    Love this!!!!

    1. colors you like - pretty much all of them. I have yet to meet a colour I don't like! The brighter the better

    2. colors you just can't stand! LOL - I don't like muted colours - I like vibrancy!

    3. fabrics you prefer such as Calico/batiks/Civil War/ etc - as long as it's 100% cotton I'll find a use for it! I adore batiks!


    4. techniques such as Applique/Paper Pieced/EPP/ Pieced


    I'm still learning applique (i really need to learn to slow down LOL) I absolutely LOVE paper piecing and I just tried it for the first time in January - cannot believe how long I waited to try it!

    5. what kind of batting do you use?


    100% cotton

    6. any techniques you'd like to receive on a quilt/project


    I would love to do a whole cloth quilt but it scares me to death

    7. embellishments you like or suggest



    8. Tips you'd like to pass on(keep it brief)

    When doing PP - make sure you change your stitch length to 2 and make sure you "fix" at the beginning and the end - otherwise when you tear your paper off, you're ripping out stitches (hard lesson learned!)

    9. Favorite type of things to make as in
    purses/tablerunners/lg quilts/ lap quilts /etc

    I love to make complicated patterns, but in the size of lap quilts

    10. Favorite snacks/ foods? for goodies

    ANYTHING - seriously, if it has chocolate or sugar in it, I'll eat it

    11. Anything you'd like to add

    I have an african grey parrot, Echo, a gorgeous long-coat GSD (my avatar) Kyleigh, and a beautiful PITA cat, Raylan (he's siamese / himalayan mix) - super friendly, cuddly, but the pickiest eater ever, and he keeps trying to beat up the dog (so not a good idea!)

    I love to garden, have a huge pond in my back yard with fish, and love to read.

    The ones I like the best are the gloves from Fons and Porter. The other brand is machingers but they don't fit as well.

    I love it! Where did you find the inspiration? Is it a traditional Morroccan design?

    Do you have enough fabric to add another row of blocks vertically and horizontally---I know that seems like a lot, but if you don't want to challenge your current look then it would be the best bet.

    If you have enough of the floral, it would look terrific for a wide border all around.

    Maybe add in some solids or white on white or beige on beige to add a calming affect. I've seen some beautiful triangle quilts.

    I purchased that ruler and tried it I was not happy with the block. I tried the square at the end and it turned out okay.

    I have been collecting photos so I can make the ones I want. I have a baby fox hanging onto mom's tail, a pig-pile of turtles and a coule puffin shots at strange angles. As long as I can trace, I can dothis.

    Sorry your daughter didn't like your beautiful quilt - so sad about it being eaten by mice. Have you googled the fabric you want or tried to contact the manufacturer of the fabric? Hope this helps.
