    I picked up my new (to me) Bailey's Home Quilting Machine today!! It's a 13" with the stitch regulator and laser for stencils. All on a Little Gracie frame. We have it together and on the frame, but we took a break for dinner. I want to load it tonight with a practice sandwich, so I can get used to it.

    I am staying home from work tomorrow to play with my new baby. I am so excited to be able to quilt my tops quickly and easily. Now I have no excuses for not increasing my quilting productivity!

    to cut down on some frustration - use cotton thread, cotton top, cotton back and cotton batting... (ask me how I know)

    or two layers of flannel or some such (that works great for 'playing' around to learn... (wrong sides together - then you have some lap quilts for nursing homes when finished)

    once you get the hang of it you'll love it....

    That would be perfect - my quilting machine at the lake! It will never happen because it would take up too much room in our cottage but it would be wonderful!
