Thank you, Santa for finally giving me a way to clone myself when I didn't think there was a way I could carry on and get it all done!
The Compu-Quilter has been a life saver! Since last (a week ago) Tuesday I have completed the quilting part on 2 quilts, and the 3rd is 3/4 done. In true clone fashion, today I was able to sew, press, attach a binding to the big 106" square blue/white lady of the lake quilt while the third one was happily being quilted on the machine AT. THE. SAME. TIME.
I am a convert! Oh sure, I'll still do a lot of freehand feathers here and there. I love them, and it's easier to freehand that puppy in there than to resize and rotate, but for all the other nifty things this machine can do.....
Thank you thank you thank you, Santa for putting a new spark in my life long love of quilting and making me a very very happy little girl this Christmas!!
I promise to be really really good.....so that next year you can send me something that will cook, clean, vaccuum and do laundry (not to mention fold it and put it away too) for me, deal? :cD
And if THAT is too much to ask...I'll settle for a machine that can bind these quilts by itself instead! ;c)
