I have been working on this wall hanging and just got it finished. It is for my brother Robert and today is his Birthday.
It's the old ranch at Fair Play.
It is designed from a snapshot and I kept enlarging it and then used transfer paper thru the printer and quilted it......
It will go a lot faster next time, unless Bingo chews the end off of another one of my angle patterns.

If you have a game with a link, please post the link so myself or others can easily find it. Please include a nice paragraph

I am making a Dresden plate, but I think I may have used the template wrong. Does it make a difference if I use it frontwards, backwards, right side of fabric, wrong side of fabric. My wedges are all different, with different angles. I cut the fabric while it was folded, trying to get 2 wedges for one cut, may be an oops.
I"m considering buying a Bernina 530 on sale because it's been a floor model. What should I ask about this ? Would this be wise thing to do or should I spend at least $400 more to get a new one?

I have a pfaff performance 5.0, today I went to use the lettering and fancy stitching, they come up on the screen but when I go to sew it starts but then goes it seems like it goes into darning mode. The letter will partly form and then it fills in with the darning stitch. Same thing happens with the fancy stitches. Anyone else have this problem with this machine.

I used the Frixion gel pens that disappear when heat is applied. I also use them to trace the turned edge of the appliqué pieces as they come in different colors that are useful for dark fabrics.

In putting this one together, I decided I wanted some light blocks in the center as a focal point and to sort of highlight the secondary patterns and then I just alternated diagonally the light rows with the dark rows. After that, the blocks' colors get to
