Loved the show Janet. Margo said she got to meet you during the taping! How cool for both of you. I love your approach and haven't done a BOM since the "Star" with Sue several years ago. I really prefer doing some of my own design and altering, but think I'll go along (and make my changes as the whim strikes) as your 'letter' fettish is so engaging.

I just read on a Yahoo group that it is #720 on the 830. The stitch goes forward, backward, forward, left, right (or mirrored), so much I found on my 440 but was then interrupted before I found it on the 830. Another person wrote the number on the group

In the instructions for the A block, it mentions the blanket stitch which is #46 on the Bernina 440. I know a blanket stitch on my 830. What is stitch #161 that is used for bias applique? I'll assume I have some equivalent stitch. I never realized a different stitch should be used if it was bias.

Thanks,
Lorna

Thank YOU, Donna! I would definitely say go for the embellishments! I just added a few buttons, but I could have added a lot more "stuff", had it not been for the fact that the quilt was going to have to be a kit. But, I LOVE embellishments, and they would be great on this quilt! :D

Thanks for clearing up the ruler sizes. I feel better now since I did order them already. I'm really looking forward to making this quilt. I've admired your work for several years. I'm thinking of ways to add some embellishments. Got to have a little bling. Donna

I also just noticed that they have the set of three FG rulers and the HST ruler listed in the TQS shoppe, although it says they are not available at this time. Maybe they are on backorder, but they might be available at Bloc Loc.

Donna, I believe Bloc Loc sells the FG rulers based on finished sizes. The HST ruler I used was a 5 1/2" ruler, which can be used to cut HST up to 5 1/2". I think, somewhere along the way, it was listed at a 5" ruler. I apologize for the mistake.
