    Actually the whole thing did show up! Guess the computer did a better job of showing it than I thought!

      Cute Quilt

      What a happy little quilt! I like the idea of the decorative stitch near the outside edge.

      My machine will do some embroidery. I really need to play with that feature.

        I did all the embroidery and other stitching by hand. My machine is 42 years old and doesn't do fancy stuff.
        I am working on perfecting the feather stitch my grandmother did; she used it on baby clothes and doll clothes that she made for me and my sister.

          Wow - I'm impressed! My hand embroidery is all very simple.

            Thank you. I learned to embroider when I was 10 so have been doing it a while!

              XO Quilt Progress

              I've got all of the blocks done, and three rows assembled for my daughter's XO quilt. You can see one row of O's now. I'm hoping to finish this part of the top in the next few weeks so that I can find fabric for the borders and back.

                  Finished projects

                  The baby afghan is for a friend; it is not very big since that was all the yarn I had! But I think it can be used in the car seat and/or stroller.

                  I just finished a quilt that I started 6 years ago. I worked on embroidering the blocks while we stayed with Jim's mom when his dad had his first stroke. The blocks each took several hours to do. Only the blue flower one followed a pattern; the others I just put colors I like together. The butterflies were my favorite and the teal and yellow ones resemble some I have seen. I think it is pretty. I may use it on our bed in the camper; I am making for our room at home but I want to show it off to my family and friends this summer. It is a project that kept getting put aside when I had other things come up--lots of baby quilts, learning to knit, etc.

                        Kaye just purchased another long arm quilting machine. She had an 8 foot frame and machine (that is now for sale). She just purchased a 10 foot frame with an 18 inch work space machine. I forget the model but I think it's a Baby Lock Jewel or something like that.

                        She got it on craigslist all the way down in Venice Florida and drove down to pick it up this week. It's 2 years old and in new condition. My job now is to put it together.

                              Baby quilt

                              I just finished a baby quilt for our nephew's daughter due in July. I did this one on my new machine. Lots faster than the hand work.

                                Fast/Easy Quilts

                                Very cute. You would enjoy working with strips (they also have pre-cut 5" ones now too) and other pre-cuts (5" & 10"). They make complicated-looking quilts easy.
