I have an opportunity to purchase one of these machines and I am interested to know if any of you have or had one? If so, did you like it? Over the last few years I have found this group's opinions and experiences much more valuable than a salespersons! I can't afford the LA and I am so very tired of pushing and pulling thru my regular home machine. I thought this mid size might be a good solution. thanks for all the advice and ideas from this group!
This quilt of floral and butterfly fabrics was made with the Wickedly Easy pattern available free online.
68" x 80"
Quilters cotton top and back/poly batting
A quilt shown the week of Jan 10th using orphan blocks set into strip of a jelly roll.
I downloaded it but my computer is not being nice today. and does not show it.
Per Aurifil Twitter, free to cut and share
Is there .. or does someone have .. or know of a site where I can obtain a printable copy of calculations for xx" squares = xx quilt = yardage for quilt and bedspread .... xx strips x wof = yardage for binding needed for quilt? I realize that this may be asking too much but have to try as I really need to have these handy.

This one is per 19 yr old son's request... Whole cloth, Camo on one side, solid orange on the other side & Queen size. I will be hand quilting due to the throat on my machine is too small and I have never FMQ before. I am at a loss for quilting design at the moment. I am thinking of finding a scenic sketch and graph lining it, then free hand onto fabric...

It's really fun and I'm excited to give it to him on Sunday. Please click on the link below to watch a video of what this 'toy' does. I'd never seen one before but these flexagons are normally made out of paper. This young man (who's page I'm linking) made one out of fabric.

It goes to it's owner tomorrow, where she will gift it to her son for Christmas. He has no idea she's been saving his team shirts for this since he was a little kid. He's 25 now. I wish I could see him open it! What a great Mom, huh?
