    Hope you can use the walking foot for other projects. It should be handy for stitch in the ditch or a more narrow zig zag stitching.

    This is so interesting! I know nothing about birds. Have you spoke with a vet? Maybe they might have some ideas on things you could do to help her.

    A generic walking foot isn't very expensive and might be a good investment. You have put lot of time into this so it could be worth the cost. If you...

    Thanks for sharing. It seems like this happens several times with each quilt I make. I like the washi tape idea.

    Claire, your cat quilt is stunning! I think you did a great job on the cable in the border - how did you find using the walking foot? I've tried it with both the w.f. and fmq. and thought they were both kind of hard, going around the cable curves...guess it takes practice, but yours looks awesome! You are so lucky to have an embroidery machine - you can do such cute designs! One is on my wishlist but they are quite expensive so I'm not holding my breath! I loved seeing the photos- tfs!!!!!

    Hi Claire - So what do I do? Just go to the sewing forum site and say that I'm looking for someone to digitize an embroidery design for me. If you're willing let me know your email address and I'll send you the design? It feels weird to ask for someone's services without expecting to pay them.

    Hi Claire. I commented on your lavender quilt. I just love that pattern and have never seen it before. Care to share the name of it and maybe where I could find it?
