    This is beautiful and thank you so very much for sharing. I am an American and have a rather new Canadian friend who moved into our neighborhood just last year. They moved to the US for her husbands job and she and I just recently found out they will be heading back to Canada in a couple of months. I am going to try to make one of these for her. I am still a beginner quilter but I am going to do my best to do justice by the pictures of your quilts.

    I use emboridery to quilt with and now can't use it so no quilting for me untill I figure this out. My hands won't let me hand quilt and this is my only machine.

    How did you get it on nice and tight like that? Can you show the other side? I have one started but not sure how to finish it.

    I don't wonder you won awards with this - it is wonderful.

    You give me hope! I am a beginning quilter who's done embroidery & garment sewing and went to art school.
    BUT - I am at the 'practicing' part of beginning quilting and some of the blocks I've tried discourage me - as if I will never have the chops to do this! I try to ignore these thoughts and keep going. Your post here, with picture, is tremendously helpful in lifting my spirits about raising my skills.

    I especially love the squared-off spiral that starts at the center. I don't know what 'Dear Jane' is - I guess a pattern - but 'When Jane Was Blue' is lovely.
    I too will be quilting as I go. Thanks!

    I like to buy online fabric at connecting threads also. Most all of the fabric I purchase from them is on clearance. You can also get a quarter yard of most fabrics, some places online want you to buy a full yard. You get free shipping of over $50 orders too. Another place that some people like is:

    I used vintage hankies to made a bonnet girl type quilt. You might see it if you put in hankie lady quilt in pinterest. They are easy to work with, but I would hand wash when finished.

    Jane, may I ask where you buy yours from then. I am looking for good fabric at a reasonable price. I am limited on funds for my quilting
    Thank you

    I use this method but marking the 1/4 in mark will help perfect this method. Thanks

    I like the one above by the Dread Pirate Rogers. I just did a demo of this method last weekend. People thought it made sense and was easy. Jenny Dohn of Missouri Star Quilt Company does a tutorial video on this method. Use the math from the one above. Jenny's math isn't quite right.

    If you are meaning a table for a cutting mat......I bought two WalMart bookcases and sanded a plywood piece, 4' x 2 1/2', to lay across the top. It was still a little short for me, so I topped the bookcases with two storage containers, about 3" x14"x10" and it works perfectly. The shelves are full, and that 4' width left room for 4 lidded containers (stacked 2 on 2) 14" x 11" and 12" high. No it's not as classy as the expensive shelving, but I'm very pleased....
