    Hi Again,

    Was this your starting point in your quilting experience. I completed one of these about 20 years ago, all drafted and pieced by hand. Which of your patterns would you recommend, if any as a starting point in trying one of your patterns? They are beautiful!

      Hi Alma,

      I began quilting 36 years ago when everything was cut from templates and stitched by hand. Over the years, I have switched to freezer paper foundation piecing as my designs became more intricate. I now love paper foundation piecing because of the freedom it gives me when stitching weird shapes and long skinny points. I’d recommend the Tutti Frutti pattern as it is a star design.
