    Hi everybody! It's been so long since I've been on here, it's terrible! First, life got in the way, then I needed to make this quilt for the first challenge round, then I got a new computer, and then my sewing machine wouldn't work! It's a long story!!
    Anyways, I'm back now. I got my quilt finished and got my email account set up yesterday. I feel like I've been put through a wringer!

    I got my quilt top finished and I would appreciate your votes! and comments. Here is the link to see my Stained Glass Windows.

    I got a new machine on June 1. It's a Brother CS6000I. Problem is, when I got ready to make this and use my new machine, it wouldn't make the 8 point stars. It doesn't want to sew over that many thicknesses of material, plus if the seams are facing the needle, it won't sew over them!!! :thumbdown: You have to go over each seam, lift the presser foot and straighten the seam out!!! It's soooo aggravating. I really don't like it. I would not recommend this machine unless you have a lot more patience than I do.

    I had to take my old machine, a Singer Model 3820 up to Iola and have it fixed so I could make my quilt. I got the machine back on Aug. 30!!! Then, I started my quilt. Nothing like waiting till the last minute!

    So sorry to hear of all your problems; and not having that new machine working is a real bummer. Your new quilt top is beautiful and a work of art. The direct link for voting is: http://ck.upickem.net/engine/Details...864&i=2&m=X#SD :thumbup: :thumbup:
