Deana: New Toy and blocks in the mail...

I received these two wonderful blocks in the mail from Heather.



Don't they look wonderful with the quilt?  I am loving this project every step of the way, so much in fact,that I am having a hard time working on anything else.

ALSO, I got my new sit down long arm Juki set up today.  I am still waiting for two extension leaves that are on back order, but I plan to learn how to use the machine in just a few minutes without them.  I just can't wait!

I hope to have some machine quilting to show you soon.




Today I am linking up with:

I love these new blocks! I am still working on making the made fabric and cutting out each spoke piece.

I love that block. The quilt will be wonderful. Congratulations on the new Juki. I am curious how you manage the machine. A Juki is something I think about, too.
