    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    Very pretty! Got a question for anyone that can help. I've made a few dresdens and love them. My problem is the blades don't line up across from each other. Maybe up to 1/4" off. I've been quilting for about 7 yrs and my 1/4" is usually spot on except when doing a dresden. What's my problem?
    Never outsmart your common sense.

    100 years old is a real milestone. I believe it also gets her a birthday card from the President, at least, my Aunt did when she turned 100 four years ago. Oh and that is going to be a really wonderful quilt.
