I’ve been getting a lot of interest in queen size quilts, so I’ve been working on one using the Amy Butler Love fabrics.  They sure are pretty!

So, I just started pushing buttons and figured things out that way.  😎  I love this machine!  It’s very quiet and the stitching is perfect!  I’m so glad I finally decided to figure it out.  It’s going to be a great second sewing machine! 

I bought a couple of different fabric collections in the past month or so.  The blue fabrics are from April Cornell.  Aren’t they beautiful?  And the sunflower fabrics are from Wilmington Prints.  More quilts coming soon using these fabrics.
