Well I didn't even realize I had this place. Had not checked in yet. But I see a problem and believe you have surely considered this. Are your patterns and all safe from copy cats. My cousin Johann Scantlebury has amazing talents. And many copycats have done just that and claim them to be there own. Which to me is not much hard core worked and truly exercised talent. She is amazing. I believe her sister Jennifer Scantlebury .... Has quilting amazing I'm sure talents. I have not seen her work for we are not close by any means. But I hear her stuff is amazing. Can't recall her married name. But I love your work man that is beautiful work. Blessed woman you are. I always wonder how many ideas for quilts can the world contain. Looks endless. Anyway glad to be aboard. I don't make quilts. I write sew bake sing paint. But I'm thinking of an idea just came to Mr. I should write a book on ideas alone. I would be a millionaire assure you lol. Ok I'm looking for pot holders. How to make them safe and secure. Where I live is expensive because there is only one store. So I will not satisfy her extra hunger but don't care about the customers really attitude. So how do I get started.

I love fabric--I quilt and sew! I love to write about quilting and fabrics too!
Introduction

I'm a wife and mom to four. I love fabric. I love to quilt. I love to write! You can find me in my sewing room...or at the computer thinking about being in the sewing room! I currently blog at www.aquiltinglife.com. I also write for www.craftsy.com/blog and for http://modafabrics.blogspot.com/  (The Moda Cutting Table blog). I teach freshman level composition courses and love to read great writing.
