Michelle:
We do sell with original box and all the attachments. I think that is important. I also make a quilted cover for the machine while its in the box to protect the paint. I'll post a few pics on the ones he is working on now. 

Michelle,

What's your seller ID on eBay?

Just read further. I'm interested. Click on my name then "start a conversation" (no need for a "friend" request). I'd like more info.

Michelle:
We're new to this, it started as a hobby to keep busy. Any ideas for websites we are interested in. My daughter set it up on Facebook as I know how to maneuver around there but I think a separate one is better? 

I think a separate website would be nice. Anything linked to Facebook is a deal breaker for me.

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. This quilt was made with my friend's DH shirts. He passed away two years ago and she wanted her grandson to have something to remember him by. There are two stars with the same fabrics as I free hand each one in pairs and switched backgrounds.  It was very emotional as he was a big part in our lives too.

Lovely machines.  I've been keeping an eye out on E-Bay, but so far I keep getting outbid at the last minute. 

I finished a couple of mug rugs for a swap on another forum.  I didn't like how the first one turned out -- I really am lousy at binding, so made a second using my preferred method of folding the back to the front for self binding.  But other than the binding I was happy with the play of colours.

Angele:

Here is my first UFO completed.  So now planning a new quilt and choosing my next UFO.

Very nice. I am eyeing up my bin of Hubby's shirts. After I finish some of the current projects I will be starting Papa's Stars for our grandson. I am planning to make Sawtooth Stars but also with sashing and cornerstones.

Michelle, I am also interested in FWs.  Just recently scored a white one on Ebay, and just love it, really nice one!  All it needed was a tangle of thread removed from the bobbin area, and oiled up and off it goes!  But then I tried to get one for my friend, and it arrived in damaged condition, not packed well, also it was in pretty sad shape to start with, and paid !90.00 for it.  Now it needs re pairs and broken parts replaced, and we're thlnking to be repainted.  It has been smeared with black paint over the decals to cover worn areas - long story, but we intend to get it fixed up anyway, not returning it.

Here's a photo of my latest (joins my two black ones,they are in good condition, too) but I wanted a white one!

I finished a UFO today. I actually hand sewed the binding. I took it to work and was able to get it done before my shift ended. Woo Hoo! It's in the wash. Photos tomorrow (probably in my blog).

Love that featherweight!

I spent the whole night tearing apart all my fabric storage looking for needle in the haystack white fabric with orange didn't find any so i'm gonna use the one piece that has bigger orange scale than I wanted just so I can sew again.

One thing I'm worried about with this quilt is I designed with wizard because i couldn't get it set up in EQ7 the way I wanted it.  Looked good on computer screen with colors but when i add material will it look the same or will the effect be changed by the material.  I'm gonna just take the plunge and try it.This will be the brightest quilt to date that I have done.  I'll be looking for my sunglasses.

For me each quilt I make is so much planning from initial thought to completion of quilt. Orange an d blue work ok?  what do you think?  I've gathered so much orange fabric I think I can do trip around world for flip side and still have orange left.  This one is for my Nephew he wants orange well I have so many shades and prints with orange hes sure to like one of the fabrics.
