I have a question about the point system. If we participate, do you just pick one of those point systems to use? And I understand the price but I don't think I understand the time, point or size.

On the time, is that time spend making item?

On points, do you put in one of each sized item to add up the points? How do you determine how big is large, medium and small? Do you use the same size categories as the size system?

And on size, again, is that one of each item? Isn't that the same as the point system?

16  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to finish this quilt on: February 22, 2010 11:56:52 AM
I'm kinda new at quilting too and I realize this subject is a little old but I wanted to add something. I know there are traditional ways to make quilts and fancy ways to put binding on. But I guess I'm just lazy because as a seamstress who does clothing, I have a habit of looking at things as being sewn and then flipped inside out to finish. I found a youtube video of someone doing this with a very simple quilt and I think this a really fast way to do a quilt.

Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5q0L57g8pBo

I intend to do this with my quilt. Then if you have a large quilt and don't want to pay to have it quilted, you could do the tie method someone else already mentioned.

Here's another video about tying quilts that I also think is really easy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kI6AcTqr-YM

I'm not knocking the traditional way to do a quilt. I think it's great to keep that alive. But although I like quilting, I like doing clothing better so quilting is not my first love. And I have a habit of short-cutting because I don't intend to sell anything I make. So, for a newbie, I think that these types of quilt short-cuts can help make you feel like you accomplished something rather than running into a lot of confusing methods and terminology.

There are premade soap kits that allow the kids to mold the soap like play dough. Try www.kidkleen.com.

Thanks for all the great info!

Okay, after looking I came across this pattern.

http://www.butterick.com/item/B4985.htm??tab=list/tops&page=all

The blue shirt in the pic looks pretty similar to the shirt but there are no ruffles on the front. And this shirt buttons all the way down.

How would I go about making this pattern with no buttons and adding the ruffles like the shirt from Torrid? I know how to sew but I haven't been doing it very long.
