I am fairly new to quilting, so here goes. The quilts I have done in the past, I started in the center. Is this correct or should I begin on one end? Thanks

Hi everyone, I'm new out here and enjoy learning from reading your messages with all the great info! Recently I updated my "tools" (hubby is ok when he understands they're tools) by getting a new sewing table and new machine. But the lighting in my sew room is terrible. Can you share some ideas as to how you light up your sewing areas? Thanks! (and btw, I have no idea how to navigate around here; learning that, too!) - Patty

My Tin Lizzie dealer told me today that Tin Lizzie is doing away with all their dealers... Has anyone out there with a Tin Lizzie heard anything about this?
What would be the easiest way to identify an old quilt block pattern? I picked one up today and can't figure out how it goes together. Free info would be appreciated. Thank you.

I used a 4 inch pantograph for the borders, turning the quilt for each of them. I quilted the top border with the panto then free motion quilted the body basting the side borders as I went.
This pictures shows the quilt on the frame with the body quilting
