dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

Deborah said...

I'm a follower - love your blog!

dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

Deborah said...

Tutorials I'd like to see - things that seem simple to you but are difficult to me: 1) how to do the stitch in a ditch, 2) how to look at a pattern and know what fabrics will look good, 3) the thought process that goes into figuring out what would look good as a border and binding,. Are you seeing the direction I'm going in? I seem to be able to do the necessary sewing, but when I finish, I'm never pleased with the results. I stand there and look at the finished product and I think, "Why doesn't it look any better? Why don't I have the 'vision' the other quilters have to know what will look good together?"
