Quilting with Miyagi

The place holder

My mother (Miyagi in this case) is a master quilter. It was time she passed the knowledge down to “Denason.” We started with a simple block pattern and three different types of fabrics. Quilting is best learned in a 1-on-1 setting. Check out classes that may be offered at your local fabric store. I did learn that a “mouse” is a piece of scrap fabric that you use as a placeholder between sewing quilt squares so you don’t have to lift up the presser foot.
