Machine Quilting Frustration

I have spent the last two days sandwiching five quilts (one very small). Then I quilted my two Linus quilts in the ditch. They are quite puffy as I think I have used 4oz wadding, not 2oz. It was over an inch thick when I unrolled it. One of the quilts has the binding attached ready to sew down and is fine. However having recently watched Ricky Timms' video I decided to free quilt the crazy blocks in the other one. It is awful so I am extremely fed up. I am going to clear up the living room where I have spread myself out and "enjoyed" a mini retreat while my husband is working for two days (mainly we are retired). Then I shall undo at least two blocks and will do some each day till the stitches are out. Better no quilting than that quilting. Heigho time to get on.

Hi, I noticed you are member of local quilting group. I am arranging a coach to the Bead Fair at Harrow Leisure Centre on Sunday 28th September and wondered if any of your group would be interested in any seats. The coast is £15.00 plus admission which I think is £2.00. Coach will leave William Street car park (near Morrisons), Herne Bay at approx 9.00am, time to be confirmed and leave Harrow around 4pm. If anyone is interested they can phone me on 01227 370089 or email me I am desperate to go this year and don't want to drive hence the coach trip! Thank you in anticipation. Regards
