I am new to this quilting and sewing business, but LOVE it, and have jumped in head first. You can find me active on Twitter and Instagram (@MermaidSews), I just love hanging out there to chat with my on-line quilty and sewing friends. No tutorial, sorry I still rely on tutorials for everything I do, but happy to share a little bit more about me and some of my completed projects.

How long have you been quilting? Apart from a few simple patchwork quilts that were hand tied WAY back in high school, I started in January 2012.
|My first quilted zippy pouch.|
Favorite quilting tip(s)? Measure 2x or more before cutting and try to get that 1/4 inch seam perfected.

Favorite fabric (or wish list fabric)? I love it all - well, modern fabric that is. Absolute favorite is probably Heather Ross' Mendocino Line.
|My first Flickr Swap Item|
Favorite quilting tool? My 1/4 inch foot.
|Just needs to be quilted!|
Favorite music to listen to while quilting? Katy Perry Pandora station.

Binding - by hand or by machine? Depends on how much time I have, if I am rushing, which I usually am, then machine, if I have time, hand binding.

If I'd only known - what you wish you knew about blogging before you started your blog? It takes a lot of time!
