    I am posting this picture only so the people who contributed the blocks to the snowman swap can see what I have done with them. I am happy with the way it looks as far as the colors, blocks, placement etc. However, if it could go wrong with this project it did. It's a good thing I've been sewing for over 50 years or I might just pack it in. Borders are wavy, had difficulty with the quilting, ended up with puckers and uneven borders. Seems like I need a roller foot but this new machine is not supposed to need one. I guess I'm going to have to find out what I am doing wrong. I had square up all of the blocks and some still weren't the same size. Since it is going on my bed for a month or two I decided not to try and rip out to make it right. So please don't try to tell me the workmanship looks good because I know you will be just saying it to be nice.

    One the plus side, I have finally learned to make good looking mitered corners.

    For those who do not see their blocks, I think that I will make a wallhanging with the ones that are left.

    If someone on the board has a Pfaff 2.0 Expression sewing machine and has done some machine quilting on it would be pm me and maybe you can tell me what I should or shouldn't do the next time. I have a king size and a double to quilt and I do want them to look nice since they aren't for me.

    All of the blocks from the swap

    Well, do you think while I was riding by on my flying white horse I might have seen a wonky seam somewhere. I think not! It looks great to me :thumbup:

    Fortunately the picture had to be taken so far away as to get the picture in that you can't see the wonky seams, puckers etc. Goodie for me. LOL

    I think it is wonderful. I haven't done anything with mine yet. Too many other UFO's I guess. Eventually I will do it. My mind works faster than I do.
