Joni:
But tomorrow going to AST for a lesson on my Baby Lock Ellegante

I was just looking at the Baby Lock Ellegante the other day. How do you like yours. Have you found it worth the price. Right now I have a Bernina but it has a  very small throat. I would appreciate any input you have to give on this machine. By the way, I did get to work on my block of the month today. I really need to get this block for November done so that I can finish the other things I have in the fire.

I love my Ellegante, she is amazing.  She sews beautifully and so far the embroidery is awesome.   If I ever decided to get a newer machine I l would stay with Baby Lock but get one with the camera and all the goodies.  But for now I more than satisfied with what I have, the price was awesome as it was a trade in by a customer who upgraded to a more expensive, newer machine.   It had been properly cared for by Ken at AST so they, knew the machine.  Also when purchase a machine from a dealer/quilt shop it is great as they help when you have questions or problems.  Of course I will have my machine serviced by Ken at least once or twice a year.

My class yesterday was fantastic.  Laurie did a thorough job teaching us about our machines.  I actually was able to do a fancy picture and will probably frame it just because.  I have been doing names on pillow cases before this lesson, but wanted to do more.  I also changed needle, cleaned out the dust bunnies etc., just learned some minor maintenance I can do to keep my machine clean and ready to sew.

You should check out the Baby Locks, they have many awesome machines in  all price ranges.  They have upgrade and updates.  Try several of the different models, if you can take a class when offered where they use the latest new machines, teach you and make a project, then offer you the machines at considerable discounts with financing.  I would have purchased the Ellisimo that was offered in the class I took, but I'm very happy with my "Elle", besides she is paid for and I've much to learn and experiment with for now! 

I hope you have a dealer/quilt shop you can check out.  We are so blessed with AST, they offered many perks with classes, clubs and of course thousands of beautiful fabrics.  The staff is super, knowledgeable, friendly and never too busy to assist you and answer your questions.  They also are up to date on all the latest tools and books and patterns.  They attend trade shows and keep us thirsting for more goodies.  I have made friends with other customers and have a great time the minute I walk in the door.

Wish you the same experience.

Belfrybat, to get your points to line up, try putting a pin right through the very tip of your points, going in towards the bulk our your block..  That should be just to the left side of your stitch when you sew them together (assuming your seam is on the right).  I'm sure there's video somewhere that will show you (with less confusion than I give I'm sure).

Yes I have a very reliable dealer not too close to me but close enough. Thank you so much for all the information. This is exactly what I needed to know. I'm so glad you are enjoying your new baby. I'm still saving my pennies for a new one soon. Again, thanks so much.

So many wonderful projects people!!  I am trying to keep up but I don't seem to have the time to spend on line like I did when I was working.  Go figure. 

I am going to take another run at the quilt I have been working on.  Just a few more rows to put togeather and then try and figure out the borders.  Should be fun.

Thank you Barbara & everyone else for the compliments on my quilt.  The blocks are from Carol Doak's book 50 Fabulous Paper-Pieced Stars.   I also took the Craftsy class, Quilting Big Projects on a Small Machine  & used the block Quilt As You Go to put it together.  I knew I wanted red, white & blue (patriotic colors) for the back so used my graph paper to figure out the block placement.  I'm very pleased with the way it turned out & learned from the experience.  I will definitely use these methods in the future too.
