"I like your newsletter and always learn something new. You ask for comments on articles but give no way to do this (email address). It took me five minutes of searching to find this address. Please put it in the articles where you request feedback." -- Sheila P.
Done. If you have a tip to share or a comment please send it through the feedback link. We would love to hear from you. Thank you, Sheila! -- Carolyn
"I like the idea of a string quilt -- just to do a few squares at a time. It would be great for our children to start with. You could make it like a rag quilt, or finish it off with strips just wide enough to butt the seams together, with no bulk at all. I love the idea." -- Jeanette S.
"After reading the tips about the string quilts, I now know what to do with the cut-off corners of my half-square triangles that were left over. I can use them at the beginning and end in the corners of the string quilts." -- Janet T.
"We did a string quilt at a guild last year. Everyone in the guild made two blocks on muslin without the batting. The raffle-quilt committee put the blocks together with lattices, and then a longarm quilter in our guild quilted it all. That's another option for people wondering about bulky seams." -- Bonnie O.
"I use the old pill bottles to carry my thread in while on the road. I take the label off a cleaned-up bottle, and then punch a hole in the top and pass the thread through the hole. I never have to search for the end while traveling in a car. Also, use old Tic Tac breath-mint containers to store removed pins while traveling." -- Peggy R.
"Do you make or buy these lattice strips for the string quilt project?" -- Christine
You make them. Just make sure you have plenty at the start, because these quilts usually take a while. -- Carolyn
"I just sewed my squares together and then stitched them to a fleece back. I love it -- it was nice, fast and sooooo easy." -- J.R.
