    Hello there. I just found some of your videos on instructables and found myself watching each one. LOL I am a 36 year old mommy of one (the cutest dang 3 year old boy you have ever seen BTW), and I want to start quilting. I bought a simple sewing machine a year or so ago and have been making simple projects (aprons, placemats, cloth napkins, dolls, pillow cases, toddler bedding for our son, etc.) and everyone raves over my items. Now I want to start making larger projects. I started with a simple quilt for my son, but “just winging it” wasn’t exactly working for me. LOL Sure it’s cute, and I know my son will love it, but I want exceptional professional pieces that wow my friends and family!!

    My first project is going to be a ragged quilt for my neices’s new baby girl due in October. THEN, I am taking on a larger more difficult project. I have embroidered squares my mother was making a quilt out of when she died in 2007. I have the squares and some coording fabric. I want to make a baby quilt out of them for my neice’s baby girl. AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING! LOL So your videos are going to be helpful. And since I don’t know a soul in person who actually quilts anymore, I would love to be able to contact you in case I get stuck or have silly questions.

    Loved your video on chain piecing. My grandmother taught me to sew on an old antique Singer sewing machine (I still have it in fact), and she used to chain piece her quilts, so your vid brought back memories. I wish my grandmother, or granny on the other side were here now to teach me all the tricks about quilting now that I am ready to learn!!!

    Thank you for sharing your expertise!

    God’s Blessings,
    Amy Jo

      Hi Amy Jo and welcome 🙂

      My first sewing projects (once I grew out of the “doll dresses sewing” age) were maternity and baby clothes – that was 28 years ago! I am more than happy to help you with your projects or get you pointed in the right direction – -just let me know how I can help and keep us all posted, okay? I’d love to see those embroidered squares. Do you have a blog we can follow?

    Thanks for coming to my blog and becoming a follower! I put a picture of Tom and me on the blog tonight. Also a photo of the garden we use to have. Little by little I am learning to use this computer. I wish we could talk more.

    Was reviewing the instructions for the table extensions, thought a clear vinyil
    shower curtian may work for the covering.What do you think. The local dollar store has them for a dollar.
    Just a suggestion.
