    I liked the tips you have shown in this video. I am new to quilting and you have shown me how to organize the way I sew. Very good advice. Thank you for sharing, I definitely will use your methods.

    I just want to say that I am so happy to see that someone else uses Janome. I LOVE mine! That said, I knew about the starter piece, but never occurred to me, to use them to separate the blocks, or to end with one, ready for the next string. I also like the idea of lining everything up on the ruler, to take to the machine. Thanks for a great video, and tips on time-savers.

    Thank you for the “thread saver” tips – very helpful! Can’t wait to start making my “chain” of blocks. I was recently given a bunch of old house dresses from the ’50s – very retro fabric – I’ve cut them up and am making my next quilt from those. Great job!
