    The width depends on the pattern... Look... we don't have a tradition on quilting in my country. We are growing in this art from2 or 3 decades only. We need to use imported fabrics, and it turns it very expensive. So, there's not a rule... for example, this kind of fabric, Jinny Beyer, fabric, it is cut on 2 or 3 strips, depending on the pattern...

    And yes, it pretty much for quilting uses, it is sold on quilt stores...

    Your work is incredible ... I looked at your baby quilt. Unbelievable the work, detail and intricacy of it. And I checked your blog and only wish I could read your written words.

    You ,are very talented!

    Your points are perfect! I love the fabric. Too bad our screens are so small. I bet it is smashing up close. :thumbup:

    Yes, I do adore Jiny's fabric. And she is a very nice lady as well... last week I was watching a video where she was receiving Ricky Tims in her beautiful centennial house! :wink:

    I really TY for the kind words... here I'm doing my best with my broken English... LOL

    Little by little I'll be publishing my work here... but if you want me to translate something specific from my site, feel free to ask me (send me the url, or the sentence...) or even you can try the Google Portuguese-English translation... it is a little weird, but it helps... but ask, me, I'll more than proud to talk about my work! :oops:

    See you, my friend!

    You're doing absolutely fine with your English! And you know what, the more you're on these Boards, the better it'll get! On another Board, I saw a young French girl go from stumbling with her words, to getting quite good at typing in English!!!

    I ~s~m~i~l~e~d~ when I noticed you'd been stalking me too! Enjoy!!! my new Brazilian amigo! :)
