ID:	155950I finished binding the sit upons (stadium seats) and only have to figure out how to put straps on them for hiking or carrying. They are made from 2x2 feet layers of sunbrella material (for waterproof) and quilting fabric with two layers of blanket material in the centers.
    The towels are the first two sets I have made. They are made from pique and I used a watersoluble stabilizer on the bottom of them and hemmed them with a satin stitch.

    Terry, those are great! I know you're loving your new machine!

    And... thanks for mentioning you used prewound bobbins in your Husky. I thought I had to use their own brand of bobbin and wind my own. So I looked up what bobbin size would work. I'm in love! It's so nice not to have to wind 10 bobbins before you start a quilt. I made the easy ribbon (pink for BC). and only used part of one bobbin!

    I would not have know either, Katrina but my DD bought me a box for my birthday a couple of years ago. They hold so much more thread that it makes FMQ and embroidery much easier not having to change the bobbin as often and they seem to be almost lint free. Mine are cloverlights size L and she said she got them on Amazon. I'm about ready for another box.

    Beautiful gifts, Terry! Your embroidery machine is getting a workout and I think you are embracing all the possibilities you have before you. Your quilting on the sit upons is wonderful!
