HI LuAnn, Thanks for sharing those sketches. A sketchbook for ideas is exactly what I need to start. Will have to get one soonest as my machine quilting is one of these things I have vowed to work on this year.

Hi Heather,

I have a magazine article coming out about keeping a sketch book for quilters. It will be in the July issue of Machine Quilting Unlimited Magazine. There will be tips and hints and lots of new designs.
