It looks nice now! It funny how different people "see" different parts of a quilt. I always wonder what my work looks like through other people's eyes, and if they're seeing things that I don't.

If you had to tighten both the bobbin and top tension from where you piece, then it's probably too tight, both top and bottom. What did it look like before you made these changes?

I've done a couple of her patterns. I wouldn't say they're difficult from a sewing perspective; it's more of an organizational challenge. The majority of the piecing is plain old paper piecing. The...

I like the first one, both for its simplicity and because the hearts are enough teensy piecing for one project. What finished size are you thinking of? If the triangle-in-a-square units finish at...

If I understand correctly, you don't want to seam the main fabric (purple, in your example).

Can you seam the background (cream) fabric? It would probably be easier to cut your zigzag edge on the...
