    :-D :-D :-D Ever try to quilt a king sized quilt in a small little sardine can of a sewing space???? Well here are two pictures of what I'm doing and I have 1/4 rth of it almost done. I can't get to the very center of the quilt so that part will be hand quilted. Enjoy. I'm doing a cable and lazy feather design on the background and will find some thing for the borders. Huggies, Fay

    It's coming out even more beautiful! It's been a great journey and I guess it's almost over!

    I understand your frustration. I had 7 1/4" on my Pfaff and the lever was on the side instead of the back. What you have done looks great. I like the combination of machine and hand.

    More power to you. When I quilt on my small machine I only do random patterns, never anything as complicated as what you are doing. Can't wait to see it completed!
    peace :D

    I think I will use painters tape and tape the bloomin' stencil down to the quilt before I mark it to hold it in place. I found it slides a little bit when I mark it. So far it is comming out fine. Doesn't hurt to try to get it quilted. I don't know any long armers and that is quite expensive any how. Sooooo I'll just quilt it myself and maybe if I ever get rich and famous,,, I'll get a long arm. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay

    I hope if I ever get my medallion starburst put together that I will be able to quilt it. I had to take it apart in the center because it wouldn't lay flat-so I am going to try again-the pic is my avatar

    :-D :-D :-D It's pretty,, mine is quilted, but have to fix it here and there and then I can give it to my sister. She wanted to buy it from me so I decided to give it to her for her birthday which was July 11th. I just have to finsh it, but working on my glacier star quilt top now and I want to get that done since I'm on a roll. When I put a star together I'm always afraid of it volcanoing on me. I've got the star part of my glacier star sewn together and it did not volcano on me and I'm so happy about that. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay
