Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Sorry, Dotty, but I prefer to keep it all in one place. If you go up to the very top, where it says welcome, my profile, etc, click on settings and you will be able to file the thread there, then all you have to do is click on that and it will take you to this thread. Or you can bookmark it on your computer and go directly from there. Or mayber "notifications" could work for you.

Sheri here is a ((((((((hug from Grandma)))))))) this is going to be fun and your fabric is beautiful
Thinking: goodness, Dot and Gardener, there are reasons why it is called a mystery and not spoon-fed
Also, I've NEVER in my life seen so many people jump on others as in this thread. "I wouldn't use that fabric, pick a new one" and when people ask a question they are told that comment wasn't about them. Seriously?!?!? Can people not ask questions? When I first asked for clarification on the initial cuts, there were some partially snide comments, but I let them go. After being as excited as I was and how I feel now...I need to do some serious thinking if I even want to cut into these fabrics or use them for another project down the road.
Some of the ladies need to remember that some of us haven't been doing this for long and that we enjoy learning. Half the fun of quilting is when you are doing seeing what you like, what you are not that fond of and what you will change to make it more "yours" in the future. Quilts are not cookie cutters, no two will ever be alike. I'm sorry if I have offended anyone, but I must say I am very disappointed.
