Last night’s Quilt-Cam via Facebook Live was a wonderful way to spend some time while assembling a baby quilt “on-point.”I’ve had questions before on how I do it, asking if it is possible to web it, but as of yet, I don’t work diagonally set quilts the same way as straight set quilts.  The rows on diagonally set quilts grow in length until you reach the center row, and then decrease again, making continuous piecing a bit on the difficult side.But I did have some hints and helps!And we talked abo
