Putting aside catastrophe for a little while, I'd like to introduce my new friend Millie:
Stitch Chicks Quilt Shop. I took the certification class last night and am totally in love!!
Here is the little wallhanging I used for the class:
We had a little difficulty getting going, but it turned out the thread was bad, once replaced, it was smooth sailing! This machine is heavenly! The whole thing glides around with a feather touch, and you can do freeform designs (that's what I did) or set up the pantagraph in the back to copy images and patterns with laser guidance! (That's another class that I'm looking forward to!)
I love the look of the back of this project so much that I want to try a whole cloth quilt down the line. My first date to work on my own is in the first week of November and I'll quilt my Shadowbox quilt. I'll post a picture when it's done.
