    wow just wanted to say i love your web site unfortunately i still work full time and dont have as much time as i would like doing quilting but you give me such great ideas so i have more than one on the go
    thankyou for all the inspiration you give me
    sandra

  2. Hi Rose, have watched some of your tutorials on u tube and found your teaching easy, Thanks. Are you in Port Ludlow? Used to go there as a kid.
    Thanks also for the site

  3. Robert Joss says:

    This is the only place I can fine to respond to your email asking me to confirm my email address. rdjoss@yahoo.com

    • I am so sorry you’ve had problems confirming. I have checked and you are definitely on the list now. Thanks for your interest.

  4. I am making a crazy quilt as I had loads of odd pieces of material. This is first one and taking so much energy trying to work everything out. I could find work for a guardian angel. It started out as a cushion cover and is now king size.
    Used to live near Ludlow and often went there shopping. Nice place.

    • Hi Jenny. That’s quite a change in size – from a cushion cover to a king size quilt! Well done. You must be really proud of it.

  5. Dear Rose
    I love your website, do you have a pattern for a quilted cover for a
    Mixmaster?

  6. Ursula Jane Berrey says:

    I have tried several times to join your weekly newsletter but I never receive the link to confirm. Please help, thank you. Ursula

    • Hi Ursula. I’ve checked the system and you are right – it says it’s awaiting confirmation. All I can think is that the confirmation email must be going into your junk folder. Would you mind checking there for the email? The trouble is that I cannot add you to the list manually because you will still need to confirm. It’s all to do with anti-spam guidelines. Thanks for your interest.

  7. Ursula Jane Berrey says:

    Hi Thank you for your e-mail unfortunately I have checked my junk and spam mail and there is no e-mail to confirm link. I can’t think where else to look.
    Ursula

    • Hi Ursula. The system isn’t allowing me to cancel your subscription yet. By tomorrow I should be able to cancel it and then I’ll try and find a way to subscribe you manually. Could you add rose@ludlowquiltandsew.co.uk to your contacts list please and I’ll let you know tomorrow when I’ve added you to the list so that you can look out for the confirmation. I’m so sorry it hasn’t been a straightforward exercise for you.

  8. Ursula Jane Berrey says:

    Hi Rose, Thank you for your trouble I have added your e-mail to my contacts and look forward to hearing from you tomorrow.

    • Hi Ursula. My apologies for the length of time this has taken, but I have now managed to subscribe you. I have emailed you, but thought that I had better contact you here as well just to be sure. Best wishes, Rose

  9. Ursula Jane Berrey says:

    Hi Rose thank you so much for all your trouble I shall really look forward to receiving your Newsletter. I have been following your site but it will be great to have the Newsletter delivered to my in box.
    Kind regards Ursula

  10. Mrs J V Sutherst says:

    Hi Rose,
    I am quite keen to make the Square in a Square quilt, I have quite a large piece of the darker fabric but only a piece of the lighter measuring 68″ in length by 44″ in width. Am I correct in assuming this would allow me to make the quilt you demonstrate, i.e including the border?

    As I would like to enlarge the quilt to 6ft x 6ft, how much fabric would I require in the lighter colour?

    Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks.

    June.

    • Hi June. I am so sorry that this reply has taken me so long. I wanted to be able to sit down and think about this and haven’t managed that till now. First of all, yes the light fabric you have would certainly be enough for the quilt. If you wanted to increase the size of the quilt, you would really need to make six rows of six blocks (rather than the four by four that I have used), so you would need to use an additional twenty blocks. I would think that you need to buy an additional 50″ or so of the light fabric in order to have enough. I hope that helps. Best wishes, Rose

  11. Hi there
    I have just done the easy four patch quilt and it is lovely thank you for this site I will soon be doing another of yours
    Sue

  12. Joyce O'Donnell says:

    Sorry if this info is noted already and I’ve missed it but when you quote fabric amounts how wide is the fabric please.

  13. I love making hexagons! I use most of my scraps, create hexagons then use them for other projects… great to take along anywhere.

  14. Just found your site. What a delight. I make quilts for Project Linus UK and they are going to get some new ideas! Thank you.

  15. Lesley Turvey says:

    Just made my first quilt. The design was churn dash in green and white. The quilt is looking very puffy. Perhaps the wadding was.nt suitable. I like quilts that are flat. Can you advise me as to what wadding to use and is it best to use spray adhesive. Thank you. I come to Ludlow occasionally as I live in Kidderminster. Lesley.

    • Hi Lesley. I don’t live in Ludlow any more – I moved to Birmingham about a year ago – just the other side of Kidderminster! I think that it’s unlikely to have been the wadding that caused the puffiness. Waddings do vary in loft (thickness), but as it’s your first quilt I’d be inclined to suggest that it’s more likely to be the layering. You need to spend some time making sure that your quilt top is very flat and that you pin the layers together with lots of pins, smoothing from the middle all the time. You also need to smooth the top as you’re quilting – again from the centre outwards. Hope that helps.

      • Lesley turvey says:

        Thank you. I did use maybe 200 pins. It looks ok. But it was so big for my first quilt. Might use spray adhesive next time. Smoothing all the time. Rail fence soon just got to finish binding.

        • Hi Lesley. You certainly did well to make a queen size quilt for your first quilt – you seem to have well and truly caught the quilting bug!

          • Lesley turvey says:

            It’s been my dream for years. I bought a go big machine earlier this year because I found cutting out very tedious. Money well spent.

          • Hi Lesley. Nowadays there are so many things available to help us with our quilting – as well as all the gorgeous fabrics in the shops!
