Sizing Frame

Each block features a frame that you can use for sizing. This is great for smoothing out size discrepancies that can happen in sewing sampler blocks. We’ve made a video demonstrating how to size blocks using a frame.

Will there be a fabric kit available for this quilt?

Edna Clark

I like the Journey to Paducah Quilt. Matter of fact I enjoy all of AQS quilt patterns.

Shirley Planet

Linda P

How do I order the fabric kit for this quilt?

marie

Valerie

If you do order the colored fabric, are all the colors labeled so you know what they are?

can i get a color coded fabric list

how do i get to the members access area for the quilting designs as i am a member just not sure where to navigate to on the web site?

Linda Cleary

Betsey – Do you have any tips on working with these small half square triangles. I am experienced, but the ironing has me stumped. The back is so bulky.

Peg

I love this quilt but don’t have time to do it right now. Will the directions stay on this site or do I need to print them all out?

bobbie barnack

Is there a way to download and save each block with the picture with out being online? I have saved each block but the picture is not showing up. I will be visiting family and do not want to use up their internet time.

Karen Lagergren

I am enjoying “the Quilt Chat” each week. Thank you for all the blocks that are available. I am planning to start “journey to Paducah “ soon. I purchased the kit. I just love the solid colors. Hope to purchase the black fabric tomorrow. I just hope the pattern will be available for at least 1 year. ??.
