I've been given a crash course in working the Statler while I've been here. I'm a bit of a technophobe, and when we were here two years ago I couldn't make head nor tail of it. But this time I seem to have come to grips with the basics and I've completed my first quilt on it. With a lot of guidance from Keryn and Kaye of course, but I still did a fair bit of the work.

I've said before how vertically challenged Keryn and I are, she's 5 foot and a fag end and I'm five foot high. We couldn't see what we were quilting, so Bruce took pity on us and carried in huge timbers to make us a platform the length of the rails. Now we get lots of comments about 'walking the plank' but at least we've got a better view. I can't believe how different the world looks when you're 6" further off the ground!
I think we got a bit carried away on this simple little top, but it was a good learning experience and I don't feel so intimidated now.

Keryn's patterns are lovely and I had fun choosing different ones to sample in the blocks.

Lots of quilting everywhere, and it looks nice on the back too.

Oh what fun -- and the quilting is exquisite! As somone who is not that much taller than 5' (5'4 1/2" to be exact) I empathize with the vertical challenges.

It certainly does look great. You do lovely quilting. I understand vertical challenge as well. So nice you can walk the plank while you quilt.

The quilting on that is great. How much does one of these beasts cost? More than I can afford I suppose.
