    Thanks for the quilt show. I loved them all. There was a lot of work and talent there.

    Your purchases were fun! I have lots of indigos from S Africa. Are yours really stiff? Mine were until I washed them, now they are so yummy feeling. Did they give you washing instructions for them? They bleed like crazy!!

    I have never purchased a Purple Thang but I have friends that swear by them. You should enjoy it.

    Marcia - I wasn't given any washing instructions with the SA fabrics, however many thanks for the nod regarding the fabric bleeding. :wink:
    I shall keep that in mind & yes it's extremely stiff they had a sample of the fabric which they had pre washed several times as you said it feels so fine & silky soft. :D

    XYZ - Yippee! :lol:

    Another Purple Thang owner, it was as cheap as chips only 3.00 ($6).
    I have seen it being used on a tutorial somewhere on the net & when I spotted it I knew I just had to have one. Can never have enough of these handy little gadgets. I was hoping to find a wooden Paper Piecing Seam Presser, the one's I did see were plastic which seemed to be too pliable. Not to worry I'll adventually find one no doubt.
    Glad you enjoyed the show :D
