Here is my "Bowling" Quilt for my father's Christmas present (in his late 80's he still likes to Bowl!)

I am very happy "enough" with it! After the first 1/3 of quilting this, I found out about the secret to changing my pressure foot Pressure! So the rest came out even better. Now that I know, I can't wait to start my next one!

Spray basting and pressure foot Pressure - what a big difference this all makes for me.

What a great gift for your father!! And done weeks before Christmas, I am so impressed! Treasure your father; my Dad passed away in March at the age of 94 - I did not realize last year would be his last Christmas.

My father would have loved that if he still bowled. It's fabulous!
