Now I don't normally purchase all the gadgets they have out for quilting, because usually they just cost $$ and you don't really need them to quilt and quilt well.
BUT this is one item I'm looking at purchasing. This would really be a great item also for those who don't have lots of space or...
I have been trying to catch up with my quilting blocks so Delaney (my daughter who is five) is very interested in what I am doing. She loves hand sewing patches together to make her own little patchwork "quilts" for her dolls! Anyhow, I was talking to my Mom on the phone the other day and...
