    I searched for a pattern for large prints and found one called "Leading Ladies'. I quilted a straight stitch half an inch apart on the large red blocks, stitched in the ditch the rest and hand quilted the small roses to make them "pop". Hope she likes it.

    She likes roses, hence the fabric.

I think there will be a DVD to help set it up and I am also supposed to get the muslin leader thing. I have lots of things pieced to practice on. Most of them are UFO's and small

    thinking of putting down click laminate floor, but was not sure if you spilled lots of a liquid ( a cup), on it, would it leak into and ruin the floor.
    i put similar flooring in two bedrooms and the hall, where you had to put down a seperate under pad. the floor in the hallway keeps moving and seperating, as you leave 1/4 inch around the outside so it can float, and FLOAT it DOES.
