This one is per 19 yr old son's request... Whole cloth, Camo on one side, solid orange on the other side & Queen size. I will be hand quilting due to the throat on my machine is too small and I have never FMQ before. I am at a loss for quilting design at the moment. I am thinking of finding a scenic sketch and graph lining it, then free hand onto fabric...
I am new to all of this with very poor (20/100 uncorrectable) vision. Therefore, I quilt in contrasting colors. I have to

It's really fun and I'm excited to give it to him on Sunday. Please click on the link below to watch a video of what this 'toy' does. I'd never seen one before but these flexagons are normally made out of paper. This young man (who's page I'm linking) made one out of fabric.

It goes to it's owner tomorrow, where she will gift it to her son for Christmas. He has no idea she's been saving his team shirts for this since he was a little kid. He's 25 now. I wish I could see him open it! What a great Mom, huh?

It looks like your walking foot is pushing the top layer of fabric ahead of the bottom layer and batting.
If it's a plain old fashioned walking foot I can think of several things that might cause the problem, either the walking foot is not properly installed, your feed dogs are not up,

I just spent some days in the Port Charlotte Florida area and was terribly interested in this fruit/nut tree at our hotel. It was a solid ball/mass when picked and has opened as it dries. It is about the size of a tennis ball. Can anyone help me identify this ?
I bought this about 4 years ago for around $300. I used it once, but trying to use it today and my Bernina 630 does not recognize it. Help!
