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

Can you tell me where to get the pattern or the dimension of your squares. Thanks!

  8. Do you have good tips for making the backing of your quilt?

It is so hard for me to handle big pieces of fabric and have to sew long seams. I will check out some of the suggested places to find wide fabrics. Thanks for the information.

    I just returned home from quilt club this morning - we had a theme "something always on the table for Thanksgiving" and were to bring an item for show and tell; I brought grandma's hardanger table topper that sits on a solid tablecloth that way design is easier to see - I also brought along my gravy ladle as it is the one thing that always makes it to the thanksgiving table. Many girls brougt knick knacks that they set out - we don't do a lot of that any more.
