    What is the most important thing (tip or lesson) you've learned from this "Bunch of Sew & Sews"? I'm talking about quilting here, not the friendship, generosity and admiration we all give and get from each other.

    Mine is to Starch, starch, starch!

    Enjoy your day!

    Take into consideration what others suggest. Try it. One might like it.

    Then do what works for you.

    I didn't learn it here but I learned a long, long time ago that it's only fabric, nobody dies.

    Lighten my foot on the presser foot, sew slower and enjoy it more.
    Seam, starch, press, square, seam, press, square.
    Move my finger out of the path of the rotary cutter.
    Ask and there shall be an answer.

    We all do things that are in the "I can't believe I actually did that" category.

    There are no mistakes only things that make each quilt unique. Each quilt has it's own personality, and no quilt is perfect.
