    It is nice when a quilt lies flat because sometimes when we piece, we get puckers. I bought the CD from Bonnie Botts,
    she is a professional quilter. The Cd's name is "spray starch and Steam. Her method forces the blocks and border to lie flat. It works!

    That is a good compliment. I would have said thank you if someone made that comment to me.

    I think it was a compliment too. You evidently did a super job if she couldn't tell by looking.

    That's a real compliment. I usually have to use my acrilic hammer to get my joints flat. A good pounding on freshly steamed quilt square gets rid of alot of frustration though.

    It was a very nice compliment actually, she meant it is so good that she could hardly figure if it is handmade or machine made....wow that's nice. You must have had a really exceptional quilt.

    I think that was a fabulous compliment. That shows your seam work is so great it looks like a printed picture, and is well done. Good for you. I'm sure she was wishing that her work looks that good.

    I am sure this woman meant it as a complement. She probably doesn't know much about sewing/quilting and was impressed with your work. Jeanniebelle

    Complement for sure; means your stitches are all nice and even without any tension issues anywhere.

    Yes, I think you listened "out of context." Best one I remember: my ex's old aunt remarking, "You have nice legs for a fat girl!" Take THAT, and THAT!!

    Are you using a lovely new product that is a spray starch alternative? When you use that, your blocks are so flat, you hardly notice the seams, they seem to disappear ! Mary Ellen's Best Pressed. It's wonderful. Quilters even use it to starch their fabrics before they use a stabilizer for embroidery. It's wonderful !
