Wednesday 6:AM windy ridge cottage,
What a lovely morning! Right now one could not ask for better weather or temp. That will change later today, we are supposed to get temp's up in the 100s for the next 5 days or so, at least is is a dry heat, no humidity as yet.
I am out side at my new patio table in a really comfortable chair, I think I am really going to like this set. The love seat, coffee table and 2 other chairs are still in box's in the garage, but I have the 3 piece bistro

OK ladies need your help.
I am working on my third quilt. I really struggle with the 1/4 seam allowance. I have the 1/4 foot, have put tape on my throat plate and everything but still have problems. We are making a block of the month. I am on block #4 and just finished it. Cutting I am sure was correct. Well the block measures 12" maybe 12 1/8 . Not the 12 1/2 as the others. What to do!!!! This block had so many seams and I really do not want to try and make another one
for anyone in the area of New Braunfels, Texas you may already know about this theft as it was published in the local media but the link to the article on karen combs blog is still relevant as her priceless quilts are still missing.
Is there a way to enlarge a quilt block on the computer?
Two years in the making. Quilted by "Stitching Joy", with hearts in corners and ribbons to the center hearts. Center hearts from Lynn, to Chris.
Completed June 2012

There are a couple types of foot controllers. One type will have a spring loaded lever that swings in a arch making contact with many contact points. At each point the motor speed should increase. These contacts can burn, corrode, and pit.

Many ladies asked what kind of pattern this is. I can't answer the question. I saw a similar quilt here months ago and thought I'll give it a try with different colors. The border is my own design. I am wondering if anyone knows if there is a name for this pattern. If there is not, I'd like to call it North Dakota garden.
