  1. This sounds like a lot of fun. I wish I had the time to do it.

  2. Claudia says:

    Why such a short time frame? I have a little 200th anniversary of Coats and Clark project that needs to be finished. By next week.

  3. I have what I think is a fabulous idea for a filler fabric but no way can I draw and color it out. It’s something that I did a very long time ago when I was looking for a fabric that I couldn’t find….so I made it.
