    The quilt is beautiful! Good luck with quilting it and also learning the stab stitch.
    I love the tube method for making pillowcases. I used the technique to make Christmas stockings too. It’s great that your daughter is so excited about sewing.
    When my daughter leaned to sew her grandma taught her with a book for kids and they did the sewing on paper. They also made a fabric bookmark decorated with all the stitches her machine could do.
    Have fun with your new stash!

    Kellley, i’m a long time listener but haven’t written to anyone. i love your podcast! it was touching to me that you received and loved your grandma’s fabric stash. when i closed up my mother’s house i kept her ribbons and lace (something i didn’t really think i’d use) and now am putting them on pillowcases and dresses and doll clothes for my grandchildren, children and nieces and nephews. they love the fact that it came from “great mema” and i love that i can pass on a little bit of my mother and family history to them. keep podcasting and i’ll try to be more active in the comment department! (i listen to scientific quilter also). nancyb

  3. Nancy- That is really neat that you are sharing those lovely treasures with your family!

    Can’t stab stitch to save my life.

    The stories about your grandma and her stash are very powerful. My Grandma was very crafty, although she didn’t quilt. I think about her when I create things.

    All the best.
