Below you will see the second "Sandy Relief" quilt.
The close-up shows my own pantogrpah design for my longarm.
I learned that too large empty spaces do not work.
I may have to refine this pattern.

A second "Sandy Relief" quilt top was dropped off today so I would be able to practice on my longarm.
I decided I'm going to use one of my own pantographs that I designed on freezer paper.
Pictures soon.....................

Below you will see the finished Sandy Relief quilt. It realy did come out nice. The dark teal varigated thread looked great in the body of the quilt, but dissapeared

Guess what!

I think my check spring on my rotary tension device broke just as I was on the second to last row of my Sandy quilt.

I do know how to change the spring.

But, first I need to get the housing and the old spring out.
My husband was able to unlock the hex screw, it was too tight for me to unscrew.

So, next step is to loosen it and the housing is supposed to pull strait out.....NOT

Tomorrow I'll have dear husband look at it!
