This is why our board members rock! Thanks so much - the last couple of trips in, I've skipped the Country Sampler so now I have a great excuse to go! (This is the store I wrote about in a previous post, with gads of eye candy all over the walls and the cool long arm setup.) Both of my Viking dealers are in that neck of the woods, and the gal I'm thinking of for help is Angela from Classic Viking Sewing - she quilts like a mad woman! I have to stop at Joann's anyway, so maybe DH will go for Chinese.
I'll get the pattern info tonight or tomorrow, and see what's up. :D
