    Hello
    I am fairly new to this website and should really have put my pictures on this section. But anyways I seem to have confused one or two how my blocks were constructed, so I will clarify.
    1. Once the logs are put together, you go to the light side and do a wobble stitch (zig zag), my settings on my Pfaff Creative Vision were: Width 0.9, Length 6.0,Thread tension 4.0
    2. Then the embroidery work as done by Precise positioning, which took forever to master but I got it in the end. It is explained in the manual. For those that do not have a embroidery machine I changed my bobbin case to accommodate a wool and turned the block over, right side down! It took two bobbins to stitch it out.
    3. Then I do the featherstitch on the dark side of the block. Where I increased the size of the stitch to: Width 9.0, Length 16.0, Tension 5.0, Pressure foot tension to 5.0(rightside up for this stitch and also the wobble stitch.
    Hope all this makes sense but for those that mentioned a Bernina machine I will do some research and get back to you on this one.
    My Pfaff Creativision will do embroidery work and sewing mode too. I am very fortunate to be able to have such a machine.

    Thank you. I will send a picture of the full quilt when it is done..... I keep working at it. Sure has been a major project. For those that asked whether it was being constructed as quilt as you go. It is being constructed by the Cotton Theroy method, fold and finish. I posted pictures in an earlier email of some of my projects and this is how this one will be created. Thanks for looking.

    That is going to be a very beautiful quilt when you are done. I can just imagine the time you have put into it.
