Trading Up?...


Microsoft clip art
As I sewed the borders on the 2011 Butterfly quilt last night, my mind began to consider....

I had just finished the Jacob's Ladder quilt and had pinned the label on the back to be sewn down.  I set it aside and began sewing the borders on the butterfly quilt.  

I thought to myself... "now I need a machine that could do a little bit of embroidery... that way I can stitch out my labels instead of writing them out with permanent marker..."

This of course is added to the wish list I have with a long arm quilting machine on it.    But seriously... got to thinking about it... I think I'll search for a sewing machine that I can use for sewing and just a little bit of embroidery. 

The long arm quilting machine is still on the list... that one I will have plan and budget for. :)
