Well I am not so patiently waiting for this baby, I made a block for Rachel.

We are in a virtual sewing bee together. Bee inspired!!!!!

Here is the block!

Congrats on the new machine. Someday I'll get a new one. Sigh...but my 12 year old Janome is still plugging along perfectly!

Great machine.. you will have fun!
Love the block. I haven't got my fabric yet... but have to overcome my aversion of triangles to do Rachel's block (shh don't tell Rachel!!) That's why I joined a bee, it makes me do things that I'm perfectly capable of doing but let fear stand in my way!!!

Ooh I really like your quilt block. I really should start quilting but I feel like once I do I'll be sucked in and I'm not ready yet. :) I'll live through your quilts in the meantime. Hooray for the new machine!
