Most quilting fabric is about 42" wide. When you are cutting strips, it is a managable size. When it comes to backing quilts it just isn't wide enough.

Other times, I just really want the backing fabric to look like one continous piece so I've perfected my pattern matching. It is super easy. I promise.

Being an OLFA ambassador this year has provided so many cool opportunities. This one has been my favourite. I got to be part of OLFA and Aurifil's Slice and Stitch Challenge! How cool is that?

If you say to me “Come over whenever you’re ready.” I will probably show up 10 mins later. That’s too obscure for me. If you tell me to come over at 10:30am I will come at 10:25, just ask my friend Maria who runs on her version of Greek time which is typically late. I’m always showing up early
