I have the Accucut Winding Ways die which I had used before and thought it would be a good choice. The quilt went together well, but when I was all done I decided it was boring. I think I'm not a 'pastel person'. After a day or so, I decided maybe it wasn't boring, it was soothing. It's off to the recipient this week. Hope she likes it

Hence, I have so many UFO's and projects going. What about you? Do you have one special pattern that you like to make? Or do you think variety is the spice of life?

    Any ideas? It is interesting that nearly all of the problems with long arm machines are Tin Lizzie. I hope to finish this
