Quilters Newsletter Workshop | Series 100 | 108 Full Episode

Donna Lynn Thomas offers more tips for using the Omnigrid On-Point Ruler. In this segment, she demonstrates how to make the sawtooth block in Rainbow Radiance. She also offers helpful advice for making half square triangles that measure perfectly when finished and offers cutting instructions for the half-square triangles and squares. When the blocks are completed, Donna explains the borders on Rainbow Radiance. Note that the top and bottom inner quilt borders are a different width than those on the sides. Donna also explains the philosophy behind using variegated thread to quilt the central part of the quilt and white thread in the borders.

  1. I try to watch the full video of on point patchwork but all I get is the preview video. I have tried several different avenues, am already logged in, checked out my member file so what is the problem.? I know I read someone else has had this problem but don’t know the fix.
