    1. To our Chèri baker Angie…these are perfection!Cleaning out the pantry should be done more often by you ;o)Love the accompanying pics…just scrumptious looking!Ciao for now and have a great weekend,Claudia

    2. une fois j’avais rempli à ras bord mon sac de petites bougies Ikéa.ce jour là apres la classe, seul avec mon amoureuse, les exercices de maths pas effacés du tableau, nous nous sommes fait un petit moment aux chandelles dans la salle 202Dragibus et bougies bons marchésc’est sans doute le moment le plus romantique de ma vieB.

    3. Babe, is perfectly natural… you want something, you can’t just buy it off the shelf…. It is normal that you may feel jealous of others who have something you want for yourself.hugs

    4. Tengo una duda, al consumir un servicio WCf hosteado en mi iis local no me retorna ni un valor ni un error, al detener mi solucion me sale una venta emergente que dice lo siguiente: debugging is being stopped but is not yet completed. You can force debugging to stop inmediately, but any processes being detached may be terminated instead.This windows will automatically close when the debugging has completely stopped.Espero puedan ayudarme, gracias de antemano.

    5. Muon Nam,Reads like a script from the poliical sabateour Nick Le Cong, carried out by “me so” Andrew the Do Do, with a nod from Thug Boss Janet Nguyen, and applauded on the side line by her dumb white hubby Tom Nguyen. What a loser crew.Btw, Where’s the hound Quang Pham’s place in this losing lot?

  1. super wonderful Aimee…..I didn’t know you should use the 12.5″ along with the long ruler FOR FIRST CUT, then the long one……Always learning something new. You are a awesome teacher AIMEE. Love you Girl…..xxxx

  2. Very well done! Filmed well and very clear directions. I didn’t know about lining up your ruler with a 12 1/2 inch square either. I can see how it would improve that first cut.
    I’m looking forward to the next video.
    Overall Quilters is such a great place to learn, shop, and visit friends.

  3. Aimee…I am sooo delighted to see your blog..I have added it right away. I do not see where to click on to be a follower, but I will look again. This is sooo exciting.

        1. Does it matter that grandma won’t get it? I mean, Skyward Sword got a 10 from Game Informer, and THEY di&;2#8d17nt complain. Still, a good review, surprisingly from IGN.

      1. GREAT entry!! I’m thankful for you posting it! God always rewards obedience, even if we don’t “feel the love” right away. God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good!Thanks for boldy proclaiming His goodness in your life!!Maria

      2. I can totally relate to your post. While we are not living in a different country, my husband ventured to the west coast for a job after college, we then got married, I followed, we started our own family, and now our own families remain on the east coast. We love the quality of life out here, but I too never considered how hard it would be to see my girls growing up with long-distance relationships with their grandparents and cousins. Le sigh once again. You’re right…we do what we can.

      3. I think the first rule in making a particular transaction being strategy.I think our emotions and our logic is impossible without a strategy to stand in the face of At the very least the case for me.Everyone must create its own strategy, or the rules . buyserver. net/the-best-forex-trading-software.htmlWhat are your particular offer while intra-day trading strategies?

      4. My daughter & I love your banner; it is so bright and cheery! I just LOVE the paper you used & the Meljen's bunny too!I'm a new follower & glad to participate with you in the hop. :)

  4. Aimee, LOVIN THE INSTRUCTION!!!!! I get to see you any time now in Italy! lol Best to you all and I look forward to more!

  5. Thanks everyone, we are enjoying making the videos. There’s so much info to share,lots of tricks and hints.

    I’m hoping to see many of you at Symposium.


  6. Aimee, I am so excited over this. As others I did not know to line up the ruler on the side of the fabric. Can’t wait for more tips. You know I love you and the shop. Great job!

  7. Hi Aimee,
    Good video but I would suggest that you lock your rotary cutter blade every time you put it down to move your hand or are finished with cutting to prevent accidents. Ask me how I know! 😉

  8. Aimee, That was a great video; clear and informative! I will be looking forward to the next one. Please plan on doing one on squaring the quilt – something I always have trouble with!

    I’ll miss coming to your store but look forward to you online!


    1. that the U.S. is ailed by secularism, greed, selfishness that comes from materialism, but the antidote to this, faith and hope, can be imparted by Catholic immigrants. And so, as Catholics, we should not treat refugees like societal lepers and go “before those who want to let themselves be carried away by fear — and so build up walls of racism and lack of understanding — to be witnesses of a God Love, a compassionate God, a God who is Father of all — whether they ‘have papers’ or not,”

  9. I have been struggling with getting the perfect cut, so your video and instruction has given me better confidence in knowing my cutting will be better.

    To Elaine, did you see the type of rotary cutter Aimee is using? you should try one, they are awesome and you will never have an accident.

    thank you for all you do!
