It was much easier to measure and layout the baffles on the stiff cardboard ONE TIME rather than do it on the gossamer thin Seven D, TWO TIMES. Here is HitchHiking's link...

    And here is my cardboard template....
    Also, JoAnn's tulle is woven on a 45 degree bias so I had to cut it with the weave at 45 degrees shown here so that it wouldn't stretch in the direction I was sewing...


    Thanks Mike, Im really chuffed that the video was of use to you. Templates rock eh! Now you can built it again and again when you get requests!

    Your quilt looks fantastic.

    Wow Mad! It looks like a lot of work you went through. End product looks nice. It also looks like it is a lighter version than your other wearable quilt I saw at last years Fla. hang. Thats a lot of squares! Be proud my friend of your excellant work and eye for detail!
