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
Can anyone help me with findind someone to repair an old quilt? I bought it from a thrift store to cut up and make stockings for Christmas but changed my mind when I saw the hand work that went into this quilt!! It's all done by hand and has some minor tearing in some places.It looks old but not sure how old!

Could someone tell me the difference between freezer paper & parchment paper and which on should be used for the back of the squares on which the signatures are written? I understand it is to be used for stability when signing and is later peeled off, is this correct? Also will there be any staining or coloring effects on the fabric from using either type of paper.

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?
ty)I'm looking for small pieces (as long as each piece has an entire "typewriter" on it) of the Melody Miller (Kukko) "Typewriter" fabric. It's outrageous to buy by the fat quarter, and all I want is some of the typewriters to cut out, but if anyone has pieces a bit larger, GREAT.

Thanks so much for the help. Pictures soon.
