  3. I love this. I’m a new quilter, I’ve made a quilt for me, my very first one, and probably picked one of the hardest for a new quilter, but it turned out beautiful. It was the Courthouse Stairs. LOL Then I got the bug and made a beautiful one for my daughter. Now I’m finishing one up for my other daughter, and going to start making my son one. He likes the Interlocking Stars that is on the cover of your magazine. So wish me luck on that one. LOL Anyway I love your shows. Thanks again!!!

  5. I’m a new quilter and I think this would make a great boarder around a quilt. I’m going to have to try this.
