    Thank you Ducky! I am learning a lot. The train quilt is my very first quilt. And have been working on it for sooo long. I am pretty much self taught from reading books. I had a lady in a class one day show me how to piece a block and I was off from there! I enjoy the hand quilting. My machine quilting is awful.

    Thank you all for your kind words and support.

    So Beautiful!

    You might benefit if you could tilt your quilting frame up at the back to about a 45 degree angle. I did that, by tying ropes to the back of my frame and suspending it from the ceiling. Since then my back has felt much better!

    Thanks for the tip. I might try to sit the back part of the frame on blocks, do you think that would work?? Hanging ropes from the ceiling definately would not go over well with DH! And we are moving my quilting stuff and cramming it into an even smaller part of a bedroom with in a year.

    Thanks again, Kyia
