Today's the day because all of my readers can get 20% off all EQ products with code EQ8MELISSA !!!!

  7. As a beginning quilter I have never designed a quilt. I just completed a throw quilt and it was all I could do to finish that lol. I'll get there though and I sew enjoy it - that's really all that matters. I have yet to use anything other than a rectangle so I am going to have to buckle down and get over the fear of cutting triangles, etc and using them. ctopp(at)richhill(dot)k12(dot)mo(dot)us
