  1. I saved the pattern every month from the BOM On the Quilt Show...and started it in 2010...i worked on it for the past couple of years...off and on...it was one of the very first quilts I ever did...and boy, did I learn a lot...I know, probably crazy for even daring to attempt it...but I didn't know what I got myself into... I made some boo boos but managed to make it work...finally I finished it this summer....backing is ready... It is all batiks and her name is STELLA, which means "STAR" in Italian...

  6. Ok, I will read all about LENNI....actually I have a brother named Lenny...so I should know almost everything about him...lol I don't know if this question belongs somewhere else but I spent a good part of the day practicing one of the pantographs on a charity quilt.... Lucie is making a funny grinding noise evert time I start quilting after coming to a point...not smooth at all...seemed to be on the table fine...not as bad in manual...also, in SR mode when I stop the needle will still do some more up/downs...doesnot come to a full stop...should it?
