Half of the square triangles with the quilt?

I'm starting a baby quilt from a kit I bought. This simple model, consisting of large pieces. In fact, there are only six finished the quilt blocks together. Four of 6 1 / 4 "pieces are sewn together to a four-block patch. After 9 "blocks are cut diagonally to create two triangles and a square and a half. These triangles are sewn on each side to create the finished block. The problem I have is after sewing the first two and a half square triangles and the press, when I sew in the other two, instead of getting what appears to complete four triangles, two triangles, the second cutting edges. Is this something that happened due to a problem so far? Perhaps with the introduction of the web?

I was totally confused, but figured it out! It seems that the 6 1 / 4 "measuring cup is a mistake, not his mistake. Traditionally, 1 / 2" is added to the end of measurement. Example: if a block is to finish 6 "to measure and cut the block to 6 1 / 2" to allow the traditional 4.1 "stitched quilt to rebuild this principle could be the reason for the triangle. does not fit, because you must have a 1 / 4 "extension at each corner of the tip is sewn on the side of the block 4 patch. However, if you short blocks 6 1 / 4 "and use the traditional seam 1 / 4", finished 4 patch blocks measure 12 "x 12". In comparison, a 6 1 / 2 "cutting block would result in block 4 patch that measures 12 1 / 2" x 12 1 / 2. "The 9" diagonal cutting block and gives a cut to 13 ". Central to the cutting edge 12 "4-patch block and has 1 / 2" back at each end, which is too much. Cut the triangle of 1 / 4 "each side bottom to top, leaving the necessary 1 / 4 "on each end of the base 4 patch sewn block. Use cotton thread to help eliminate the stretch. I would see the model of this team or a team photo.

candle making can be a great hobby and many people are engaged in the manufacture of candles. Whatever the reason is that you want to make your own candles, you'll need some basic supplies. If you're not making candles to sell for a profit, you really do not need to buy a lot of expensive equipment. If you sell, however, you should buy the best quality candle making equipment you can afford what happens to last longer.

The candles are made of wax and paraffin is available, soy, beeswax and receives. The most common type wax used for the manufacture of paraffin candles is. soy wax has become another favorite because it is natural, it burns, it burns cleanly and does paraffin. Soy wax is shaped scales, which makes it a little easier to use than paraffin is on a slab to be flaked or cut. If you want to candlelight, the use of gel wax.

After melting the wax, you elected to pay into the pot, pan or mold. Keep handles close to use when working with hot glass.

A candle burns hairless, it is the most important piece the equipment you need. There are different types of bits for different types of candles to choose the bit for your project.

The wax must be melted, so you need a pot for melting. You can buy a jar of wax made for that, or bath also work. A Once you use your double boiler to melt the wax, but you do not want to use it more for cooking. Pour wax pots are also available which can heat the wax and then use it to pour into the mold.

Must have a thermometer to check the temperature of the melted wax. Wax is too hot can explode in flames. The success of the candle will also be determined by the temperature that melts the wax.

You want to add color and scent of your candles. The color is available in blocks of colors, stains and there are many colors to choose from. You will also find a variety perfumes and essential oils available. You can make your candle with a fragrance based on the season, such as gingerbread Christmas. You will also find strong odors, smells of flowers and the smell of earth and perfumes that smell of food.

Never, never leave the room, while the wax melts wax, because it is flammable and can ignite. For this reason, you must have a dry chemical fire extinguisher nearby if possible. A wet towel will also work as a brake is put to the flame. You can also pour baking soda on the fire. DO NOT pour water on the fire because water will cause the fire spread.

Because working with hot wax, would be a good idea to have a similar kit for treating burns.

Acquisition supplies for making candles for a company may cost a little money, but if the candle is just a hobby, the cost is not as high. There are many places that carry supplies for making candles. hobby shops will take them or you can find everything you need online. You can also search online to find out everything that should have and know to make your own candles.
