Well, we did the draw for my giveaway tonight. I wrote all the names on pieces of paper put them in a container and my husband drew out Joy V's name - congratulations Joy. The fabric below was printed with the thermofax screen design which is part of the prize package.
Thank you to everyone who commented - I do enjoy reading them and being part of the community of textile bloggers.
I've nearly finished my 4 12 x12 different country quilts. I'll post pics before I send them off.
Tomorrow I'm going to test drive a Juki Exceed HZL-500. I've been looking at buying a new sewing machine for a while - had decided to buy a Pfaff Quilt Expression 4 but when I tried it on the type of sewing I need it to do (free motion stitching on lumpy, thick, uneven surfaces) I wasn't convinced.
My dealer suggested I try the Brother QC-2000 which I was very impressed with but was a little concerned it wouldn't be strong enough so I continued looking. I've heard great reports of both machines so it may be difficult to decide.
