    Starch often during the construction process. Don't worry about starch flakes on dark fabric -- wash the quilt after it is completed, and that will solve the problem.

    Thanks, good tips! I've never used starch but I'm going to the store this morning to get some.

    Don't be in a hurry to get perfect-looking quilts. Realize that each aspect of quilting takes practice. Even those 1/4 inch seams don't come easy. Quilting is like playing the harp: it takes a lot of practice, and you have to stay at home to do it.

    Excellent tips!

    The most important thing I've learned is that if you encounter a problem, it's much easier and less stressful to fix it now than to try to fix it later. Examples: If a partial block is not correct, fix the partial block before you add more patches to it. If a block does not have the correct shape and size, fix the block before you sew it to another block.
