    Re: Garment Sewing Advice for a Beginner

    5/8, 5/8, 5/8 ... I'll put a huge post-it note right on top of my sewing machine to help me remember. I can see where this would be a big problem for a quilter new to other kinds of sewing. Thank...

    Re: Garment Sewing Advice for a Beginner

    Thank you so much for all this helpful info! I have put zippers in a few times (totes and such) but my patience level is severely lacking, so each time it was really frustrating. Therefore I agree...

    Re: Jelly roll pattern fit for Kaffe Fassett?

    The_Last_Unicorn, thanks for those suggestions; the "Over and Under" pattern, I agree, would look great with KF fabrics. Maybe I'll get this book, do you have it yourself? There's always enough...

    Re: My first "real" class and first bargello

    Sewluvit, I've been quilting 4 years now and have been intimidated to try a bargello. I'm not very patient so it didn't seem like a good idea. My close friend and quilting mentor provides longarm...

    Re: Matching bags

    Great idea to make a set! That fabric is terrific; it reminds me of Stonehenge Gradations which I've just used for a queen-sized wedding and matching pillowcases and throw pillow.
