    Earlier this week I told the message board how blessed I'd been getting a new to me Pfaff and the lady in the store giving me lots of quilts to send over to Japan after my discussion with her about the one I was making...well here is mine... a very quickly stitched disappearing 9 patch that is straighter than in the picture...!
    Have had great fun doing it, just needs all threads sewn in and the binding on put on..then it should be good to go.
    Thank you also for everyones nice comments about my new machine story...have had the lovliest of weeks.
    Picture not the best already night over here in the UK

    Wish I was going but sadly it will only be the quilts...gather there has been some problems with getting stuff into Japan but our local quilt shop is managing to get some flown out this week.....not hearing so much in the news from recent days but it must be pretty awful still....hope your son and family are OK

    Great quilt! I love how you did the extra wide border and then the narrow pieced border.

    This project of yours has been spurred by your
    generosity. The shop lady was another added
    joy to this whole process. Your quilt shines
    So glad that you are having fun with your Pfaff.

    Ohh, I read the title wrong.
    I just read your other fabulous post! I missed it as I was at the wedding (in Hawaii)
    They just returned to Japan yesterday. I'm really uncomfortable about them being there :cry:
    Thanks for the kind words and that lovely Sandra story made my day!!!!!!!!!!
