    3-4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide
    couple tablespoons of baking soda.
    Scrub on with a scrubbing brush

    Has anyone used it and been dissatisfied with the results?

  5. Dresden Plate for my Mom in Law

Not one of my favorite colors but it worked so well for this quilt. The long arm was done with ruler work and I used the tutorial that greenfairy quilts posted

  6. Do you have an 'Eye for Color'?

    I usually have to have the gal behind the counter help me pick out my fabric and lots of times I don't care
  7. What kind of starch do you use?

Also, am I understanding correctly that it's a good idea to starch all fabric before cutting it as well as starch the backing before basting?
    Thanks so much!
