Free Calculator for On Point Quilt Setting Triangles

There are many web pages that will tell you how do the math for setting triangles for an on point quilt. However, there aren't very many that actually do the math for you.

I just add this capability to the free calculators at MyWebQuilter.com.

On the calculator screen, enter your finished block size and the number of columns/rows in your quilt. Click calculate to have MyWebQuilter.com calculate the size setting triangles to cut as well as the total fabric requirements for the setting triangles.


Easy and free.... Check it out..

Quilts at the Bay Quilt Challenge

My quilt guild has a quilt show every two years. Our show is called Quilts at the Bay as it is held at Bay Community College in beautiful Escanaba, MI (located on Little Bay de Noc, Lake Michigan).

Our next quilt show is October 13-14, 2011. Does this sound like a long way off? Well as one of the organizers...the time will pass too quickly!

We are having a quilt challenge as part of the show. The challenge is open to anyone, there are prizes and the challenge quilts will be displayed at the show.

The challenge is to use a "recognizable amount" of each of the 4 fabrics in the challenge pack. The challenge pack is pictured below. There is a maximum size and a few other rules. For full details check out our quilt show website.



Challenge packs are available for $10 at Quilts 'n Stuff. The packs are available at the shop or by ordering on-line.

Consider joining the challenge! My quilt is already in process......

Happy Quilting,

Amber
