I finished piecing my first Civil War quilt before I went to Paducah for the big AQS Show. I even loaded it on my APQS Millennium and ditch stitched along the side and across the top. My machine was working perfectly. So, I think the gremlins were here while I was away! Now my thread is breaking every 6 or 7 inches!!!! Nooooooooo!!! It's a longarmers nightmare. I'll figure it out eventually!
So here is a picture of my new beauty!! It is so warm and yummy and almost chocolatey!! Also BIG. It measures 92" x 92". Great on a queen size bed with enough hangover for two people to fit under comfortably.

Happy heart day! My DH said after he saw the price on three measly flowers he decided I could use the money for quilt stuff. OH YEAH! That works for ME!!! I think he was a little heart broken because he really wanted to get me the flowers. Not me, I'm a happy Valentine. My stuff will last longer than the flowers anyway.
So, here's how I spent some of my $$$!
