    Yes. I do quilt me own. I got a Juki machine about a year ago and love it. Maybe someday I can get a frame also. Til then I just use the Juki and love it.

    Thanks so much. Had some jelly rolls I had bought a while ago and always wanted to try one. It was really fun. 1500 2.5 inch squares, but it was fun to see the pattern develop as I put it together. Thanks again.

    I love it when there is a day or two I can quilt. It happens so seldom. I decided to meander quilt the bargello. Couldn't think of any other way to do it. I am using multi colored thread. (My first time to use that) I love it, because I could not match every color in the quilt.

    Don't you hate it when your machine dosn't cooperate. (and your hubby isn't cooperating either. LOL) Thanks for the compliments though. Maybe Sunday is your quilting day this week.

    Take the time to be with DH. Life is short. We had a close call 3 years ago which made us take a second look at our priorities. He had a heart attack, but made a complete recovery. I can sew when he's at work (or when he cuts the lawn). But I know what you mean. It's difficult to tear yourself away from a project when you're really having fun. :lol:

    No pattern. I just used jelly rolls I had, cut squares and put them together. It took a couple tries and combos to get the effect I wanted. Thanks for the complement. It means alot to me.
