  1. I think it is so cool that Mary Fons is making videos to help the newbies in quilting understand the common element of quilting!
    I wish I would have had her when I was learning to quilt back in the 90’s!
    Keep up the fun work!

  3. I love the quilt next to you. I know it’s one of yours WOW!!!!

    Love my daughter to join me, but that’s not going to happen, so I’m
