Yes, please. Thanks for doing this. I enjoyed quilting the first one immensely. Let's do number 2.

Debbie - Are we going to need material to cut into strips to go between the blocks when we put them together after quilting? If so, can you estimate the quantity so I can match up top and backing and get it purchased. Thanks!!

Ruth Ann -- there are a few ways to join the blocks together; one requires fabric strips and the other does not. If you choose to add extra fabric, I would buy an extra yard for the front and an extra yard for the back. This is just a guess.

I have only watched one video but so impressed with your ability to control the machine and add such a beautiful design. Are you on the west coast of Florida? If so, when I visit I would love to sign up for a course you offer; however I am a beginner. Thanks for the great videos.
