        This is adorable Helen! I might use your idea and do something similar. I, too, am discouraged with the new forum. I thought the old one worked really well. Or maybe we were just used to it so it was easier.

        I have this sewing machine pattern and I am going to calculate the percentage to reduce it to fit in the center. Well actually I think I will enlarge the the full little line drawing in the pattern to make it fit. I have also thought about using pencils to color in the areas to look like fabric piecing, or doing paper piecing. Love your ideas for the flowers. Do you mind if I use your idea?

        I got my 20 blocks done the night before my foot surgery (no sewing this weekend!). As you can see in the close-up, .I used the scraps from previous blocks as strips in other blocks.

        I decided at the last minute to make Spinning Spools but only if I used fabric I already had. I found a few squares of patriotic fabric and went from there. I don't know where my border is going because I used every scrap of the patriotic fabric.

          HelenW - I like what you have designed. It will make a great wallhanging for a sewing room. I tried to make comment on your post but it won't allow me to. I know I have used the "Like" button but I can't do that either.

            Sandy F. Thank you. I too have been going thru a lot of frustration with the website. Sometimes it works other times nothing.
            I made the sewing machine as a Christmas gift for a quilting friend. When I saw Alex's pattern for spinning spools, it just seemed
            like a natural add on for what I did with the sewing machine. I am currently working on Color My World, still working on Afternoon Delight, and finishing up Hook Line and Sinker. So it wall probably be next fall before I play around with the design. Love being able to try out ideas in EQ8. Still have a lot to learn there too. HelenW

            Sandy, You mentioned that you are finishing up A to Z BOM quilt. I went to the forum on it and no pictures.
            Would love to see some pictures of your quilt if you have time to do that. HelenW

            I decided to use my own fabric. Some is from previous projects.

ID:	884481 Sandy F, I was looking at your patriotic spools and thought what would I do. I would probably buy a patriotic panel and put the
              spools as a border around it and display on the 4th of July. HelenW

              Sandy F, When you said you were not sure what you would do with your patriotic spools, I thought they might look great if
              you got a patriotic panel and use them as a border. Would look great on the 4th of July. HelenW

                I had not thought of that but what a great idea. I had thought about doing red, blue and gold stars on an off white border. I need to import my blocks into my EQ and play. Like you I have many projects in progress. I'm not doing this years BOM but I am determined to finish my A-Z Ewe and Me this year. I have finished 2 Tee Shirts so far this year.
