This article is about learning what YOUR 1/4" and i gave you a way to figure it out. Nobody should blindly use a 1/4" or guides or anything without testing to see what is actually happening. There is no silver bullet, it's about your equipment and testing it.

If you are just joining me, there is loads of time! I think we'll finish sooner than Thanksgiving, but there are parts that take longer,... Continue reading

So what does that mean, a creative Jump start? Both are filled with prompts and places to write, make notes, even paste a photos.. really I know.. a REAL photo. You can print it on your computer these days.. kind of fun to print off photos still! The Quilter's Year book & Year of the Doodle This is the Quilter's yearbook, it's not what I... Continue reading
