Twyla, I love your quilting memories. I just shows that quilting is so much more than just fabric and thread. Don't you agree? I also think that people that don't have a hobby are really missing out. I have become a much calmer person since I started quilting. I don't have any parents or grandparents that quilted but I sure plan to pass my skills down to my kids and their kids. I told my 15 year old son that he has to marry a girl that is crafty. He just looks at me like I've lost my mind.
My oldest daughter doesn't have an interest yet in quilting but my 18 year old daughter loves to sew and has made a couple quilts. I wish you happy quilting!

Hey Twyla,
I have been driving for 12 years.
Assuming you have checked the accuracy of your 1/4"the 1/4" quilting foot or my pfaff does NOT give me 1/4" seams, I have to move the needle to the right!), it might not be you! The pattern may be wrong. In that case, you can cut these pieces larger or smaller to fit the block. I found Fons and Porters triangle cutters very useful when I started...they are pink and blue, 1 ea, and guide you where to trim off any excess to you can accurately place your pieces together.

Hi Twyla:
Welcome to the Quilt Frame. It looks like you're already getting some help with that triangle project. As you can see, you've come to the right place. I always feel like I'm sitting at a very large quilt frame listening to all the ideas and suggestions (and other bits of conversation). Its a great place to be and I'm glad you decided to join us. Joyce
