I was trying to finish up a quilt for another open house at work - and my LA decided to stop working with about 15 square inches of quilting left to do! I was doing an all-over computer pattern.

DH did some looking and cleaning, and he's going to call HQ tomorrow morning and see what they recommend, and then he'll probably be taking it to the dealer if needed. DH is quite good friends with our dealers. When ever I go there to get supplies of for a class, DH ends up in the back room talking to the repair guys.

I took the quilt off the frame, then used my thin Mylar to trace the pattern and then put golden paper over the top and traced it - so now I"ll glue that in place (washable glue of course) and finish it up on my domestic machine. Golden paper is sort of like tissue paper, made to mark and then stitch right over and remove.

I'm going to try this on my Babylock, never tried FMQ on that machine, but I have done in before I got my LA.

Cathy, it's not fun to switch machines while quilting! Sounds like you have a good plan, tho.

Baby Ivy came to visit on Friday!

Jaba, it is quiet here. Happily, I can say that once again I'm able to sew fairly straight (thank you doc for new meds!) so I've been able to make a block for Hav so here it is:

Sewbizgirl, darling photo of your grand. Here's my grand...Am trying to respect my DILs privacy but still show you something of the babe. No idea of the sex. They don't want to know. (Darling little tummy, she's just over halfway.)

Mona, hope you enjoyed the wedding.

That's it for me. Nighttime meds are kicking in and I can barely see straight. Pleasant evening EB's!

Janice fun block for H4B and sweet picture of your grand baby snug as a bug in it’s nice warm cocoon.

Macybaby no neutrals here. I had already picked your contrasting fabric then saw this at the quilt shop and it just screamed pair me with Macy’s fabric. Hope you like it, Block is called Summertime Fun

Thanks terriamn - that is very nice!

I was able to finish up the quilting using the babylock. Got it bound, washed and now it's hanging in my office until it's needed for the open house.

Janice, it's so good to hear that you're feeling better! Those meds can work wonders . Love that heart pattern. I might have to copy that one into my block workbook to save for later.

Darling tummy, indeed! This time next year, you will be playing with your own bundle of love. Pretty block for Hav. Glad you could do it!

Terri, cute block for Macybaby, with such fun fabric.

Moonrise, I would imagine you are busy sewing for the Fall craft fair season. Hope it’s a good one for you.
