  1. Thank you Joanne! Great tips and love the idea of using the silk thread. Never occurred to me! Appreciate all the tips.

  2. Joanne – you are the best!! I have read about the starch method and tried it, but it was a starchy mess! It was so nice to see you demonstrate exactly how it works. I love this method! Thank you for your inspiration.

  3. Great applique video. My favorite so far. I don't do or like applique . . . but I can't wait to try this method. Thanks.

  4. I'm a notion's girl. So my favorite video was Joanna's Favorite Notions & Quilting Tips. Thanks to this video, I see at least two more notions I must get and try. Thanks for the informative videos Joanna & FQS.

  5. I love this video. I never used the starch method but I will definitely try it. Your teaching was awesome and very informative. Thanks Joanne and Kimberly:)
