If you have all older girls 13 and up then 10 I think would be okay but the younger ones tend to need lots of one
when I start my DJ in August as a BOM. Looking forward to the challenges

Hi Everyone I am looking for a KF pattern which is made out of strips that look like the letter"S" when it's finished i think its on the front of his 20 Quilts book. I need it for 2 baby quilts i am doing for a baby shower .
thanks in advance ,kathylee
Can you provide the name or model of the machine so I can search for it online?

I know APQS has used machine on their home site under Forums. ALot are APQS brands, but they have other brands there too...good luck!

I am still trying to decide if I should cover the arms which are plastic or just finish off the bottom and sides of seat. ??? Thoughts or comments always appreciated.

Is this a pattern that one can purchase, or is it your own pattern? I would love to make this for Daughter & Daughter- in laws for next year. I went on line trying to find the pattern , but no such luck.
