Hi - just found you from Pat Sloan's site...
I so love your 'endless love'!! If you don't mind I am going to steal your idea for my parent's 60th Wedding Celebration next year (2/26/2009)! I've been trying to figure out what to make and I love your design! I hope you don't mind.

Rachel it's beautiful! You might want to give poor grandaddy a moment before your mom snaps the pic, cause I bet he is going to cry when he sees it.

Hi Rachel - Got a question for you...Do you machine quilt on your own machine or do you send your projects out to a quilter? I'm trying to learn (teach myself) how to quilt on my own Brother machine but am not having much success. Any tips? I've got the right darning foot and the feed dogs are covered by a plastic plate. Guess my problem is tension. So afraid to change it because it works so beautifully when I'm sewing straight line projects. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks! Jennifer
