The third quilt I made for my daughter
We are planning a trip to Charlotte and would love to travel around to some quilt shops in the area, any suggestions!

I have a Janome MC6600 and need a second machine. I do a lot of free motion embroidery and thread-painting......................which means if I want to just do regular stitching I have to set up the machine.

I definitely want another Janome. This will be my last machine for awhile and will give me a total of 3 machines.........

Thanks, as always, for looking!

What a beautiful show - at least until the downpour started! My quilting friend and I were on our way to Bend right before it happened.
We were able to spend the morning looking at beautiful quilts - there was a light breeze so it didn't feel too hot. I have pictures of about 50 quilts that I took.
I like to take a picture of the label, then a picture of the whole quilt, then any close-ups. Since I have the label I have the story about the quilt and that is almost as
