    I did the replacement myself with instructions that Barb sent me. It wasn't hard and I was very careful to align everything just so. I was having some thread breakage and found that I had a rough spot on my hook assembly, so while I was working on the machine, I smoothed that out with some emery cloth. All is working well now: no thread breakage, good tension. I'm a happy quilter! Really appreciate all of your comments.

    DWR

    Here's the finished DWR that I recently finished. She mailed me her quilt from out of state, and we've never met. Wow! To be trusted with such a beauty! More photos on my website, www.eocquilting.com

    How would you quilt this?

    Met up with some friends the other day and ended up taking a couple of my friend's quilts to quilt for her. She wanted me to take this one, but I am leary because i love this one and just don't know what to do with it. I told her to hang on to it for a little while until I came up with some ideas. These at 5" blocks that are paper-pieced. The quilt is probably a lap or throw size, but doing SID would require a ton of close stitching and I don't want to make this quilt "stiff". How would you quilt this?

    Vintage Double Wedding Ring quilt

    My customer picked up this vintage DWR top at a local antique mall for $60. The fabric is vintage feed sacks with 1930's solids and everything is hand-pieced except the green four patches. One piece in an edge arc had a hole and she replaced with a scrap of 30's feed sack fabric she inherited from her mom. One or two arc seams were repaired as well. It has some stains and dye transfer from being folded on itself, but she'll use Synthrapol and a mild restoration soap to do the final cleaning after she binds it. Wool batting made everything so nice. I did an era-friendly flower design, a double leaf in the yellow football shapes and CC's over pairs of arc piecing. She's in love with it and so am I! Here's a link to Flickr. Arrow right when you get there for detail shots. Thanks for looking! I'm off to MQX tomorrow and so excited to see everyone! http://www.flickr.com/photos/larech/10158175903/

    Machine Rentals

    If you go to the APQS website, it has a list of APQS stores. Some of them list their rental costs if you click on "more information" next to the store's info. I would imagine that this would be a good place to start in making a list of rental sites. If you are certified at one site, will other sites accept your rental certification?

    Albany roadshow

    I bought my machine at a road show and it was worth it. Where are they going to be in Albany? I'm in Clifton Park. Don't need a new machine though I would love to have glide!

    Circle templates

    Nesting circles give you more sizes of circles to deal with, then you can echo the circle, or the smaller circles can be use to create other designs like clam shells. Very versatile.

    Circle templates

    The nice thing about nesting circles is you can stitch to the inside or outside; therefore having more sizes of circles. Kimmy Brunner has a set of nesting circles; I've used mine a few times, but now have a circle maker. You can also use your templates to make arcs, etc. I prefer to use the non-skid dots on templates; there are many kinds out there.

    How would you quilt this?

    Perhaps use a circle template, circle board, or circle-making machine to drop a 5" circle with the center in the tiny free-standing contrasting squares. Your second photo has the perfect one--- the square with the tiny "X" would be the center of the circle and the edge of the circle would kiss the seams between each square. Circles/curves will be a nice contrast to the graphics of the tiny logs and not be dense at all. It would have a modern feel as well--gorgeous quilt with wonderful colors!
