  1. I like the imrpov method of quilting. I’m working on one right now. The main problem I see here is the waste of fabric. Being a frugal person myself, I don’t like that aspect. From my own experience I think it should be possible to sew improv and still not waste lots of fabric. I’ve done it in some things. With the present financial state in this country I want to use every bit of fabric I can within reason. Maybe you could suggest ways to use those scraps. I know there are ideas out there. I have one of my own that I hope to start working on soon.

    Thank for the free show, I gave it a reference on my blog recently. :-)
