    beginners would do well, they're really easy, but I did feel they over used the amount of fabric that the pattern could really be made for.

    I have the pineapple foldy stuff pattern and it is very easy. I will have to dig it out tho to see if I still have the instructions. I am sure I do and will be glad to fax or mail to you. It is time consuming but very pretty. I am not sure how to quilt it tho. Anybody know? I have only made small stuff not a quilt and I did not use any batting.

    I'm wondering how they quilted Log Cabins and the Pineapple variation way back in the olden days. Did they really quilt them or simply tie them. People seem to be wondering a lot about quilting the Donna Poster ones. Does anybody know? 8-)

    A friend did the log cabin it turned out very pretty. You sure don't need any batting with a foldy quilt.

She says just jump right in and it'll work out for you. Not for this kid, sorry. :roll:
    I think my video tutorial is so easy that a monkey could watch it (but not make it). Here is a link to my video showing Donna Poster making her "Foldy Stuff." Very fun to watch, only five minutes long, but shows the sewing process from two angles so you can always see what's going on. Have fun. Here's the link:
