    Re: slow to ship

    Good to know that it's not just me. Thanks for the peace of mind. I did have 4 fabrics that needed to be cut the this most recent order. That makes sense that yardage would take a bit longer.

    I plan on attending the Houston Quilt Show in November. I was looking at their Exhibitor List recently and noticed that MSQ wasn't included. Will MSQ be at this show?

    I have two mats: a 12" x 18" mat and a 36" x 24" mat. The larger one is good for laying the folded fabric down and cutting strips and large pieces. The smaller one is good for squaring up blocks...

    Re: Picking fabrics that coordinate
