I chalked it up (mostly) to being in a quilting slump. But I am also a quilter that does not have young children in my immediate circle of family and friends and thus I pass by on all the kiddie stuff.

    Yesterday I read where there are looms you can purchase that your sewing machine is able to ride down tracks in order to quilt your piece. Does anyone have any experience with any of these? Would you recommend the one you have? Thanks!
