    That's always the perfect solution. I always add another small border to squares that are too small. No one will ever know it was a goof!

    I have had a Q snap for years and absolutely love it for hand work. I have a small 12x12 that I use for smaller pieces, but love my large one for larger quilts. There are a lot of innovations that have come out since I bought mine years ago. Now there are feet for the back legs that tilt the work surface toward you that make it easier to work, almost like a drafting table. There are also new straps that fit on the sides that hold up the work that isn't in the frame. Mine came out before that so my work kind of drags on the floor...

    I haven't taken any classes, been quilting big quilts on my 9" throat machine and an even smaller throat machine before this one. 75 different sized quilts total, most were larger.

    I've taken the Craftsy class. Love them, but rarely sitting at my machine when going through the class. Haven't really gotten a chance to put what I've learned to work.

    I have taken the Craftsy class too. It's starting to get better for me; learned a lot from the class but need to put in more practice time!

    I collect all the odd blocks for my guild and plan to make "sampler" quilts! I think most guilds do charity quilts, also if you want to make a quilt a nursing home or VA hospital will take them There are so many out there that appreciate our skills.

    When I make quilts from orphans, I usually use a small black print for the sashing - somehow it usually makes all the blocks play together better. My first one was adopted by my niece when she was expecting her daughter - she was moving to Minnesota and I brought out my stash of quilts and each member of her family got to choose one to take with them (it would be their Christmas present that year) so I wouldn't have to choose them and mail them in December. She chose the orphan quilt and I couldn't talk her into what I thought was a prettier quilt - she loved this one - still makes me smile just thinking about it. She proved that day that beauty is in the eye of the beholder - lol

    Thanks! OK Wonder if Hobby Lobby has it...we don't have JoAnn's here but do by our house in Atlanta. I think there is a Hancock's here but I have not found it.

    Guttermans is good... and JoAnn's always has coupons available and sometimes even offer it for half price. I liked that for a while. Then I discovered Aurifil thread. It is 100% cotton, even less lint than Guitermanns. It is made in Italy, I think. I get it at my quilt store. It starts out at a highter price, but there is so much yardage on each spool that I suspect it is less that Guitermans.

    Sign up for JoAnn coupons on line as well as their regular mailing list. That way you get double the amount of coupons... and yes, you can use them all at the same shopping trip.

    I like to use Gutterman. It does not leave so much lint in my machine. I usually buy it when it is on sale at either JoAnn's or Hancocks. Then it becomes priced just about the same as W-M. I also use Mettler. I have made some pretty nice quilts with W-M thread though. Good luck on your search.
