I mostly used small brads and picture hangers. Some required a screw and anchor. It just depends on the actual letter and how much it weighs.

Just this week I had to list our family's strengths on a form. Holy hell that was hard. I love the idea of identifying values. I bet if I asked Fatty, we would have that knocked out in much less time than it took the two of us to come up with five of our family's strengths. (I know we have them, it's just hard to quantify something you never think about, you know?)

Hi Sandra - I have made the Wiksten tank, but it was for my daughter. I have yet to make her one of these, so I can't really speak to the difference in fit. I do think the Wiksten tank has a lower neckline. Erin

A couple of weeks ago, I decided I needed to sew some clothing right away. This happens to me when I have been dealing with fiddly quilt blocks or need a palette refresher. It seems so satisfying in those moments... Continue reading

It's hard to say as it depends on what size quilt and how big you make the blocks. For a 60" square throw quilt with 5" x 10" geese, you need 72. For the same size quilt with 3" x 6" geese, you need 120.

You will need 3 3/4 yards of the background fabric for a twin. Hope that helps, Julie!

Hi Katie! The horizontal lines do not go through the blocks. There's a free motion, paisley type design in there!
