    Also I am in Australia and wondering about the American quilting shows on tv. Are they worth subscribing to over the internet?

    Hope you can help me

  9. Do You FMQ Feathers? HELP!

If you are fairly decent at quilting feathers (FMQ, freehand, not with a longarm pattern) would you PLEASE post pics of your feather quilting here? I need some inspiration! And apparently, lots more practice.
