I think I'm not a 'pastel person'. After a day or so, I decided maybe it wasn't boring, it was soothing. It's off to the recipient this week. Hope she likes it

Hence, I have so many UFO's and projects going. What about you? Do you have one special pattern that you like to make? Or do you think variety is the spice of life?

Hello, All~ I am very near finishing my first quilt, and I am away from home. When I wash this quilt, it will be in my SIL's front loaer. Can I still use Retayn? And should I throw in some Color Catchers too?
Thanks so much for the help. Pictures soon.

Any ideas? It is interesting that nearly all of the problems with long arm machines are Tin Lizzie. I hope to finish this

cut main fabric 6 1/2 x 5 1/2, lining 7 1/2 x 5 1/2
you need two pieces of fabric, one main piece and one for the lining
sew 1/4 inch seam along both ends of the 5 1/2 sides, right sides together
turn right sides out and press so that
