Have moved to Iowa from Florida and loving the small town living. Have acquired 2 tuxedo kitties in the mean time and they are such a joy............except when they think sleeping on the quilting frame.

My cats are a joy. Found them shortly after arriving in Iowa.
Suzanne, my embroidery blocks are from Bernina's Latte quilt. I'm making it for my MIL hopefully for Christmas. I still have 4 or 5 to do and they take about 8 hours each! YIKES! The Feathered Star quilt on my page is indeed pp. Judy Neimeyer is the designer. I am looking at purchasing the quilting design from her as well to finish it off. I finished the top in February or March and it's been looking at me waiting patiently to be quilted. I have a Homesteader 17 with PC Quilter. The price was right and it does a good job so far so I'm hoping it will make nice work of the Feathered Star quilting design. I am planning to test it out on some muslin to make sure my system will handle the size of the design.
Hello Suz, I have been quilting longer then 2 years, about 5 now maybe going on 6 this year. Thank You for the comment. I just bought a Sunshine 16 Long Arm. I love it, it is quite different then my home sewing machine, but getting used to it. So glad to have more area to quilt in.
Suz, thanks for the compliment on the quilt for my Mom. The name of the quilt is Pineapple Salsa. It was in the Fons and Porter Sept/Oct 2010 magazine. There are more pics of it on my page also if you haven't seen them.
Hi Suz- I sent a friend request and meant to send along a note asking for information on your machine. If you could send me a note once you accept the friend request with the information, I would appreciate it! Thanks! Jen
