In 2010, TQS will treat you to not one, but two Sue Garman Block-of-the-Month quilts! Both quilts--one applique and one pieced--are bright and cheery, sure to be showstoppers on a bed or wall. Once again, Sue will offer lots of instruction and tips along with the patterns. Be ready: This is "the year of quilting" as Sue helps you enliven your quilts with many quilting options.

Don't miss out on the fun and learning available to you through the TQS BOM quilting community. Click here for the fabric requirements so you can be ready when we launch both patterns on January 1, 2010. (Word to the wise: We sold out our 2009 BOM quilts quickly, so be sure to get your 2010 kit(s) early by visiting the TQS Shoppe.) We are very excited to offer you this opportunity and look forward to you seeing your work as the year progresses.

Green Border fabric too short (using kit) 12 Feb 2010 13:48 #43444

I followed February instructions for cutting 10 binding strips first, (2 1/4") selvage to selvage. Then cut borders parallel to selvage. After cutting the binding strips, there was just 84 1/4" left of length for the longest border. I would suggest cutting the two longest border strips ahead of cutting the binding strips. Or just cut 8 binding strips, then cut borders, then cut last 2 binding strips? Hope this helps others. I may end up having to piece my longest border strips now. Thanks.
