Lisa Bongean Splendid Sampler Block 55

Lisa says: I know I sound like a broken record but… Try starching your fabric completely wet before you cut it… Let it air dry…press it and then cut out your pieces… It’s just a game changer, try it and you’ll do it all the time…Use ordinary heavy faultless starch!

When I went to Lisa’s guild many years ago, she was working at her prior life job, starting to design and was able to squeeze in taking 1/2 my workshop then coming to my talk that night. I’ve had fun keeping up with her all these years and watching her develop as a quilt & Moda Fabric designer, and then a shop owner.  Lisa’s block tells her story, she is wonderful at all types of stitching, and constantly has a project (or 18) in progress!
