Q&A with tholtz

Cat Sultan asked:
Nice job with those! Boy I tried to watch that video. I got impatient after 3 minutes. It is looooong!
tholtz answered:
LOL! Yeah, I know, Sharon's videos are very long but she really is a master quilter, she has spent FOUR YEARS on ONE quilt! I don't know if I have that kind of patience. ;D
JBlixt asked:
Very nice. Isn't it great when those points are doing what they are supposed to be doing. Keep them coming!
tholtz answered:
Dreamy!
Wazoo Sue asked:
That's impressive!! All the points match and its flat! I'm positively green with jealousy.
tholtz answered:
One word: STARCH! Starch prevents your fabric from stretching and it washing out in the laundry. When pressing my seams, I use a little water and a paint brush to dampen my seams and always use a DRY iron. Hope this helps Sue!
