    Wow, I love the heart button idea. Reminds me of my little girl's dresses when she was 2, 3 and 4. Each one had a little bell sewed to the underskirt. So cute and special. I was born on memorial day, but red white and blue wouldn't work with some of my quilts, so maybe I'll use a tiny matching ribbon bow. j

    No one should have to go through a bad quilting job but there are a few out there that make long arm quilters look not so good.

    Live and learn who you can trust in the quilting world. My heart goes out to you.
    Ok, maybe it's the pregnancy hormones, but that letter had me bawling, lol

    You are a very very patient person, I would have lost it the first time.

    Seeing the back during the quilting....

    I have heard quilters who care about the back, say they have a gooseneck lamp under the frame and take a mirror and check the back periodically to see how the stitches look on the back, or anything else......
