After several days, I have finally finished the cabinet for my 301A. When I picked it up from the seller, most of the finished and varnish had peeled away after being stored in the garage for over 1 year. I scraped the peeling varnish off and used a vintage furniture restorer to remove the rest. I sanded the cabinet, remeoved the cobwebs and applied a golden pecan stain to it. I like the final result but that one drawer (the lighter one) needs some more work. I worked to remove the prior finished

I'm sorry that this chart is so huge! It didn't look that big on my computer. I don't measure so well in pixels!! Sorry....
Does anyone know how clear the picture is on the monitor of the Bobbincam? I have checked out everything I can find on it and can't really tell how good the picture is. I am considering purchasing the Bobbincam or the A Quilter's Eye. I'm not sure which one would be better. Thanks
I am inspired!
I spent several hours at this quilt show. This guild has many very gifted quilters. The quilts that were on display at this quilt show were absolutely beautiful!
There were quite a few vendors in the lobby area of the church and it was fun to browse and shop at them. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
I took lots of pictures so I can go back and enjoy them and get inspiration from them - there are so many more ideas for quilts running
I hope I am doing this right as this is my first time. I am looking for a childrens quilting contest. Anyone out there know of one ?

I have recently purchased the Pfaff 4.0 Expressions. I also purchased the additional foot for quilting which they call a darning or FMQ foot. The one that came with the machine is a small transparent one, not great visibility. You have to set the machine to sensormatic for this.

As I sit in a doctor's office, during ball games, anytime there is "down" time, I have these little things to trace on leftover WonderUnder then fuse to scraps from my large applique quilts and leftover Peltex from making children's activity books. I sit there and cut as fast as I can leaving colorful wastebaskets behind. It is fun to watch those who sit nearby watching the scissors fly from over
