  1. Thanks April for the octagon template. I finally remembered to look for the template on your website and it was an easy find. I love the pattern and I’m getting ready to make it.

    You may not remember but I met you at Spring Market and it was so fun talking with you and seeing your great patterns. That’s when I bought the Russian Rubix Pattern.

    Have a great Holiday!

    1. Kim–
      Of course I remember you! It was so much fun to meet someone who loved the Rubix quilt as much as I do. :) I would love to see your version when it’s finished. How’s it coming?

  2. Hello,

    I bought Orchard House and have a couple of questions. First, what size am I supposed to subcut the strip sets GDG, EEE, and CFC? And which E am I supposed to press toward in the EEE strip set? Thank you for your time!

  3. On pattern Starway #165, page 3 under “MARK”, the pattern states “mark a diagonal line on the back of each 1 1/2″ square… Does it mean to draw a diagonal line on the 2” square?

    Thanks in advance.

  4. This Criss Cross pattern is not working out. I have been fighting it with every block I attempt. Something is not right.

  5. I inherited free spirit beechwood from a friend who passed away. It was complete quilt in a bag, fabric and backing. I am having great difficulty with this quilt. So to begin with I Made about 8 blocks with the white and when I joined the 4th and 5th strips in each block, I no longer had 1/2” gap between strips. Because I could not access your pattern revisions?, I decided to remedy it by sewing the first 4 strips, trimming 1/2” on the left and then sewing the next 4 strips and trimming 1/2” on the right. It did not give me 1/2”, but 1/4” which worked for me. Unfortunately you do not include detailed descriptions, on cutting as it refers to each unit. So when I got to lay out blocks on my design wall, the colour picture does not match the block layout in grayscale. Confusing! You do not say cut 5” x 8 1/2” white and polka dot strips to insert at sides to stagger block settings. HELP! Could you please walk me through the cutting and sewing process to assemble these blocks into a quilt top. Thank you
