The top quilt, which I called Irish Stars as it was an irish chain with stars, is the first one I actually finished, in 2008. I made it as a baby quilt for a friend - it's really big for a baby quilt, but this kid was the 5th kid and needed to be able to cuddle siblings as well as mom and baby! My first quilt still needs binding. I think I need to give up and give it away.Made the bottom quilt last year for a lady at church for her 99th birthday. She passed away last month and I miss her.
My Quilt at the guild show, September 2013 It's called Rainbow connection as it is made of bits of projects i've made or pieces of fabric i've been gifted. Pattern is a variation of Now and Later that was in APQ last fall.

So forceful I have to be that it starts stopping and jumping. Regulator is even worse than manual. Help!! Dealer said to add table overlay, didn't help.

When I do radiating lines like that I use a protractor so I can space my lines evenly at certain degree intervals. I find 15 degrees work well. So line up the zero on your protractor with the point of the 90 degree angle and make a registration dot
