I wish someone was holding my hand for this. I am a bit of a beginner. This is my second quilt. I have a striped fabric with the pattern of stripes repeated every 6 inches. I want the stripes to be at 90 degrees to the sides of the quilt, not running alongside. And I need to mitre the corners which I have never done before.
Oh, and I got the fabric abroad and haven't got enough to make mistakes.
Have cut 6 strips, paced around a bit, now I'm posting on Mumsnet. Any hints, tips or encouragement?!
I 1st need to make 4 long strips by joining strips at the right point in the pattern. Then I need to make the stripes meet up at the mitre. I forsee a lot of shuffling strips around and scratching my head.
