  1. Thanks for the tutorial, good work. I’ve been quilting for years, but not advanced yet…still trying! Love this pattern. Looking forward to the next one.

    • Hi Jackie, I take mine to a local longarm quilter and she does it for me. I hope to be quilting them myself sometime this year … I’m saving my money to buy a midarm machine!

  2. I am close to the end. I am now working on the rows. I keep moving pieces maybe second questioning myself. I will post a picture when it is finished. Thank you Angie for the step by step video. It has been so helpful. I had been away from sewing for awhile and this has been a great project to bring me back into sewing again. Love how you make this look so easy. Looking forward to finishing this project and moving on to the next.

  3. I just started quilting and sometimes I don’t understand the patterns but your videos are wonderful and help me so much!
    Your quilts are beautiful and can’t wait to make one.
    Thank you for sharing!
