    Hi Deb here. I'm making a quit for a show in October. It's a pyramid charm (black, white,& red) Quneen .But I do not know weather to tie it or hand quilt it? I thought about machine quilting; but I have a Vik.415, and it is to small of a quneen. I know I tryed it once.It came out bad. And sending it out to be quilted cost to much. I'm straped. Any surgustions? :?

    For a show I would really try to quilt it. I think you will love your work if you really have to work at it.

    Oh my gosh, it only took you 3 days to cut all those tiny triangles? You're good. I'm cutting as I go, it seems to take me absolutely forever (and I get bored easily which doesn't help). Congrats on all your hard work so far. I'm sure it will be beautiful. Love that color combo.

    I think quilting would be better than tying.

    I sounds gorgeous! I never look forward to a fast weekend, but a picture will make Monday worth it! :D
