Several positives to report. My machine is back, working and happy.

And so am I.

And as a result I was able to sew the binding on my Califon quilt and hand stitch it down overnight.

My LAQ was incredibly fast and had it back to me in a couple of weeks.

I chose a continuous pattern with loads of swirls as so many of the fabrics in the quilt had swirling patterns in them.

There was a striped fabric in the range with some orange in it, so I used that for the binding.

Today was the perfect day with the sunshine to be outside taking photos.  I know I have to make the most of it as we are having typical Spring weather with plenty of showers.

I do love a good finish!

On a different note, I did try the idea of using the owl punch on some fabric with a stabilizer backing. No good. I tried a couple of different ways but still had no success. Did manage to jam up the punch but a little jiggling around sorted that out too.
