Frances:
I saw this fabric and had to get it as i love "The Country diary of an Edwardian Lady" book by Edith Holden, and i have several bits of china so i thought this would make a lovely quilt.

Beautiful fabric Frances.

Thanks Gini, the trick now is to get them sewn together.  

Frances, do you sew them together with cotton thread?  I know you recommended a thin needle.

Marie and Frances, I love your fabrics. I have to ask though. Has any quilter gone into a LQS or fabric store and NOT gotten any fabric at all?

Melissa, yup that was me today.  Went to Joanne's with a friend and came out with only a magazine.  Shame on me!!!!!!!!!!!  I'm a disgrace to the quilting community!!!!!!!!!!  Sorry guys, I won't do it again, I promise.  :  ).  I have to go alone when I'm buying anything quilty, my friend was in a hurry and you know how long one can be in a quilt shop.  I'll be back there before the weeks out, alone this time.

Don't be sorry Frances, not your fault.  I should've also asked if you use the milliner or betweens needles?  I don't want the stitches to show.

In the past ive used both and ive also used normal sewing needles i dont find it makes a difference i just find it easier with long needles find whats easiest for you.

lots of love
