    Ten Things Every Quilter Should Know

    I don't consider myself a beginning quilter, but this list of "ten things to know" seemed very helpful to me.

    http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpa...kills.htm?nl=1

    I hope others out there will be encouraged they are not the only ones who did not know all this already.
    GramMER to eighteen, plus two great-granddaughters and four adopted greats soon we hope!

    What is the rule for to wash or not to wash flannel? I heard if your bought it from a "quilt" shop you may not need to. I got mine online from Keepsake. I have been quilting for 2 years now. Thanks for the link, it is keeping me busy.

    Janet Wickell write this column and does a fabulous job! I've found her directions clearly written and very easy to follow.

    They are always good to review. I may have read the tip about using freezer paper to square up a block that's askew but had forgotten about

    I always wash flannel and dry it; sometimes I do it more than once because it does truly shrink, sometimes as much as 3%.
