After months of debating what to quilt--and whether I was skilled enough to actually do what I might envision, I am almost finished with my sampler lap quilt that hopefully will result in some actual customers! The LQS offered to hang something of mine, and hopefully this will be it. 9 sampler blocks--all rather complex piecing seemed to deserve some complex quilting. Each block has unique quilting--I want to show what I can do. So far only one tension problem--which meant "unsewing"

Our quilt guild is interested in purchasing display stands for our next quilt show. Any suggestions on a company or pattern?

I made a 12" and a 14". The 14" is a much nicer size, and there was less wrestling with the fabric. I don't think I would ever do one smaller than 12" unless I used a lower loft batting. They only took about an hour each to make, so it's a great quick
Does anyone know when the JoAnn in Prince Frederick is going to open??
Back from Eureka Springs Arkansas--check out "Treasures from the Pacific" if you visit. It's a shop that has lots of Hawiian applique patterns and some pretty Asian fabrics. Picked up 6 fat quarters--feeling good that was only purchase--trying to reign in my expenses!

Does anyone know if the embroidery attachment for the 440 will fit the 635? They are both about 2 year old machines. Thanks to everyone on quilting board - I love seeing all the awesome projects!!!
My mother embroidered a set of vintage tea towels years ago--the kinds that say "Wash Day", "Gardening Day", "Cleaning Day", etc. There are seven of them with one being "Sunday". I want to create some kind of quilt, wall hanging, table runner, etc. from them for display. They are embroidered on white cotton. Any suggestions for a design? I'm pretty new at quilting and the only thing that comes to mind is cutting out the design from the towel and framing
