    Thanks for the info. Also, the avatar is pretty darn cool!
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Tate, I love the 'male' quilt and your avatar is really original too!

    AnnieRose, my 301, popped out another Spicy Spiral. It is a rusty cranberry, not pink. I wish I knew where the problem is with that - is it in my camera or photo program? The recipient was tracing the the FMQ - asking if I really did that. Yes, but not alone - that little machine has a lot to do with it.

    Irishrose, I love the colors that you picked for this lovely table runner.

    I've never been crazy about the spiral tablerunners, but I LOVE this one!! Does it need a home?

    No, it went south hours after it was finished. My second daughter's house has an open floor plan with a burgandy LR and taupe DR, so that dictated my colors. I am doing a very similar one for a Cystic Fibrosis silent auction early next month. It seems there are a lot of dark red DRs, so hopefully, it will sell.

    Beautiful! Isn't it nice when the recipient appreciates it? The colors are my favorite family--anything in the reds.

    Of course it will sell! And I'm betting it fetches a NICE price!

    So encouraging and inspiring to see all these quilts! I've been using the FW I bought about a year ago for piecing, and am now working on learning to quilt on my "new" 201.

    Ok...I give in...keep in mind that my work is not exactly wonderful, and I often don't pay enough attention to placement, but my kids love these... 1. Made for my pyscho DIL Beth on my Featherweight, quilted on Amandasgramma's long arm.2. Raggety Ann and cheater cloth doll quilt for my granddaughter made on my 201.3. For my son Ray, again used my FW.4. Just threw this one in, all done by hand, including templates and scissor cutting, made it for my mom in 1993.5. For my other pyscho DIL Nicki, I picked up the hand stitched blocks at St Vincent De Paul for $3, put them together with stuff from my mom's stash on my A G Mason New Florence treadle. Used the Mason to straight line quilt it as well.

    Pfaff 12222 I'd say so. Looks like a wonderful machine. It is all mechanical is it?

    I like your quilts Charlee - you shouldn't be apologizing for any thing!
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Nancy, great stars! I really like the colors, bright but relaxing.

    Charlee, those are wonderful quilts. The first scrappy one and the blue/white/black one are my favorites. I'd be proud to own any of your quilts.

    Charlee, Love your quilts. You did a very nice job on them. I like the doll too. I have made a lot of those and they are fun to make.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Charlee, I love your quilts - thanks for sharing! Did you hand quilt the circle of feathers on the 4th quilt? Amazing job!
