My Favorite block has become the Carpentar's Star or Wheel. I've done is as the one block supersize or multiple.
My favorite fabic is cotton florals in more earthy tones
My favorite technique is quilting in sections. I like to try a variety of piecing techniques but when it comes time to put it together I like to do it in sections. The book Block by Block has a great method.
Log Cabins, Stars, One Block Wonders, Lap Quilting.
Finishing, differents types of binding, Sawtooth, curved, bias etc. Need demos for these.
I have found the Fons and Porter clips very helpful, love the videos. Also love eveerything on QNN.tv.com.
Thanks so much, everyone! Appreciate your thoughtful responses. We now have some good lists ready to go for the new gallery (coming soon!)
I love quilting so much that I like everything. I know -- BIG HELP!
