    Hi Everyone, that book is at Joannes and if you use your coupon it will be 40% or 50% off depending on which coupon you use since the books are not on sale this week. I was at Joannes last night and saw it there. It is 24.95 regular price.

    This is fun to see how my suggestion to you has "snowballed". I had no idea so many people would jump on the bandwagon and buy a book because of something I said. I'll post a picture of the quilt (Parrots, Toucans, Macaws, Oh MY!), I made for my son, when I can figure out how to do it.

    Can I just say AMAZING! Nice job. Looks like you are on your way to an all new level of machine quilting. Beautiful touch & oh what a difference those stitches make. Congratulations.

    You did a good job! I just got the book in the mail yesterday and read it last night...Can't wait to try it out myself. My first attempts at making feathers on a practice piece was far from nice so the book may be just the help I needed. My thanks to whoever wrote about the book origionally....

    Thank you Fireworkslover for book tip - I am so pleased with the results!

    First is the runner as it was, then as it looks now - I reckon I can charge a bit more now!
    After I read your thread, and saw your PICS, I have ordered this book......hasn't been rec'd yet - but I will read cover to cover and practive when it is............maybe I will be half as good as you are.........

    Thanks all - I am sure you will all be pleased with your results - let us see what you do. I am still adding to some smaller bits of work I've done, before I go on a big piece!

    Make sure you practice on paper first - drawing, drawing, drawing - to really get the motion in your brain of how you'll go. That helps the most, I think. Have fun!

    Buy a dry erase board, I have one and it's wonderful. Much less waste. :-)
