    Hi everyone,
    I posted a few weeks ago about my D4P and needing motivation to finish it. Well, here it is. Finally done...I have to admit that I like it now!
    This is the first one I have quilted with a pantogram as well. I also posted about how my machine was bouncing around and the laser moving alot...even with those problems, it still turned out nice.
    This quilt will be given to my sister-n-law and her husband. they are still in Germany and will be retiring from service this year. They purchased a house in our neighborhood, sight unseen, except through us and our opinion. My plan is to have the quilt draped over the small wall as you walk in the door, to surprise them for a house warming gift. It will be the first time they see the house and the quilt.
    Wish me luck that they actually like BOTH :lol: :lol:

    Close up of pantogram waves..See how choppy the waves are? That is because of the bouncing, I think???

    I don't know about the house (although I'm sure you did a fine job of finding one for them), but I know they will love the quilt. And what a neat surprise to have it there when they walk through the door.

    Thanks. It was really tough to finish from the start. Now I am glad I did finish it :o) I really like it a lot. Not sure I will do another Disappearing four patch or not though LOL.

    Make sure your quilt frame and machine are level. this will help with bouncing. You did a great job on it from what i can see and with the problems with bouncing.

    Thanks :) where my frame is sitting at now is in an office in the back of our house. The floor is not level and I am beginning to believe that is what our problem is. My husband has tried to level it, but it just isnt working right. SO, today, my 4 yr old and I moved him his old full size bed out of his room and moved him into the front room to a queen bed. That freed up his old room for my sewing machine and frame ;-) His room is all set up. Now I am working on setting up his old room. The only down fall to moving to this room is that is has one window (in the corner) and doesnt have the sun light in there like it was in our office. But I am looking forward to the bigger space. And the floor is level in there :thumbup: I am anxious to get another quilt on the frame...just got a new panto in the mail today woohoo...

    I really like it, the colors are so bright,the quilting is fantastic and I like seeing the sashing, don't think I've seen that on a D9P or D4P before. Great job!
