    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Isn't she a great instructor? I've followed their videos for a few weeks now, and I just love them!

    I found this video also last night. I think I want to find a panel and try her method.

    One thing I've learned about panels - see if they are PRINTED more or less on grain.

    One can "straighten the grain" - up to a point - with pulling the fabric diagonally - but one cannot "straighten the print" if it is printed off-grain.

    True bearisgrey. But even if it is not printed straight it helps to straighten grain. The needle sews through the fabric better when grain is straight.

    I love the panel she used. Does anyone know if it is still available or something similar?

    Jannie, this panel is hard to find. I tracked a few down on Etsy. The fabric line is RJR Welcome to my World.
