Using a clipping block for a Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt.

In this video Sheridan demonstrates how to use a clipping block for the last pass on a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt so the pattern does not stitch off the edge of the quilt top. The video does have a few shakes with the camera but the material covered should be worth it.

Sheridan Carter's Favorite No Sew Zone Method

There's lots of nuggets of information in this one. No sew zones can be created with less over stitching by using stop and tie off as the transition. Splitting the pantograph will give you a built in stop so you can add a no sew zone block inside the body of the quilt. Another option is to utilize the speed of your presentation clicker to stop IQ. This method allows you to back up and add the blocks. It's so much fun and very successful. Try it and see which is your favorite! Sheridan Carter is Representative for APQS and Intelliquilter.
