  1. I had the great pleasure to take a class from Nancy at the Wisconsin Quilt Expo in 2016, and was able to meet her as well. She was just so nice and so "regular" if you know what I mean. Connie, I thought of her as a friend too. It's like those of us who have a passion for quilting and sewing have a kinship. I have been sad all week. Prayers for her family and thanksgiving to God for the gifts that she shared with us.
  2. Kathy, I saw that you mentioned your Type A personality with a little perfectionism thrown in! I hear ya! A few months after I got my Lenni (2 years ago) I jumped in with both feet and signed up for a class through . It is called APQS Longarm Certification, Sponsored by Fons and Porter. Dawn Cavanaugh teaches the class. It's 14 lessons spanning maybe 16 weeks or so. It is not for the faint of heart! Dawn is a great teacher and she expects a that should feed your perfectionism. It is pricey --- $499.00! But, what I learned in that class would have taken me years to learn on my own. Most of the assignments are mailed to Dawn and she personally critiques them. For being an online course it is very hands on and I cannot say enough about Dawn. The course also covers starting and building a business; it is pretty all encompassing. I am happy to say I passed the class and have the Certificate framed on my wall to prove it! Look into it.....good luck! Nancy
  3. Wow, that truly is beautiful. Wish I could see it in person! I wonder when the sun shines if the light plays with the star panels. Thanks for sharing Oma. I sure hope you are healing well!
  4. I think that would be a good compromise. I feel bad for her that she did this to shirts that cannot be replaced. Live and learn I guess! Good luck, and good for you for finding a way to help her.
  5. Magnifier warning

    Thanks for the tips. The things we learned in science class really do apply in the real world!
  6. Couching foot for APQS

    Sorry, I am confused....are you talking about a couching foot to go on the longarm? I have seen them on domestic machines and they look so fun. If there was one for my Lenni I would certainly put it on my wishlist!!
  7. I have many vintage table cloths either from family or estate sales. Can't seem to help myself from collecting them! You have inspired me to try something new. Your work is amazing and it turned out beautifully!
  8. I finished my Twinkle Star

    It is very beautiful! Your quilting is wonderful and I especially like that it not "too much". The quilting completely enhances the entire design. Well done!
  9. ruler work

    Can't help here wmeek, but I am grateful that you all mentioned the W path. I just loaded a quilt where this will work wonderfully. Thanks!
  10. Black light retrofit?

    I have both black light and white LED on my Lenni. To be honest, I use the blacklight about 10% of the time, max. It only works well on specific thread colors (like white). Most often I go back to my white LED. Nancy
  11. Very exciting! Post more pics!
  12. The quilting contrasts the triangles and straight lines so nicely. Wonderful job to both of you!
  13. I love the quilting and the colors you chose for your animals. I have seen this pattern; it is so very adorable!
  14. Best Feather Book?

    I agree that a video is the way to go, but it is not ALL that you have to do. Practice, practice, practice with a dry erase marker on a vertical then a horizontal surface. Then throw a big piece of muslin on your machine and do feathers up, down, diagonally, backwards, inverted, however you can think of doing them. I never ever thought I would be able to do feathers....of course I am no expert, but I do a decent job. There is a certain rhythm to feathers; it's like a dance. Good luck!
  15. The Millie Give Away

    Mindy, you have such a good point. I know they have these contests regularly. I should just not enter and hope for the winner each time to be someone who does not own an APQS yet..... Like you!!
