    I have no idea how I got 2 pics up. The next one will line up better. Some of the bats look like hunchbacks. I would adjust the set indent with an extra 1/4". I think it'd be great in black, green & purple, too. I just have loads of orange fabric, Halloweeny fabric, too. I think it'd be so cool in black, gray & brown like real bats, purplefiend. Made & quilted on a 1947 Singer 66-16.

    I have just finished the flimsy for quilt for my mother's 90th birthday. It was sewn on my Black short bed 301. It's on its way to a long armer now. My mom picked the pattern, a variation on courthousesteps and the fabric herself. I sew all my quilts on the 301, I love her. I just got a tan longbed 301 that I am cleaning up now. clean as a whistle inside but horrible dirty outside and totally wrong setup for needle ,thread wrapped around bobbin race all the usual messes. (2 photo's?)

    I think something changed on QB for posting pics. If you go into advanced mode and scroll down you'll see a box that says "manage attachments". Click that and you can delete the 2nd pictures.

    I think I'll post something in the help section just in case it's a problem that needs addressed.

    Thank You everyone. I finally got brave enough to post one on here. All of my quilting has been done on the 301, 5 now but not all quilted yet.
    Rodney did you mean that we need to go to the manage place for every time we post a picture?

    Unless they changed it back already, yes if you don't want them showing up twice.
    I read in one thread that they're looking into it so I'm hoping it's fixed soon.

    So here's my latest finish. 30's repro fabrics with a flannel back. Pieced/quilted on my pink Brother Selectomatic and I put the binding on with my 201-2. This one is bittersweet. I started it when my most favoritest Aunt was diagnosed with cancer. At the time the doctors were saying they had faith that she would be in complete remission within 6 months. I thought I had more time.(Don't we always?) Monday they sent her home giving her 3 weeks, I just found out last night.
    Please everyone, let your loved ones know how much you love them today. You might not have tomorrow.

    Beautiful quilt Cari. I'm very sorry to hear about your Aunt but have faith. Don't dwell on the diagnosis, dwell on the woman your Aunt was, still is and will always be. Hugs to you my friend.

    Cari, beautiful quilt. I'm very sorry about your aunt. If there's anything I can do for you let me know. I'll be praying for her and your whole family. Who's the cutie in front of the quilt?

    Bertie's Bento Box

    Bertie has started on a Christmas fabric bento box. Most of the fabrics came from a yard sale. He especially likes the vintage Santa Claus fabric.

    Bento Box quilts are so much fun to make. I've made 4 of them, good fabric selections, Bertie! I haven't tried Christmas fabrics yet, mainly because the charity group I make quilts for doesn't want seasonal fabrics in the quilts.
