    Hello there SusanClaire I love your blog and all your videos – you have such a calm and assured voice and I have learnt so much from watching them. I was wondering what the fabric was called that you use in this video…it is divine! The hedghogs and bunnies…just love the colours too.
    I hope you are enjoying your time in the UK – on a houseboat!!!! Lucky you…I live in Perth Western Australia.
    Please keep posting…You are an inspiration to many.
    Thank you for being so generous.
    All the best

    Reblogged this on Trkingmomoe's Blog and commented:
    This is my next block for my 19th century sampler quilt. I have been watching her you tube video since she first started them. We have the same quilting style. I had no idea she was here on WordPress. So please check out her blog and follow her.

    Hi, I discovered the above video on trkingmomoe’s blog, and really enjoyed watching it. You are very calm and informative. Btw, I think the fabric you were using in the video is Bluebird Park by Kate & Birdie for Moda Fabrics.
