It looks to me like it began with 2-1/2" strips, and the points might even be HSTs, but the intervals don't seem uniform. Maybe it is just an illusion in the photo. I should be able to graph it out...

Anyone know this pattern?

I know this looks simple, but nothing geometric is simple for me! Someone has asked me to make her this pattern, and it is not in my files. Anyone recognize it?

Have you ever seen a JFIF photo format?

My desktop has just begun refusing to save any photo in .jpg format, instead of making it a .jfif one, which no photo editor I have can use. Anyone know where I should start to fix this? Any ideas...

Would you ever buy a machine without a dealer near?

I go back and forth constantly about whether I need one better sewing machine instead of the 3 or 4 so-so ones I already have. Specifically, I am looking at the Juki HZL-DX7, but there are no Juki...

Interesting idea! The only other thing I have thought of is to tack it. I do not have a 'tack stitch' on my regular machine, but can fake it I guess. But I doubt clear thread would do well as a tack...
