I know there was someone here that was wishing for a longarm.  It's expensive (although I know nothing about pricing these), but this blogger in Portland, Oregon, is selling one with lots of extras:

Another snowy day

what was supposedl to be a light snow ending in the morning turned out to become a whole day event. At least the snow falling is lovely light flurries. I did some shovelling earlier thinking that the snow would shortly be finished. Haha the Joke is on me. Looks a like it will need to be done again.

What kind of backing should I use?

Hey Yawl,

I just finished a flannel quilt and I am confused about what type of backing to use.  Should I use a flannel backing or a regular cotton backing.  Help!
