If not the fruits then a source of other biblical charaters or events in the Bible. Need five to seven different blocks to use in the border. Sure appreciate the help! Chris

No! Seriously--the quilts where just breathtaking--kept muttering to myself "look at that! WOW!"--and I wore out before I even saw everything!
Couldn't get any buddies to go with me for the first 2 days of the EVENT--I wanted to take a couple of long arm classes and couldn't be there on Friday-Sunday due to home stuff. So drove the 3 hours to DM by myself and stayed withing a block of the show. Even the hotel was a hoot! Can you imagine an entire hotel filled with quilters
Today was a busy day for me, I had a my column to write for our paper, "The quilter's corner", and then I had several numbers I had to call about our first guild meeting, and our quilting bee. So my weeks are getting shorter, class on Sat and Tue, for 4H, quilting bee on Wed.s and two guild meeting each month. Have a group page set up for our guild which I will also have to keep up, so will be busy and having lots of quilty fun over the next months' What with finishing the quilt i started
Enjoying the fall temperatures!
Your sampler is coming along beautifully. I sent a message, stating that the "Famers's Puzzle" block is very similar to a quilt our church group hand quilted for my girlfriend. We did not know the name and sisnce I have misplaced my camera could not post a picture. When it is found I will do so. Happy Quilting!!

It's really fun to make them!!!!
I just found this video on YouTube, which I feel can be VERY helpful to anyone buying a new sewing machine.
He shows why you shouldn't buy a "big box store" machine. I just felt it may help save some heartaches and wallet woes.

First we have the front...
And here is a shot of the back...

I am wondering, what is the difference between Hobbs 80/20 and Warm and Natural, from your experience?
Thanks in advance, to all you wonderful people, for your expertise!
