    Re: Martelli 50% off Sale

    Re: What is your preference?

    Re: Opinion please on quilting motif

    Seems a bit distracting.

    Have you seen the quilt design using straight lines to make curves?

  9. Re: Aurafil thread and M* thread. Anyone used both of these?

    I always compare thread prices by the yard because spool size varies.

    What color do you want the quilt to be? Generally speaking, the color of your quilt is the color of your border!
