    What a wonderful space! I love it and congratulations on your Idaho move. Idaho is a wonderful state; Lord willing; I would like to retire there!

    I love the Micro Quilter thread by Superior for ditching; it is almost invisible and the basic colors are all you need. I have been told the Titanium needles can cause problems in the APQS machines because titanium is a harder metal than the parts in the bobbin area are made of. If you break a needle and a piece of it gets caught it can score the metal and then catch thread. I used the titanium needles for a while but then reverted back to the regular Gross Beckert needles. I bet if you do a search on this forum for the titanium needles you will find more information.

    It looks great. Try taking photos of your fabrics lined up and then change the photo to black and white. It will show you how fabrics will blend or contrast. An old tool called a Ruby Beholder works the same. Its a deep red piece of plastic to look through; they were used alot when the watercolor quilts books came out in the 90's.The pics also help find stray blocks that might be turned wrong or in the case of a sampler, too many like colors together.

    I have an entire roll of QD Wool and haven't experienced this problem; I do wash my quilts in washer and toss them in the dryer, but do not dry them fully. I use a mixture of fabrics; but none of mine were totally of the darker, rich colors like yours. I am so sorry you experienced this; and I appreciate you sharing. I will certainly do some testing on my scraps of batting to avoid this on a quilt.  I would think QD would put some sort of warning somewhere in all their information about battings.

    You chose wisely! A 10' table would seriously "cramp" my quilts; my 12' table does at times! I would rather have cramped space to walk in than cramped space to quilt upon.

    Which ever way you go, get the LED lights.  They are more expensive than the others but well worth it in the long run.  Fluorescent gives lots of folks headaches and sometimes casts shadows.  Halogen and regular light bulbs give off  to much heat to stand under?

    Is your drag specific toward the leveler bar or does it drag all over? I found mine had more drag toward the leveler bar and raised it a bit to have more clearance and all was well.

    I can't remember the last time I posted a finished quilt photo and I love seeing all of yours. Here is a recent finish; I pieced this quilt over the past two or three years. I found the gorgeous Robyn Pandolph border fabric on sale and bought the rest of the bolt and the one coordinate they had.  My heart wanted me to quilt this thing to death; but my logical side said NO! Finish it; it goes on your bed and your dog will sleep on it!  At any rate, it is finished and we are enjoying it. I used Quilters Dream Wool Batting and a variety of Glide and Sew Fine threads; quilting is all freehand and ruler work. Thank you for looking!

    I think the Perfect Circle can be purchased for regular tables or for a bliss table. Myrna Ficken at aquilterschoice.com would know.

    Dell, that is gorgeous! It looks like you used some gold lame' and some pre-printed verses? Your quilting sets off the pattern remarkably. Great job!

    Even though you didn't put a lot of quilting on this, you chose such beautiful designs that it looks like you did.  Thanks for letting me "see" a different way to design.

    Your quilt is so pretty.  I love your quilting choices as they add a very complimentary and elegant touch to the quilt.  The border inside the light/white blocks look lacey and I really like it.  Good idea!
