    Nancy I have never done a quilt as go you but like to try on my next quilt. I really like the look of it. Are there instructions somewhere I can find or a book or something on the net. Hand quilting takes me forever to do but that is what my grandma taught so I cont to do it. I think your way is better and faster. To heck with the quilt police anyway they are just snobs.

    Yep my thoughts completely and I used to be one of those "quilt police snobs!" I would have NEVER sewn a binding down by machine - good golly that would have been sacrificial - how dare anyone to even think that way! Geeze Louise!

    Oh here is the block Muv made - so cute- I love the fish trying to eat the 99K! I am so glad her block made it into this quilt!Name:  Muv's block.JPG

    Oh and Glenn, I can send you the instructions! You need to start with at least 9 - 10 1/2 to 12 1/2 inch blocks! There is a book out too on how to do this technique. I can't remember it off the top of my head. I will look it up!

Then she found a machine like hers at the thrift store and bought it for me and brought it on the airplane to me. I've tried it out but I haven't done much sewing lately.

    nancy, sorry those ol scissor where already mine, This was in the case along with what must have been all the sewing goodie this lady owned. I did put in a photo of the old dressmarker, so the deal was a the dressmaker and whatever was inside,, so with the stitcher and the dressmaker make 2 for the price of one

    after dug through all the stuff, I found this and I have been looking for one of these for avery long time, As a kid every pack of needle came with one,,
