Ye Olde Forest Quilt shop has moved across the street more or less.

Batiks, grunges & other Moda bolts all on sale for ridiculously low prices plus an extra % off for end of the bolt. Patterns, Anita Goodesign CDs, needles, books, thread, so much more I can't begin to cover it all.

Apr 20: Loaded ready to quilt. Had to tweak the programming some.
The technique is to create a panto for the entire quilt & move it out of the way. (BTW, this is for my benefit more than yours.) For the first row, I will
