  1. I just looked at the APQS store - the SuperBob bobbins are 12 for $10.50 and the Magna-Glide are 2 for $11.95. And cream-colored bobbins are available in Magna-Glide.
  2. I don't know where you are looking for bobbins, so I can't specifically answer your questions, but my guess would be the $10.50 is for 10 bobbins. Most places do carry cream or off-white bobbins, so it could be they are currently out of stock if you can't find them. As to your second question, I did a quilt like that and had no problem with the thread shredding, but it might help if you use a ball point needle. I don't know if that's the problem in this case, but it sounds as though you've tried everything else!
  3. I use FB a lot, but my preference is the forum. Somehow FB just seems so impersonal.
  4. Each of the Bubble boards are 22.5". When you reach the end of the first board and go on to the second, you simply pick up the first board and move it to the left of the second one to extend the length. Because of their size, they're very easy to move.
  5. I trim most of the quilts I do for customers, but I trim an inch away from the edge of the top, not next to it. It makes the quilt easier for them to handle, but it gives them plenty of extra around the edge. I return the trimmed batting and backing to them, of course.
  6. It's a beautiful quilt, and I love the story. Her mom will really enjoy it, I'm sure.
  7. It's beautiful, and I love your choice of pantos for this one.
  8. I love those elephant quilts, and your quilting took it to a whole new level. Beautiful!
  9. Bonnie, I don't think I want to break up the sets, but let me give it some thought. Thanks.
  10. Update #3: The Chinook boards have been sold. I'm asking $140 for the remaining boards (2 Wave on Wave and 2 Denise's Spirals) or $74 per set of boards. Update #2: Two of the Wave on Wave Boards and the Bubbles boards have been sold. Will sell the remaining 7 boards for $244 or per set of boards at the prices shown. Thanks! Update: The Bubbles boards have been wold. Will sell the remaining for $315. R&S Pattern boards for sale. From left to right: Chinook (3 boards), Bubbles (2 boards), Wave on Wave (4 boards), Denise's Spirals (2 boards). Would prefer to sell all together for $3
  11. Beautiful! You did a great job on the top, and the quilting really enhances it!
