I'm amazed that tree branches seem to have all the ice and snow on them that they did after the storms on Sunday!  Temperatures are still so low that nearly nothing has melted!  Streets are clear because they were salted and plowed, but the dense fog has kept a lot of people from venturing out. I really want to drive down to the Warehouse, but the idea of driving on Towanda Barnes Road is quite a deterrent.

Thanks, Judy!  My pointing to Pinterest is just so one can see all the "eye candy," that shows the great variety of ways the sections of the quilt can be put together, or even the difference one's color/fabric choices make. For as easy as it is, it can be quite an impressive little quilt!

What a great idea!  I'm sure it was happily accepted!

I  use 5# weights.  Way easier when trying to cut long strips.  Taught my little sewing student this trick from the get-go of our lessons. I saw it somewhere online several years ago too.  Great helper.

wowsa!  I just tried this with a metal ruler cutting a long strip of foam core.  My one big art accident was cutting with an exacto knife 40 years ago and I'm always nervous, especially cutting a long (48") piece.  It was amazing.  I just laid it on the end of the metal ruler like a 3rd hand - no movement or pivoting at all.  If it keeps a narrow metal ruler still while cutting with an exacto it will be amazing for rotary I'm sure.  Now I want to cut up some fabric!

I love Jordan Fabrics.  Been using my 5 lb weights for some years now. Finally they are getting used for something.... LOL  Love the video's too.

I've always had good service when ordering either fabric or patterns from this company.
