    I am so excited to have found your helpful tutorials. I am not a quilter, and I think I can do this project with your guidance. My question is: will I be able to access your material after you are finished with this quilt? I have saved the lessons in my Favorites on my computer.

    I have had to acquire some plain fabric to use with the some cotton prints I found under my mother’s bed after she passed . . . dissambled dirndle skirts, shirts, curtains, etc. These fabrics are from the 40’s and 50’s, and I think this will be a great way to bring this part of my life back. Thank you so much.

      Welcome Sharlene!
      I’m so glad you’ll be joining us. I won’t be removing any of the videos or written tutorials and they will remain open and available to the entire quilting community.

      Quilting is an excellent way to integrate our past and present. I know your mother would be proud. It sounds like you have a fair amount of fabric available. If you like, I can do the measurements and fabric requirements for a larger quilt. Just let me know. Thanks again for joining us and look forward to seeing your quilt.
