    Thank you for this. I was trying to think of something to give my brother and his wife for Christmas. And this is what I came up with but I don’t have the brain power to try to figure it out. I can’t wait to find the perfect fabric and get started!

    Great tutorial! Look forward to making this pillow with smaller piping.

    Would love to see a tutorial making a pillow sham with a flange and piping around the pillow and on the edge of the flange!

    Your videos are so clear – as a beginner, I’m looking forward to working on your projects!

      Also – to keep it simple, I’d like the piping and main body fabric to be the same!

    Very nice video. Just a little tip that I learned many years ago – when sewing on the final back panels, if you sew from the other side, you can see and sew on top of the piping stitch or just a thread width on the inside. It provides a good line to follow so you know you have a nice tight piping.

  16. 20) Pauline

    Just found you, watched the tutorial on circle skirt and quilting.

    Thank you soo much every girl needs someone like you in their corner. I will be making a skirt from my grand daughter and for myself.

    All of my other materials are going to make a quilt.

    Saved you into my favourites. Pauline
