sherry quilter: yes this is great for beginners but I've been buying precuts since they
first came out and they are not always true to size. That might be
frustrating to beginners. Charm squares are great for the altered 9 patch
for that reason.
A Murphy: great for beginners. They will be addicted. Nice job.
Mary Ann Dunham: Thank you M* for your series on beginning quilting. I'm just a beginner and
a very late bloomer. Fixing to be retirement age.
Missouri Star Quilt Company: @marysplan This is American Primer from two years ago. You won't be able to
find it anymore, but just shop around and find a charm pack swatch that you
like and try one! They are very cost effective and you always get something
Mary Jo Powell: I loved this tutorial as a beginner I would like to see how the rows were
put together whether as a four patch or in a row. I ended up sewing in rows
and nesting the rows but as a beginner found that alittle chanllenging.
Jenny Doan: @eatpeanuts707 There are so many things you can do with the precuts...just
keep watching and something will strike your fancy!
louveniaqa39: Thanks for this video. Very helpful
caligal1562: You are the Paula Dean of quilting! I love your videos.
ekmom76: I always pull my pin right before the needle gets to it...aren't you afraid
it will hurt your machine or break your needle?
ladygray4: Not sure why this is, but it is EXTREMELY difficult for me to find charm
packs in the area where I live - a large city! Even quilting stores have
just a few. So frustrating, as I would love to see all kinds pre-cuts that
AR Chery: I want to make my first quilt for my daughter. How many charm packs would I
need for a child?
Jenny Doan: Hi...We have had several hand sewers that were afraid of their machine, but
it gets better all the time. When you start you can use binder paper (with
the lines on) and practice getting the feel of the machine and staying on
the lines on the paper, without using your thread. I have actually sewn my
finger before and while it hurts...it heals and clearly it is not enough to
keep me from sewing. So Start slow and get comfortable and in no time you
will have the confidence you need! Good luck.
debib90: What is the name of the pink white and blue quilt with squares and
turnovers hanging behind you in this video? I want to make it, did you do
greygoosegranny: Brand new to quilting, and I love that every time I google something to do
with it, it brings me to one of your tutorials!! thanks so much!!
Bridgette M: Another OUTSTANDING lesson for me, thank you SEW MUCH! *HUUGS* .... off to
decide on charm packs now :)
sracampbell: Thanks so much for this video. I made several table runners from ideas on
this video. You MSQC are amazing!
Stacie Jackson: I just cannot sew a quarter inch seam.
ttucsok: When you sew your rows together, do you have to sew one row one way and the
next row the other way like you do with the fence rails?
RedSolitude: Hi, I don't know if you are still responding to comments, but I had a
question. Are you supposed to prewash the charm packs? If not, will they
shrink? Will they bleed? I bought a Bella solids charm pack and I am
wondering if I should prewash it or not.
Jenny Doan: I have never pre-washed my pre-cuts and I have never had any problem. I use
good quality fabric and just sew them up. If yours shrunk you will need to
cut them down to a uniform size and then you can do with them what ever you
would do with a charm pack, so all is not lost!
Linda H: Do you know how many charm pack I would need to make a single-sized quilt?
minois100: Jenny, I watched this tutorial and decided that I would make my first quilt
using the Charm Packs. A quilting friend warned me about pre-washing the
Charm Packs. She said they shrink and some of the dyes run. What are your
thoughts on pre-washing?
WDsurvivor: At last, someone who explains how to do it without fancy talk, clear angles
and a fun attitude.
SarahMSQC: Great question! Not generally. It will depend on the size of rows,and be
sure to watch for bowing.
Mandy Henderson: I love your videos! They are very informative and please keep the charm
square ideas coming. I have a full tub of them I was wondering how many
packs would it take to make a queen size and how much fabric for the
borders? Thanks Mandy
barbandscottg: Hi Jenny! I just bought my first jellyroll, and charm packs from you. What
wonderful shipping, and fast! Thank you! I am so nervous about making my
first quilt, and I have watched your videos about 5 times now. I start this
weekend. I can't wait!
ThisNerdKaty: What size did this quilt come out to being? I am planning on doing one like
this themed with Halloween fabric so I want to be on the look out for some
cute back fabric. Thank you!
ttucsok: Being new, I might do it just to be sure! Thanks! Love the site, love the
channel, love everything.
martilindsey: Ironing machine....love it!
LEORofYAHWEH: i NNNNEED a good iron... any suggestions? also, what does a good iron for
Make me up: How much???
Debbie Buckland: Thank you
SarahMSQC: @minois100 @minois100 We do NOT prewash any precuts! It has been discussed
on our forums and you can go there for other quilters opinions!! I hope
this helps you with your decision! Happy quilting!

Jan Luna: Jenny where is your circle quilt? Not the dot to dot. The circle one. I
forgot how big the circle is supposed to be? What kind of stitch did you
use? etc.etc.etc. Help
sapphiregurl94: idk why but i have a fear of using a sewing machine. i fear my finger's
gonna get stuck or caught in between the thing that sews the fabric
skyfire62: Hi! Is there a tutorial for the quilt behind Jenny?
La Canadiens: I just love watching your vidios I use to quilt as a kid but gave it up for
years and im wanting to get back into it. Im looking looking online for
tips and reminders hehe. Yours are great because they're curt, to the point
and you can see what your doing. And the room is always so well lid up ...
Great personality too.
eadonigan516: I washed my charm packs and they did shrink. Now I have to figure out what
to do with them. I washed 500 of them then ironed them. The are all
different sizes. Don't know what to do with them.
Teresa D: I have found your site and have watched them all ...I went out to buy
2charm packs and 1 jelly roll of the same material But now what can I make
can you please help....
bobco303: she is just so cute. I wish I could take lessons from her. Quilting without
the snooty attitude
Jan Luna: Jenny what happend to the circle quilt tutorial. Help.
sprucelane: who knew quilting could be so easy.
Jenny Doan: What can I say I am a wild woman! No it really is best to remove your pin
before you get to it. Thanks for bringing this up! Jenny
KateMcT: This is great! I'm getting ready to start my first quilt and I'm definitely
going to be buying some charm packs to do it!
Ingrid Blix: I've noticed that you don't sew backward at all when sewing two charm packs
together, does that mean that you are not knotting it, just sewing though?
Cindy M: Thanks for this great video. I have a bunch of charm packs - I am crazy
about fabric - but did not know how to sew them together. Your instructions
were crystal clear.
debib90: It is, but I was speaking of the one with 4 charms and 4 triangles
alternated in pinks in middle of video
Louise Smith: i wish i had watched this before i started, i had no idea that you could
buy precut squares. I've since found a few places in the uk which do this
also and it was much easier this time!
