I just happened to notice your comment in Bernina Users about embroidering quilt blocks. I have done this and you do need to cut your fabric larger and trim down later. You'll find it easier to trim up the blocks if you have sandpaper fabric grips on the ruler to keep it from shifting. You also need to press down firmly on the ruler and then cut. Are you using a square ruler?

I can relate to that statement. I am sure when the time is right, you will do what you need to do. I too have a full plate with quilting, teaching, gardening, and a thousand other tasks. On one task I need to do less of is...................time on the computer. LOL

I have not had time to stop and talk to the quilt lady yet. My hubby went back to Australia to work and it's garden time here in South Mississippi. So, we are planting a fair-sized garden, and I am trying to have his new BIG truck serviced. Where does the time go? I KNOW there are not enough hours in a day!

Thank the Lord!! Now I will finally be able to see some of my pretty tops actually being enjoyed! I understand about the email. There are a lot of weird people in this world who actually enjoy destroying others' personal items, such as computers. We just replaced this one about 2 weeks ago. I accepted the friend request. Thanks for all you have done to help me with my quilt tops!

Thanks for responding Chris. Yes, I would be willing to ship to Canada. I understand about giving out her info. That's fine. If you would see if she would take on some quilt tops, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!
