    Your sampler is coming along beautifully. I sent a message, stating that the "Famers's Puzzle" block is very similar to a quilt our church group hand quilted for my girlfriend. We did not know the name and sisnce I have misplaced my camera could not post a picture. When it is found I will do so. Happy Quilting!!

  5. For those of you purchasing a new machine...

    I just found this video on YouTube, which I feel can be VERY helpful to anyone buying a new sewing machine.
    He shows why you shouldn't buy a "big box store" machine. I just felt it may help save some heartaches and wallet woes.

  9. AQS Quilt Week Bound

    So excited that at the last minute I have decided to make the trip to Des Moines, IA for AQS Quilt Week!!!! I will drive up Friday after work, with my daughter, and go to the show on Saturday.

    I was originally thinking of taking a Free Motion Quilting class Saturday but since my daughter is going to be able to go with me I will pass on the class. With over 1600 Quilts on display there should be plenty to do!

    I have never been to a Quilt Show so pretty ...
