    This is a design I learned from Myrna Ficken and I'm not sure why but on this one I start on the right side of the quilt.  You can change those spikes to feathers as well.  I call it bamboo shoots but I guess dragons teeth works too!  Here is a diagram on my dry erase board of the pattern. It is a continuous pattern but I don't try to turn a corner with it as I can't get it to come out right.

    This is a friends quilt I quilted for her.  It's for her grandson's birthday. The first pic is of it before I started the quilting.

    You're welcome - that's one of my favorite patterns to stitch into sashing or narrow borders. And thanks for the compliments.

    Good morning.  And congrats on your new Millie. Re thread, I'm sold completely on Glide thread and manga bobbins sold on www.bobbincentral.com. The bobbins have a small magnet that holds very good to your bobbin case (be sure to take out the bobbin spring first).  Those  threads work so well together I almost never have a tension issue.  I do have the micro handles, but I didn't use them very often.  I'm not a micro quilter as I thought I would be due to health issues.  I would be willing to sell them if your interested.  I agree with Libby to practice free motion a bunch!  I used a small white erase board on my lap while watching TV doin feathers, spirals, well anything you want to practice.  That helped a great deal.  I also bought a bolt of muslin that I could put on my machine to start with and practice what I had been drawing.  And welcome to the forum.

    This one was completed by the same friend and she did the angel with Brazilian embroidery. I used so fine on top and a poly blend batting on this one.
