I had been making doll clothes for Christmas and using some old nylon pieces -- thought I had tested them with my iron, but apparently it was just heating up -- instant melt away!!!

Saved my almost new Rowenta!!!

Thank you SO much in advance!! My dad is wanting to sew this patten for his 1st ever quilt he wants to make, but I have NO clue how to begin...

My Dad passed away 2 years ago this months. My parents had just celebrated their 50 th Anniversary. They had known one another for well over that more like 60 +++++. They grow up in the same area, Mom played this his cousin.
Dad had been not feeling good and had started having pain in his feet. It just got worse and Mom took him to the ER and they admitted him to the hospital. We had just had their party and Dad keep calling to have me start their Golden Anniversary scrapbook
