           Make sure when you decide on a quilt pattern to take your time and plan the length and width carefully.and make sure you have enough fabric to finish your quilt,if you have a color wheel it will help you match you colors .
           Before you make your first cut be sure to wash your fabric to shrink it don't dry your fabric completely take your fabric out of the dryer damp and use a dry iron to press it out.
            Make sure your hands and the area your laying you fabric on is clean this will protect your pattern pices from spots ending up in your finished quilt.
             I am have a problem getting a new cord for my camera,soon i hope to show you different quilt  patterns.
