If you love quilting, or just hoarding fabric as much as I do, I’m sure you know about the Fat Quarter Shop.  Because of their amazing selection, it’s one of my favorite places to order fabric online. The best part is their Flash Sale page, which gets updated at 10AM every day.  That means I…

My first attempt at using the flower stitch foot
