Our Reader's Show and Tell....
Reader's Hints, Tips and Techniques....This is the fabric I used to make the quilt below. I used the Starmaker 6 to make the blocks out of 6 layers of the same piece. Sewed three of them together then sewed the two blocks of three together. Making the multi designed blocks. Then I had to sew Y seams to get the quilt put together. All blocks are different. I plan to use the quilt as a ME SEE Quilt, a child looking for the animals that are in the border of the quilt, then finding them in the quilt....Joyce

Julie says: Always write down where you bought which fabric. If you need or wantÂ more, you will be able to go back to the right store.
Marcia says: Try a practice block before cutting up all your fabric. You may find errors in the directions, that you don't like the way it looks, or the block is too hard or too easy for your purposes. You can then switch to another quilt pattern and have not wasted time and/or fabric.Are You A Member of our Facebook Group?

"To laugh often and much,
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children,
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends,
to appreciate beauty and find the best in others,
to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition,
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have have lived...this is to have succeeded!"
