  1. Very helpful . Thank you so much. I would like to see more interactive examples of sorting through and choosing fabrics that work together. I mean, give the viewer time to choose which fabrics should be eliminated. Of course, that means we would need better closeups of each fabric.

    Thank you very much for all the videos. This Quilty series is very helpful and Mary is a very knowledgeable host.
