    Barbara, I really enjoyed your live today. You are so organized and cover everything in such a positive upbeat manner.
    Loved the quilting tips and the lead into Pick a Petal for next month. Are you going to start a post for fabric palettes
    that people are pulling together if they did not buy the kit. Or even like you said you were doing by adding fabrics from
    previous bright TQS BOMs to the kit. I think everyone likes seeing what the other members are selecting. Great job
    on the live today. HelenW

      Thanks, Helen. I will start a Fabric Selection topic for Pick a Petal, good idea. It’s always fun to see what fabrics folks want to use.

    I too enjoyed todays video…
    I had also planned on stitching in the ditch to stabilize the quilt… but I thought I would sew from the center out in all directions. Do you get any shift sewing in all one direction

      I find less shifting if I work from top to bottom, right side then turn completely around to do the left side. Turn again and repeat in the other direction, doing the side to side seams. Hope that makes sense.

    Okay. I agree… but you arrows were north to south and west to east
