Quilt Progress

I’ve started working on my quilt again.  Yes, it’s been a while, but thanks to the wonderful ladies down at SewTech in Evansville, I now have the correct kind of bobbin for my machine and can adjust my own bobbin tension.  Apparently it’s not forbidden to do that after all. But, back to my quilt.…
