I know that some people have trouble following written instructions, so I've been trying to make videos instead. This set of four explains how to make a quilt block in the hoop.

Great Videos you are a natural at explaining things. I loved the way you were so relaxed as you did each one. Makes you think I can do that too.

Would love to see you do one for in the hoop zipper bags. I noticed a few people say they are too nervous to try making one. Maybe this would help them?
Must admit I sat with my finger on the stop button the first time as I couldn't believe what you could do with an Embroidery machine without breaking it.
My hat goes off to you for sharing your knowledge with us. Thank You.

Here are some zip purse videos - however they do not use the conventional method of putting a zip in!

OMG, Sue...….thank you, you are truly an inspiration and I will watch these and hope it will cure my angst regarding the dastardly zips!

Thank you! Would love to try this in the hoop technique.
Are there patterns for this quilt, or do I have to digitize it myself?
I do have the software for only a few weeks, so not much experience.

The design for this block will be available from my Facebook group Engineered in Stitches very soon. I have a lot of ITH quilt block designs there but they are a bit more complex than this one!

As I am getting on in age I like the videos better. Sometimes the written instructions are not as easy. I am sure for the writer as well. Thanks for doing them.
