’m just not feeling my red white and blue quilt that I am supposed to be working on. Let me know what you need :) (I’m in Michigan)

    I might be able to help. I probably need to know a little more (or see a picture) before I commit. If it’s not too complicated, I could probably get the top done by the end of the month, but probably not have it quilted and bound by then. It might depend if I have appropriate fabric in house (I do have a pretty good stash, but if the colors need to be special, I might not have the right ones. I live a long way from the nearest fabric store. I love to applique and piece. Paper piecing isn’t my thing. I presume we would be able to keep what we made.

    Hi, I’m willing to help you out. I like any technique if it’s by hand. I live in the Netherlands, so how far away from Louisiana would you like to hide your secrets….

    Not sure if I missed something, or not, but the outer border..I cut 6 pieces WOF 5.5″ but the pattern called for only 4 which was not enough…finishing the borders today and will send a pic.

      I agree it doesn’t specifically that you have to join for the sides. I did this without thinking that that is what you do.

    • Judy,

      I almost missed it too. The instructions were to cut the border Length of Fabric, not WOF. Then you would only need 4. Easy to miss. I rarely cut my borders by the Lengh of Fabric.

        You are right; I answered incorrectly. I had cut mine the length of fabric at the beginning. Sharon, you read Judy’s question better than I did.
