    I agree with the others, great video. I sent the link to my DD who always has problems with sashings and blocks the don't come together neatly. In fact I have one of her quilt projects that she gave to me after getting so disgusted with it. I am going to take it out and take a good look at it. After watching the video I have a good idea as to why she gave up on it.

    Does someone know what the 1.9 stitch length is? I don't have an electronic machine, mine has a dial with number of stitches to the inch.

    I just know that it means more stitches per inch. My normal setting on my machine is 2.2 so if I turn it to 1.9
    there will be more stitches (which also means harder to rip out!)

    I love this video...but if any of you have a serger you turn the pillowcase inside out and serge the one side and bottom which gives you a better stitch and saves so much time......thx Trish

    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    Thank you. This was really good for me. I struggle every time with matching seams. I also struggle with my 1/4" foot (same as hers). Apparently, I can not see as well and I feel as though my fabric is moving slightly. Not good! I love the disappearing 9 patch and I am going to practice, practice, practice. thanks again. Very helpful and I enjoy her way of speaking and filming.

    This is the first time I have seen a tutorial where she tells us to press our seams open. Is this the norm now? I can believe that it would make it easier to quilt but I thought "the rule" was to press to the dark always!! no matter what. Is this new to you folks too? or just me? She (Sharon Ledbetter) did make a beautiful block but was very particular about how she made it. Great instructions but I don't know that I would take that much care.

    I think I had seen the press the seam open only once before and I think it was for a particular block or procedure but I can't remember now what. I do think there was a comment about "normally press to one side but for this one press open" so it does seem to be a different take.

    I can see with the open seams-four corners coming together. I love the info on not using the iron to open them, stretching and all, steam helping the material "go back to natural". Lots of good information, thanks for posting.

    You're right, this is really well-done. I may have to try pressing all of my seams open on one quilt. It seems like this is rarely suggested unless there are lots of points meeting.
