I think it's really pretty and the greens highlight your embroidered blocks. I think you should live with it for awhile before doing anything drastic, which cutting off the borders would be.

I have a tall drafting chair on rollers that I use with my longarm. I believe I bought it at Hobby Lobby and it wasn't terribly expensive. It took some practice, but I can roll across the floor...

I've used Mettler thread for piecing, applique and quilting. It's great! The right color is what is important to me.

I have a rule. I will redo something that's not quite right only 3 times. After that, I consider it good enough.

I agree with you on the titanium needles. I don't care for them. I've had a couple break and the way they shatter make me worry about pieces ending up in my machine. I use the Groz-Beckett.

I place two small water bottles on either side of my longarm and it is usually enough to smooth out the fullness as you quilt. For a lot of fullness, you may need to go to vegetable cans. They are...

I buy Improved Cut blades from Amazon and I like them. I used the Harbor Freight blades for awhile and at the beginning, I didn't have any problems, but the last couple I bought were not good at all.

I wash most of my fabric with the exception of precuts. I think if you wash some fabric in a quilt, you probably should wash all of it. Batiks do run and the white fabric will collect it. Use a...

I was accepted into the International Quilt Show in Houston in 2006. My acceptance letter said that they accepted 350 out of about 800 entries, so it seems more than half were not accepted.
