I didn’t intend to use this blog again. I have one on blogspot.com and I like it better. I am just too lazy to have a nice blog. This one ended up with half my post gone anyway. I am mostly using this to follow other blog sites. There are some awesome blogs out there and I truly appreciate them.
If you are considering a blog, PLEASE consider googles blogspot instead! I lost most of my posts on wordpess. I don’t want to bother with the whole story. It is just disgusting and not intuitive. Nothing went where I wanted it. Nice damn catagory lists but just BULL.
I have a newer blog as Quiltedheadbanger.blogspot.com thru google. Most likely not posting here much if at all. Thanks to any of the crazy quilt stitchers for input. Denby

I am piecing a quilt from the video on applique by Missouri Quilt company. I thought it was going good and fast at first. Now, I feel like I have spent way too much time on it. It is larger than the one they demonstrate on. I cut all the heat and bond going the wrong direction for the sails and boats. I wasn’t totally satisfied with the fabric I chose. I decided that I would make a different set of fabric for boats and sails. I just wasn’t paying attention. This is the 3 strips of the quilt with the first choice fabrics of boats and sails placed on it.

I finally had to order a check spring for my longarm. I barely made it thru the last satin baby quilt and it started doing mostly loops on the back. I should be getting that in the morning. I had, as always, quite a bit of help from the MQR forum. I was seriously impressed. I also contacted a quilt shop in Columbus and got a surprise. I called Red Rooster and I got help and info to do some stuff myself. I was quoted a reasonable price to have the machine looked at. I was floored since it had been a major worry for me. I bought the machine used and didn’t have a warranty or dealer. I don’t have to fear that now.

Seems that the way to post has been changed. I was disgusted and deleted all Kindle Fire posts. I wanted to have it as a side note. I seem to have lost the quilt info and photos. I may dig into making the blog useful but I may also look at using a different whole blog.
