    To Everyone that helped me with the problems with this quilt, Thank you! The starching took the waves out of the blocks completly. I Do Believe it turned out pretty good. I am cleaning it now and will mail it off tomorrow.
    Almost forgot this is my first Freemotion motif quilting. Slowly I am learning.

    Thank you very much.
    I quilted on my Domestic Machine,A Kenmore,it is a workhorse. My stitching is not all even and I wobbled a lot. But I know it takes a lot of practise to do it the right way. I love doing the FM. I have a book with the Motifs. I traced them on tracing paper,cut out slits and used graphit pencil to mark. A foot called the bigfoot and just took off.

    Thank you Tirnhi, I used your suggestion when I could to use the body color for the wings and viseversa. Some I was unable to but for the most part that is what I did.

    I want to thank all of you for your nice words on my quilt. I don't get on this board as much as I want to because I just don't have enough time in a day being a caregiver for my Mother and all the other stuff like house,spouse ETC. SO THANK YOU ALL!!!
