"Judy, that sounds interesting. How do you find it effects your stitching? Is it harder/slipprier going thru that extra layer?"

Hi Pam,sorry you were disappointed, the tutorial blog you were looking for has gone into outerspace somewhere, and the administrators of this site are trying to help me find it back.You've done some nice quilts, I wouldn't say you were a new quilter anymore, with over 10 quilts under your belt. We are all learning new things to try here, no matter how long we've been quilting. As for me, I also ran a custom sewing/ drapery business  for 25 yr.and love helping those new to sewing with any problems they may have.
