    The site also has alternative ways to change up the look a bit and links to pictures of other quilts made with this pattern. Overall, a very elegant design...reminds me of stained glass! Too nice of a pattern to not share...enjoy!

    5 out of 6 bicycle shops I've been into carry "Finish Line" products instead of tri-flow, and claim they're better.

    Each time, I've told them I'm looking for tri-flow specifically and didn't know if the FL products are SM friendly.

    I finally found one shop that carries the oil, 2oz bottle

Somehow I forgot to turn 2 of them. *sigh* I'm NOT going to do them again! Re-drafted H9 to make it like Jane's original according to the full picture of the quilt. Thanks for enjoying! Here are H4 & 5, H8 & 9.

  5. Featherweight Sewing Table

    by , 10-24-2012 at 11:13 PM
    A good friend of mine gave me a copy of an ad on craigslist for a Featherweight table. I called the lady the next morning and made an appointment to meet her that afternoon.

    It is beautiful! She has moved from a house to living in an apartment with her son and she had it all packed up. She had it wrapped in bubble wrap and a cardboard box built around it. She then stuffed any empty areas with crumpled newspaper. It was very protected.

    It was like Christmas morning ...

Maybe a little yellow -but what does that matter - I can assure you that at my picture is very inferior. The colors are beautiful. He knew I would care for it. He actually gave me two. One needs repairs where piecing threads have broken. I promised I would fix it and return to him. We have several family members

  8. Stitch in the Ditch or all over Meander?

    by , 10-24-2012 at 11:21 AM
    Hey everyone,

    I am a new quilter, 21 years old and I'm trying to teach myself how to quilt. I have attached an image of the quilt I am working on (it's a car seat quilt) for my God child that is due this December! Please let me know whether you think I should use a stitch in the ditch technique or an all over stipple stitch. Thanks for your input! It's much appreciated!

  10. Has anyone ever used the creative feet for their sewing machines?

    by , 10-23-2012 at 11:47 AM
    I just received my creative feet in the mail. I purchased the bead and pearls and piping one, the sequin one, the satin edge one and then one that is an accessory for the sequin one. Just wanted to know if anyone has used them before and how they work.
