    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.

    Go to and scroll down to KIMONO. It cost $10.00 ordered from Australia. I actually got my contact from the POPULAR PATCHWORK QUILTING magazine online through their forum. The designer is Brenda Dean. The Kimono is actually only about 2 by 3 inches. I increased the pattern measurements to 165% which was a 6 1/2 by 22 inche piece of material. Here is an orignal one I did first for my granddaughter.Name:  Jasmine gift of Kimono 2011-02-11 001.JPG
