    I am new to this whole posting thing, so I am not even sure if I am asking this question in the right place/format. Has anyone had an experience, good or bad, with Gingher 5" scissors? In working on my Grandmother's Flower Garden I cut a LOT of hexagons. I have already worn out a great pair of titanium scissors and decided to splurge on the Gingher. I have only used them once, but am not impressed. I do have other Gingher styles and love them. Any input? I am trying to decide to see if they ...

Linda doesn't trim the corners of the flying geese triangles in the usual way; she cuts the middle layer only leaving the 4.5inch squares intact as a guide for easy piecing so that if the triangles aren't perfect it doesn't matter much.

  7. Interesting Discovery - Photos on Fabric - Big Difference

    I was shocked at the difference in quality. One is whiter, sharper, more intense color! So I had to call and order more of the first brand. The one that had the better quality does cost more, but

The perpetrator was killed. My BIL was blinded in one eye and lost the other. He has had a long road but is doing well. The government gave him a seeing eye dog and apparently that has helped immensely

    I LOVE dresdans!!! Somehow I just don't think I could have to many dresdan quilts in my collection. I made this using my Big shot pro die cutting machine. I cut all the dresdans pieces from fat quarters and the tiny bit of leftovers I cut 2 1/2 squares to make the corner blocks. I had the chartreuse fabric in my stash and truthfully I loved
