    Dear Jane - OK, OK I got bitten by the bug!

    Such fun, but so glad my machine has a straight stitch plate and 1/4" straight stitch pressure foot and my beloved IDT! And STARCH.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Fun fabric choices! I find starching is a must for me too; I'm partial to Best Press brand. I love the fresh crispness it provides and if your block turns out a little wonky the startch can help with precise sizing.

    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    This quilt is such a fun journey - enjoy it and don't
    stress over the little imperfections, in the end they will never show. Your piecing looks wonderful to me.

    Honey, don't you know there are no mistakes? Just happy accidents; nothing in nature is perfect nor are we.
