    Talking Quilters - lets have some fun

    Calling all quilters who have made one quilt or more. Lets have some fun and teach the new quilters what they should not do when quilting.

    Lets tell them what not to do when quilting, but will turn it around so it looks like its what they have to do. Make sure your turn it around to look like its what they should do.

    I'll go first.

    - Always eat Cheezies when quilting, that way you'll have a bright orange color to go along with all your other colors on your quilt. You automatically have orange in your quilt.

    Never look at what you just sewed. Just keep sewing till the whole blck is done.

    Make sure you piece all of your blocks together and then assemble them. Don't just make one block and check it for correct size or any errors!

    Always place your ruler so that it reads upside down. You'll get perfect measurements that way.
