  1. New to quilting! And just started watching your show.
    I am fascinated by a dress worn on one of the episodes! It was 2 colors separated diagonally with a chartreuse green on the top and a darker color on the bottom-brown, navy?.
    The sleeves were asymmetrical one side being long sleeves appearing set in and the other draped.
    I did learn about the 9 patch and the ‘garden’ quilt
    But I would really like more information on that dress!!!
    Thank you
