    Izy! You've got it!! Bravo for the fanciest dog bed ever!! :D

    I did leave several at 18+ inches because I pictured what you said happening.

    I have so many projects going and planned--I'm overwhelmed. :shock:

I'm like you, Barnbum, I don't care about all the elaborate quilting patterns - just something nice, neat and functional, and on to the next project!
    I use to feel the same way before I got my Hinterberg stretch frame. Now,
    I look forward to the actual quilting process. It put the fun in quilting for me. I'm still in the learning stages and pretty much just do meandering but I find it very relaxing and enjoyable.

    That practice piece is absolutely beautiful! Good job. Now, has anyone tried using the Pfaff Fabric Mover on their standard machine? I bought one but have been too busy to play with it yet. Maybe this summer when life gets simpler. Anyways, The Pfaff Fabric Mover can be used on any standard machine, but if you happen to have a Pfaff you can also buy a stitch regulator to go with the fabric mover. It is supposed to make free motion quilting smoother and easier. Supposed to cut the learning curve in half. I did a store demo before purchasing and I think it is a very ingenious accessory, especially for new machine quilters like myself. Check it out at www.pfaff.com
