    I can attest, I have his breeze and it is excellent craftsmanship.

    Question, what needle do you use? Been thinking of making my first ever quilt and hoping for a 15 degree.

    some photos to help - with a visual description - aid in making good channels starting with the quilt corners.

    first, you want to finish sewing the 3 closed sides with a 1/4" edge.


    then, fold the corner down, make a crease in the fabric if it helps guide you for the next step:


    make a fold again, and stitch it tight. the object is to make this double-fold in your edge match the desired size for your quilt's border. in this case, we are looking at about 1/2 inch. this is a good size to accept a drawcord in the top & bottom channels without reducing the overall quilt size too much.

    the next step is double-folding the entire quilt leaving one side open for your down fill. keep the fabric mated, that is to say make sure both layers of fabric are sewn together well so there is no buckling or wrinkling in the fabric. pay close attention to this, as you are likely to deal with a side that is over 6' long. happy DIY quilting!
