we enjoyed member-selected blocks associated with the American Pioneer

i do everything by machine now even binding. i want to know which finger or fingers you put a thimble on since you have to size them and also what kind of thimbles are more comfortable and easy to use. im planning on trying to teach myself with videos and practicing ive also bought a couple of handquilting books to help. thanks ahead of time for all your help and info.

I chose Hobbs 80/20 batting and quilted it with what is know as freehand "Terry Twist" stitching. The quilt measures 87 by 106. It is also the first quilt that I attached the binding on with my longarm. Haven't yet stitched

Also, my kitchen table is my sewing table, so...this is on my china cabinet. One last thing, all my kits have been purchased off Ebay, and I have to say I have not been dissappointed in any of them. This one was a tad different as it was a quilt as you go!! Loved it.

I recently saw a fabric on a purse in a shop, that the lady said was last years. I love this fabric and am wondering in anyone has a method for seeing in any is still around. It had a soft green background with a monkey on a bike and also cowboy and cowgirl children. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also the lady could not remember the company of the fabric. Thanks.
