My daughter here from New York, helping to paint in my trailer. Got it painted and have been trying to upload photos showing where we parked the trailer, but won't let me do that.

Does anyone know of any charities in NW Ohio area that excepts quilts? I am looking for one to join or maybe start one for local hospital NICU or nursery, nursing homes, veteran hospital or the needy. I am new to quilting but love doing it and learning how much fun it is, but would like to have a good cause to give them too. Any information would be helpful. Thank you in advance*
I designed this quilt from traditional elements.

I'm looking at buying a Pfaff 18.8 longarm with QA.
I have used a Kenquilt 622 for the past 6 years and just sold it to upgrade to a larger machine - I did tiny (6") manual pantograph and loads of quilts were meandered. Loved my little workhorse, but need a larger throat. It has been my intention to upgrade to a larger machine - would love a 24" - that I can later add a computerized system to. This one caught my eye, because it has the whole set-up so I'd jump my next step

i quilted the sampler with a simple SITD and I only had one pucker. I consider that a big OK.
Then I did 9 charity quilt SITD and one with some FMQing. So I really liked that. A quilting friend gave me a whole cloth quilt and I finished the quilting on that. I had to frog and redo a little but that's ok with me. I have it hanging on my back door window. I see it every time I go to the laundry room.
This year I completed a challenge my quilt club put on. And now
