I know about FabricLand, Lens Mill, Bee in NOTL is wonderful for designer prints and cute stuff, but am I missing out on a hidden jewel out there? A shop that carries designer prints (Kate Spain, Tula Pink, Michael Miller, etc), at prices that aren't ridiculous?

    I usually order thru Etsy, because once I've factored

I can't use my triangulations right now as no printer ink and no $$ to get any. Thank you for any help. Happy quilting.

  4. Attempted Long-arm quilting with a template

Had a few shells look a bit wonky. I liked it though because I didn't have to roll the quilt as much as I do with pantographs.

    The fabric is Dear Stella Fabrics, Serengeti Maasai Mara.

This seems to happen no matter whether I'm in mode 1 or 2. I'm to the point where I've given up on it and gone back to doing free motion quilting with an old-fashioned foot, and
