So lovely and sure to keep winter at bay in my head anyway.

This will be fun.
I have a Janome 10000 which I haven't started using yet so want to get it out and start learning to use it.

Okay, So I'm very young and don't know very many people who do any kind of crafts especially quilt. My great grandmother did with a machine and my grandmother has tried to finish one her mother started before she died but she doesn't really have the time with so many really young grandkids around. So I need advise from people who know what to do. I want to hand quilt an entire quilt. The hole thing from start to finish. I have watched tons of you tube videos and about.com videos but not many people
Just so pleased with myself--I FINALLY got over the hesitancy I have about marketing myself/skills and made contact this week with a high school I used to work at to place an ad in their sports program for graduation T-shirt quilts! No orders yet, obviously, but it's a start! And I also heard from my LQS that she has a couple of small quilts for me to work on and display in the shop--along with my business card. The owner has been very encouraging of me and just a good friend.
Hello, I'm looking for scuba diving fabric.

After months of debating what to quilt--and whether I was skilled enough to actually do what I might envision, I am almost finished with my sampler lap quilt that hopefully will result in some actual customers! The LQS offered to hang something of mine, and hopefully this will be it. 9 sampler blocks--all rather complex piecing seemed to deserve some complex quilting. Each block has unique quilting--I want to show what I can do. So far only one tension problem--which meant "unsewing"

Our quilt guild is interested in purchasing display stands for our next quilt show. Any suggestions on a company or pattern?
