  1. Hi Erica! I ordered the PDF for the Sew with Me Finishing Ideas and was able to save it but I also ordered 2 print patterns, Cozy Cabin and Merry Noel (I think was the name of it). How do I get those patterns?

  2. Hi Erica, just joined your site. Like you I also do knitting ,crochet, and now I’m adventuring in quilting.
    I have a couple of questions for you:
    Do you have a video teaching how to read the patterns/ pdf pattern, etc?
    What do you use for the back of your quilts? Plain white material?
    Where do you buy your colorful fabric?
    Thank you so much

    1. Hi Virginia,
      I have YouTube videos showing how to make all of these blocks. The PDF Patterns have written instructions and graphic illustrations so they’re fairly easy to read. I don’t have a video showing how to read the patterns at this time, but they’re pretty self-explainatory.

      I use yardage for the backs of my quilts, the color varies by quilt, whatever I think looks best 🙂 I don’t usually do plain white on the backs because I feel like that’s a bit boring and I like the back to be as pretty as the front! I have also seen people use sheets for their backing because they are less expensive.
      I have a video on where to get fabric here: https://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/blog/2021/08/pre-cuts-yardage-and-where-to-buy-fabric-online.html
