1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quilt Pattern - but no seam allowances on: November 12, 2007 09:58:49 PM
Hi, I found a lovely quilt pattern, but it warned that it was just a 'suggestion' picture of the final image, and seam allowances were not taken into consideration.

Essentially, everything is made from a square cut into fourths, so you have 4 equal right triangles. When sewn together, the squares need to be 4" on each side.

I'm fairly new to quilting, and horrible at geometry. Can anybody tell me how big I need to cut my squares so that after I quarter them and then sew a 1/4" seam, the completed pieced squares will be 4"?

I hope this isn't that confusing, I don't have access to a scanner to get the picture on here, unfortunately. Your help is greatly appreciated!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pattern (Butterick 4443) Help? on: October 14, 2005 07:39:58 PM
I'm sewing with Butterick pattern 4443, here's the link:


I'm making dress "A", which would be the one in the bottom left in that picture, the floral strapless one.

I'm making the bodice part out of black satin, and it is interfaced and such as the pattern directs. I'm at step 4 (not very far, yikes!) and I'm quite confused. I'm sewing the 2 front sides to the front center. I've scanned in the step and the picture. I guess the part that confuses me is where it talks about "clipping bodice front as necessary." I've pinned numerous times, and if I match the notches, it bulges. I've tried basting once, and it just looked mutated.  Undecided  Luckily it was just basting. If I do have to clip it, how and where do they mean? I've never ran into anything like this before.

The first picture is what the center front piece looks like, the second is the step, and its illustration.

Any ideas and suggestions would be great!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simple (and cheap, yay!) Skirt + Bag on: August 24, 2005 09:54:23 PM
Hi, new to this forum, this here is my first post.

Just made this today, decided to show some pics. Just a really simple patterned skirt, fully lined, with the lacy trim. I picked up the fabric as a remnant, 34 inches, which meant I had to use the width, so I had to make it very straight. It cost me a grand total of 4.93 USD after taxes and everything. And that's with the handbag included. And I still have some remnants of everything, the fabric, lining and lace.

(And I do realize there is a separate subforum for the bags, so if me posting that pic here is a no-no, just tell me!)
